Pork loin cutlets with creamy mustard sauce

What is ~

Simple, easy, one-pot-wonder, set & forget

Answer ~

Phrases that I prefer in a recipe

You know how it is, you're either at work or running around during the day, you pick the kids up from school and you taxi them from one after-school activity to the next, all the while your sifting through your memory for a quick, easy meal for the evening that has just a smidge of nutritional value.

Toasted cheese sandwiches are served up on a weekly basis in our home as a "meal!" and this is how I justify it nutritionally ~ fibre from the bread, calcium from the cheese!!!!

It's never easy, so when I came across this recipe from and saw that it ticked most of my requirements, and that I had most of the ingredients, I knew it was going to be a mid-week meal for us, and maybe for you!
