What Makes This Casserole So Good
- It comes together in just a few simple steps! Quickly sear the pork chops, then mix the casserole ingredients together in a bowl. Layer each component then bake – that’s it!
- It’s a complete meal in just one dish! With soft and tender potatoes on the bottom and juicy pork chops on top, this recipe has it all. Throw together this full and satisfying meal next time you’re craving something wholesome and delicious.
- It’s a total crowd-pleaser! I love layering together this pork chop casserole for friends and family. Everyone licks their plates clean of this cheesy, flavorful, and hearty meal.
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.
