Make your pork chops and scalloped potatoes in the same pan for even bigger flavor and fewer dishes! Maw-Maw definitely had the right idea when she started making this delicious dinner!

     This is a hearty and delicious meal baked in one dish.  The potatoes and the pork chops cook together and give each other flavor as they do. 

This is one of those things where they are better together than separate, plus it’s easier too! Make this filling meal and watch your family rush to the table!

     Carlee and I have been after Maw-Maw to share some of her recipes with us.  We couldn’t understand why we were receiving any.

   It turns out that she didn’t use recipes for the things she cooked.  She usually just cooked.

    We understand because even if we have a recipe, we tend to make up our own version.  I called Maw-Maw and she coached me through this recipe.

   This is one I remember eating quite often when I was a child.  I believe Bob, Bonnie and I liked it a lot.

    I started helping my mom cook meals when I was fairly young.  She worked long hours some days, but still wanted us to have a nice home cooked dinner.

    I have probably made this recipe hundreds of times, but it really took some thinking to make a recipe for it.

   I guess that’s the way it is when you’re used to just throwing things together.  This turned out just the way I remembered it to be.

    These are the only scalloped potatoes that I have ever seen that are made without cooking the white sauce first.  The sauce just magically thickens as it bakes.

   You can make them without the pork chops on top.  The pork chops make this dinner extra flavorful.

        I hope your family enjoys this as much as I did growing up.  More of Maw-Maw’s recipes will be shared soon.  Her love for cooking may not be as strong as mine, but what she does make is perfection.

    I’m glad she taught me to be independent in the kitchen.  I’ll always remember the first meal I cooked.  It was for a Girl Scout badge.  I’ll share that sometime also.

Any comments helping encourage Maw-Maw to write out and share some more of her recipes would be greatly appreciated.  I consider heirloom recipes to be like a tasty family tree.

Thanks,

MiMi

  If you like the idea of this tasty, filling meal, but don’t want to cut all those potatoes, check out my cheesy potato and pork chop casserole.  It uses hash browns, so you can have it in the oven in no time.

Maw-Maw's One Pan Scalloped Potatoes and Pork Chops

This is a hearty and delicious meal baked in one dish. The potatoes and the pork chops cook together and give each other flavor as they do. This is one of those things where they are better together than separate, plus it’s easier too! Make this filling meal and watch your family rush to the table!

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 45 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 8 medium potatoes, thinly sliced (peel if desired)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • 6 Tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 6 Pork chops
  • Salt, pepper and Cavendar’s to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Generously grease a 9 x 13 pan with a half tablespoon of butter
  3. Spread half of the potatoes across the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle with half the flour, half the onion and thin slices of half of the butter
  4. Season with salt and pepper, top that with remaining potatoes, onion, flour and butter.
  5. Season with more salt and pepper. Pour milk over top
  6. Bake covered for 30 minutes
  7. Meanwhile, season pork chops and allow to come to room temperature
  8. After the first half hour of baking, remove potatoes from oven and stir
  9. Place pork chops on top of potatoes, cover and return to oven for another half hour
  10. Remove cover and bake for another 30-45 minutes. The pork chops should be tender. I really like it when the potatoes get a little brown around the edges. That is my favorite part, yum!
