INFO NOTE:  This recipe would be perfect for the newer 9X13 slow cookers that came on the market recently....

There are some dishes from your childhood that never leave your " I would sure like some of that tonight", request list. This is one of those. Tried and true, real home cooking.

Home cooking is nothing more than a process of using what is available in your pantry. That process repeated time after time becomes a recipe. That recipe is more than food, it is love and memories all rolled into one! I am sure I watched Mom make this many, many times. It was a super easy supper, one she could fix and forget, for about an hour, anyway!

Scalloped potatoes and pork chops - a freestyle tutorial.
by the seat of my pants!
375-degree oven or you could use your slow cooker

4 pork chops
4-6 potatoes
1 large onion
garlic salt
1/4 c flour
black pepper
2 cans evaporated milk
Parmesan cheese (yep the green shaker stuff)

Brown the pork chops.

Place them in a large 11X15 pan, sprinkle with garlic salt and crushed thyme.

Slice 3 of the potatoes, dice 1/2 of the onion.

Cover the chops with the onion, then sliced potatoes.

Season with more garlic salt, crushed thyme. Sprinkle with the 1/4 c flour.

Slice and dice the remaining vegetables.

Season the top with more garlic salt, thyme, and fresh ground pepper.

Pour the two cans of milk over the top, cover with foil, sealing well. Bake for 1 hour.

Remove the foil, sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the potatoes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350-degrees, return the pan to the oven and continue baking for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven, and let rest 10-15 minutes before serving.

  1. Melynda - dang girl those chops looks good - my kids adore porkchops, I will have to try this out! Meals Mom made are always winners! Can I use cream in place of the evaporated milk? I always have some from the raw milk we get.

  2. Oh this is comfort food...I love scalloped potatoes...Never had had them bake on pork chops.

  3. This looks wonderful! I love how brown you got the chops, I always try for that, but I get impatient.

  4. Christy, cream is always the correct answer!

    Bo, the chops are on the bottom of the pan, simmering in milk. They get pretty tender that way.

    Pam, I finally realized I needed to go back to the future and got a cast iron pan. Now I have to be careful or that will over brown, if you know what I mean!

  5. One dish meals are my very favourite. I'm always looking for new ones. This looks delicious. Perfect for the crock pot!

  6. That sounds like the way my Mother made scalloped potatoes but she didn't add the pork chops. I am going to be giving this a try soon.

  7. That looks so good. I've tried oven baked scalloped potatoes before but my potatoes never seemed to cook through. I can't wait to try this one with the different temps. Thanks for sharing. Take care.

  8. You cant go wrong with pork chops and potatoes together...This sounds great!

  9. MMMMMMMM This looks spectacular -- I love the home-cooked goodness of scalloped potatoes and can't imagine how scrumptious they taste baked along with the chops! Thanks for sharing this tasty recipe with Friday Potluck!

  10. wow...looks so yummy! i love porkchops. happy weekend! :)

  11. Melynda,
    Your pork chops look great. I just love the combination of pork chops potatoes and onions. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

  12. This looks great! I have a similar recipe but never used the evaporated milk before. YUM!

  13. Brenda, I think the crock pot would work very well with this dish. I am going to try the next batch in mine.

    Rocquie, thanks for stopping, do give this a try. This also works well with leftover ham.

    Sheila, potatoes are funny. Sometimes they are dry also. That's the reason for the 2 cans of milk. I would rather have creamy sauce in the bottom of the pan, than dry spuds.

    Kirby, your are correct. Pork and potatoes are always delicious!

    EKat, the milks for some reason cooks the chops to a moist and tender texture. My favorite, I have been know to cook pork to dry.

    cheerful & pegasuslegend, thanks so much for visiting!

    Miz Helen, I agree the trio is a happy one.

    e-mom & Julie, thanks for visiting.

    Everyone, I appreciate your visits, thanks so much!

  14. Mmmm, comfort food! This looks delicious - Like it would just hit the spot! Two of my favorites from my childhood are porkchops with mustard sauce and scallopped potatoes, so I bet I would love this.

  15. Mmmm...Comfort food at it's best. I've never had pork with scalloped potatoes. I bet that milk really helps tenderize those chops.

  16. One pan? Yes, I love no mess, no fuss meals that still wow the tastebuds.

  17. This dish looks great! I have to ask, is that a Rachael Ray iron skillet? I ask because I have one on order that looks just like that one. The first thing I want to cook in it is pork chops like my Dad did when I was a kid. There is nothing like an iron skillet for crispy pork chops.
