Scalloped Potatoes and Rutabaga with Pork Chops Thyme and Cheddar Cheese

I have become very fond of rutabagas. And they shine in Scalloped Potatoes and Rutabaga with Pork Chops Thyme and Cheddar Cheese.

Rutabagas are not glamorous, that is for sure, but they are earthy and delicious. They are a delicious addition to any potato dish. To make this dish our main course I including some pork chops for a one-pan dinner. We served this dish with applesauce, but you could add a green vegetable also, it is up to you!

Scalloped Potatoes with Rutabaga and Pork Chops Thyme and 
Cheddar Cheese
by the seat of my pants!
350-degree oven

6 small potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
3 small rutabaga, peeled and sliced thin
1 medium-size onion, diced
Pork Chops (4-6 or the amount that works for your family)
salt and pepper
1 c diced cheddar cheese
1 large can evaporated milk
2 c stock
garlic salt
1 tsp thyme leaves
1/3 c flour

Season pork chops with salt and pepper, brown well, set aside.

In a large baking dish add the pork chops to the bottom. Sprinkle with the diced cheddar cheese.

In a large bowl, combine the potato slices, rutabaga slices, and diced onions. Add a generous sprinkling of garlic salt and the thyme leaves crumbled. Toss around in the bowl to coat the vegetables with the seasonings. Cover the pork chops with the vegetables.

This 10X14 baking dish is my favorite for scalloped dishes,
the depth will accommodate all the liquid without a boil over on the bottom of the oven.  

Sprinkle the top with approximately 1/3 c flour, pour over the top the stock and the milk. Cover with a lid (or foil) and bake at 350 degrees for 2 hours. Remove the lid after 1 1/2 hours to evaporate some of the juices.

Warning: not very pretty, only very delicious!
