Pork Chops with Scalloped Potatoes Recipe


4 pork chops, bone-in or boneless

4 large potatoes, thinly sliced

1 onion, thinly sliced

2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

2 cups milk or heavy cream

2 tbsp butter

2 cloves garlic, minced

Salt, pepper, and paprika to taste

1 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


Preparing the Pork Chops: Season the pork chops with salt, pepper, and a sprinkle of paprika. In a skillet over medium heat, add olive oil and sear the pork chops until golden brown on both sides. Remove and set aside.

Making the Scalloped Potatoes: In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant. Slowly add in the milk or heavy cream and bring to a simmer. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in half of the cheddar cheese until melted and creamy.

Layering the Dish: In a greased baking dish, start with a layer of sliced potatoes, followed by onions. Pour a portion of the creamy cheese mixture over the potatoes and onions. Repeat the layers until all ingredients are used.

Assembling: Place the seared pork chops on top of the layered potatoes. Sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese on top.

Baking: Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Bake the dish for about 30-40 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender and the top is golden brown.

Serving: Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. Garnish with chopped parsley before serving.


For an extra touch, you can add some breadcrumbs on top before baking for a crunchy texture.

This dish pairs wonderfully with green beans or a simple side salad.
