Easy Pork Recipe with Scalloped Potatoes

Updated on January 19, 2017

Easy One Dish Meal

Making an easy one dish meal that the family enjoys certainly makes life easier on the cook. Cooking a one dish meal has the advantage of dirtying less pans, and recipes can be adjusted to feed a large group of people. Great, inexpensive meals can be prepared quite easily. Another upside is the simple clean-up.

I have used various recipes for scalloped potatoes through the years, but finally created some of my own simple recipes. I baked pork chops on top of this scalloped potato recipe after trimming away the excess fat.

In Conclusion

There are many excellent ways to eat baked pork chops, plus there are numerous scalloped potato recipes available. Cheesy scalloped potatoes is also a family favorite. What I like about the recipe I used today was how quickly I prepared the recipe and had it in the oven. The biggest job is preparing the potatoes. There was no sauce to cook which sped up the preparation time and my family was happy with the results.

    Hi Pamela,

    This recipe of yours sounds similar to one my paternal grandmother prepared years ago and it was good. I really admired her! Even after she was widowed for many years, she always cooked a good home cooked meal for herself every day if not invited to our home or someplace else. Voted useful and up!

    Hi Pamela99, This is a great go to recipe that is easy to prepare with very little cleanup. In fact, it is one that my Mom made just the other day. She's almost 87! We grew up on this delicious comfort food. I like the idea of adding the flavored celery soup. She uses milk with a little flour or Bisquick. Thanks for the recipe.
