PORK CHOPS WITH SCALLOPED POTATOES

Ingredients:

  • 5 potatoes, white or Yukon Gold
  • 5 pork chops
  • 1 onion sliced or diced
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3 cups Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • 3 tbsp butter, unsalted
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: I add chives or green onions, a sprinkle of seasoning salt and a pinch of garlic salt to boost the bland flavor

Instructions:

  • Peel and slice the potatoes, no more than ¼ inch each slice
  • Peel and quarter the onion, split each quarter in half
  • Use a block of Cheddar Cheese, shred it freshly
  • Preheat the oven to 350*
  • Spray a baking dish
  • In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, onions, cheese and the milk, I also add in the seasonings at this time
  • Mix all together to combine well
  • Put this mix into the prepared baking pan
  • Slice the butter into equal slices and lay on top of the potato mix
  • Place the pork chops on top of the cheese and potato mixture
  • Bake for 50 to 55 minutes at 350*
  • Halfway through the cooking time, flip the pork chops over
  • Check the pork to ensure it is no longer pink, if it is, continue baking for another 15 minutes.
  • Stab the potatoes with a fork to check for tenderness. If they also need longer, cover the baking pan with aluminum foil to prevent the meat from drying out.
