Breaded Pork Medallions

1 pork tenderloin (I use pork loin, it is a little cheaper)
Garlic and Herb spreadable cheese (usually found in your fancy cheese section)
Italian Bread crumbs

Spray a large sheet pan with nonstick spray; set aside.
Rinse the pork under cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
Cut 1-inch slice medallions; set aside on paper towel.
Lay all of pork out on paper towel or cutting board, cover with plastic wrap and pound each piece with a kitchen mallet until all pieces are 1/4" thin.

Spread a very light coating of the spreadable cheese on each side of the medallions.
Coat each slice in the bread crumbs.

(this is all already done)

Spray the tops of the pork with nonstick spray and bake in a 400° preheated oven for 30 mins.

Serve with mashed Potatoes and Green Beans
