Quick and easy low carb Parmesan Pork Chops that make an easy dinner and also freeze great for later use.

I have been making these simple Parmesan Pork Chops for years, inspired by a dish my mother used to make. Her version included breadcrumbs and an obscene amount of oil, but I have found I like this baked version using all Parmesan cheese even better. The cheese creates a yummy crunch on the outside that pairs with the lemon and Italian seasoning perfectly. I like to serve mine with a big salad with a mound of garlic mashed cauliflower. It's also delicious with these Baked Parmesan Tomatoes and a bed of Creamy Ricotta Spaghetti Squash.

I'm glad someone asked this! I just prepped my pork and Brussels sprouts for supper tonight. This recipe appears more than once when searching (with different comments).
