Key Ingredients for Pork Chop Casserole
Pork Chops – I prefer boneless pork chops for how easy they are to eat. Everyone can go straight into cutting into these tender pork chops rather than having to cut around any bones. I also recommend using pork chops that are around 1-inch thick. These will cook up perfectly over top of this casserole.
French-Fried Onions – This crispy snack adds a delicious crunch to this pork chop casserole. For low-carb and gluten-free versions, you can leave the French-fried onions out of this recipe. However, I love getting some crispy bits in with each bite – yum!
Potatoes – Any potatoes will work in this recipe. I used large russet potatoes in my pork chop casserole and had great results. You even have the choice to leave the skin on or peel the skin off if you’d like. Once you’ve decided on a type of potato, simply slice it into even approximately 1/4 to 1/8-inch rounds for this recipe.
- Quickly sear the pork chops over high heat before layering them into the casserole. The goal here is to brown the pork chops, not cook them through. Once in the oven, the pork chops will fully cook until tender!
- You can easily freeze this casserole if you’d like! To do this, assemble the recipe as directed and leave off the top layer of French-fried onions. Then seal tightly with plastic wrap and place in the freezer. When cooking from frozen, let the casserole defrost completely before topping with onions and then baking as instructed in the recipe below.
- Serve this delicious pork chop casserole however you’d like! I love sprinkling it with some fresh chopped parsley before enjoying. I’ll even sometimes serve it with a side salad for a complete and healthy meal.

My love of food goes all the way back to my early childhood, I grew up cooking alongside my mom and Nonna – the two best cooks I know! When I’m not in the kitchen, I’m either planning my next vacation, spending time outdoors (preferably on a beach), or bingeing Netflix’s latest docu-series. My passion for eating and living well led me to create the blog and Instagram account, Sam Does Her Best, where I health-ify my favorite comfort foods. I’m a big believer that good-for-you food can still be exploding with flavor and (most importantly) easy to make.
