Pork Chop Potato Casserole is a hearty casserole with a creamy hashbrown potato mixture on the bottom topped with pork chops, French-fried onions and cheddar cheese.

The pork chops cook right on top of the potato mixture so all the yummy juices released as the pork chops cook flavor the potatoes.

How To Serve

This is a heavy, hearty recipe and is best served with a light vegetable side or a salad. Some good choices are a green salad with Creamy Italian Dressing, Southern-Style Green Beans, green peas, and Cracker Barrel Baby Limas.

Ingredients Needed

  • Vegetable oil– or olive oil
  • Frozen Diced Hashbrown Potatoes– you can use shredded hashbrown potatoes instead.
  • Pork Chops– you can use either bone-in or boneless.
  • Condensed Cream of Celery Soup– cream of mushroom or cream of chicken can be used instead.
  • Sour Cream
  • Milk
  • Cheddar Cheese– I use sharp cheddar cheese.
  • French-Fried Onions– nothing more delicious than a crunchy onion toppping!

Thaw The Potatoes and Briefly Precook

Let the hashbrowns thaw in the refrigerator overnight or on the counter for a few hours. Potatoes can take a really long time to cook in the oven so I like to pan-fry them for about 4 to 5 minutes before adding them to the casserole dish. Not only does it give them a jump start on cooking, it also adds flavor.

Recipe Tips

You can use bone-in or boneless pork chops. If you use really thick bone-in pork chops, you may need to increase the cooking time some. To be sure they are done, use a thermometer. They should reach an internal temperature of 145 F.

Be careful not to overcook the pork chops. If they are really thin, you may want to shorten the cooking time by 5 to 10 minutes. Overcooked pork chops are dry and tough.

Storage

Leftovers will keep for 3 to 4 days in an airtight conatiner in the refrigerator.
