One Pan Pork Chops and Scalloped Potatoes

One Pan Pork Chops and Scalloped Potatoes, just like Mom doesn't get much better than this! Food made with love served with love and loved by all who enjoy time around your table. That's a pan of One Pan Pork Chops and Scalloped Potatoes!

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. This big old pan of comfort food is always a hit, and if there are leftovers, rest assured they are delicious the next day. 

I know I am beginning to sound like a broken record, but 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 now is more than just food, it is love and memories all rolled into one! Like this recipe for One Pan Pork Chops and Scalloped Potatoes

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! And don't we all need more recipes like that? Add a vegetable side dish, and fresh fruit, and a cookie and you have now given the family a memorable meal, because yes (once again) you added a bit of that special ingredient, love...

While this does have a list of ingredients, it really is more a process than an exact recipe, so if you want more onion, make it so! If you don't like thyme, yes, you can leave it out. But no matter what or how you customize it, it will always be delicious!

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • pork chops
  • potatoes
  • onion
  • garlic salt
  • fresh ground pepper
  • thyme
  • flour
  • canned evaporated milk
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • oil
You will also need the following:
  • kitchen knife
  • cutting board
  • frying pan
  • deep 11X15 baking pan
  • measuring cup
Now you are ready to begin!
