I will be announcing the winner soon.

Hi everyone its so good to be back home in Texas. I was off in Park City, Utah for a couple days attending the Evo 10 Conference. I had so much fun meeting up with lots of bloggers and meeting new friends. It’s always so nice to get away for a bit, but there really is no place like home. Today I wanted to start the week off by posting about a wonderful product that I have been introduced to. What is this product you ask? Well it is the House -Autry Mills Products and they are so awesome. I was first introduced to House – Autry Mills a couple weeks back by my friend Christy over at Southerplate.

She asked me if I wanted to participate in trying out a few samples of a great southern food product and then writing about my experience. Well being a southern girl that loves all things southern, I said yes of course. I’m always up for a good southern food product as well as anything that will make dinner time a bit easier for me. Who wouldn’t love that! I was so excited when my gift basket arrived. It was packed full of House – Autry Products for just about anything you could imagine.

retail title Breading mixes for meats and seafood and a hushpuppy mix. House – Autry also makes a seasoned chicken fry mix that comes in regular or spicy. They have mixes for biscuits, cornbread, hushpuppies and onion rings. You can purchase regular or spicy mixes so you see they have a variety of different mixes to suit every ones taste. House – Autry has been the choice of southern cooks since 1812.

For many years, their number one product was corn meal. Over the years they have added breading mixes for chicken, pork and seafood. Then they added hushpuppy, biscuit, cornbread and a onion ring mixes and more. All of their coatings are specially milled and mixed to cook up light, crispy, and tasty. I usually have problems with boxed breading mixes not wanting to stick to pork chops or chicken.

I just so happen to have some pork chops in the freezer that I wanted to use for dinner. What better way then try out one of their breaders. When I first opened the mix up I could immediately smell all the different spices especially the celery. My first thought was that the pork chops might turn out way to seasoned since the spices were so strong.

All I needed to do was we the pork chops and then dip them in the seasoning mix and pan fry or oven bake them. I chose to pan fry them since that is our favorite way to eat thin pork chops. I was so excited at how well the breading stuck to the chops. It wasn’t thick at all, in fact it was just a light coating but the pork chops turned out so crispy and all the breading stayed on.

When dinner was ready the pork chops were indeed crispy and everyone in my family loved them. I am happy to say the pork chops were not over seasoned one bit. I am so glad I got to try out a few of the House – Autry Mills products. I have also included a Store Locator so you can find a House – Autry retailer near you.
