Preheat oven to 220 degrees C.

Place the breadcrumbs, garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl.

Mix to combine and set aside.

Rub the mustard over the pork chops and roll in the breadcrumb mixture.

Place on a lined oven tray and roast for 10 minutes.

Turn the chops over and roast for another 7 – 10 minutes until golden and cooked through.

While the pork is roasting, make the mash by placing the potatoes and apples in a large pot with salted cold water.

Bring to the boil and then simmer until the potatoes are soft (about 10 – 15 minutes).

Drain, return to the pot and mash with the butter.

Season to taste and stir in the chopped sage.

Serve immediately with the pork chops.
