Absolutely wonderful. I scaled it back to 3 servings & also took others advice about microwaving the potatoes 1st, I did it for about 5 minutes. I also left the peel on & sliced them that way. I took another persons advice & mixed the potatoes, cheese & onions in a bowl, put them on the bottom, poured milk over top and put pats of butter in as well. Then placed the chops over all that. I also poured a little bit of milk over the chops. Halfway through, I pulled the chops off, stirred the potatoes & put the chops back on making sure I flipped them. I used a lot of pepper (I am not a big salt fan). I also noticed it a little "watery" after the hour, so I left them in there a bit longer & took some of the juices and put over the chops. I think I may have used a little too much butter, but my fiancee who is SOOOOOOOOO picky about food, really enjoyed this. He voluntarily said, "This is something you can make again, this is really good" Read More

I agree that one hour was not enough time for the potatoes. I covered the dish hoping that would help cook the potatoes a little longer but I still ended cooking them an extra 30 minutes uncovering in the last 20 minutes. I don't know if it was the covering of the dish but the milk did not cook in completely and the potatoes were still pretty milky. Overall good taste but I think I will add flour in with the potatoes next time to try to thicken it up. Read More

This was really easy and good! I changed things alittle by slicing my potatoes and microwaving them for about 5 min. first but I pretty much kept everything else the same. I salt/peppered and alittle garlic powder on the chops before baking and mixed the oinions potatoes and cheese up in a bowl then put in pan covered with milk and butter and chops. This turned out really good with just the right flavor and chops were pretty tender. Great recipe! Read More

This turned out great! I cut the recipe in half since it was just for my husband and I. I microwaved the sliced potatoes for 10 minutes before putting them in the oven. I also added a pinch of garlic powder. The key to keeping the pork chops juicy is to put them under the potatoes. Read More

This recipe is delicious!!! I made this without the pork chops. I took other reviewers' advice and cut the potatoes very thin and then microwaved them for 10 mins. I also mixed the potatoes onions and cheese in a bowl and then put it all in baking dish. After adding the milk and 3 pats of butter I then spirnkled it with garlic powder and a little salt. I covered with foil for the first forty minutes and after 1 hour it was perfect!! My whole family loved it! Will definitely make again. Thanks! Read More

okay first off never use thick cut pork chops in this recipe! That was what I had so I tried it. Took over 2 hours to cook. Good flavor but the cheese looks very unappealing. Looked back over the other reviews and this seems to be a common problem. The flavor is good but perhaps a little pan searing before cooking would be better. Read More

This is quite good. I did feel the whole thing needed to be covered with foil for the first half of the baking time so as to ensure the potatoes would cook throughout. Also next time I will combine the potatoes cheese and onions before placing chops on top. I feel these ingredients would be mixed together more as true scalloped potatoes if prepared that way. Very good 'comfort food'. Thanks. Read More

These were okay! I read the reviews before I made them and everyone seemed to recommend microwaving potatoes before-hand. I microwaved my potatoes for 5 minutes before placing them in the baking dish and they still turned out under-cooked. I would recommend microwaving the potatoes for maybe 10 minutes. I would mix the milk onions and potatoes very well first and then put the cheese on top. Bake covered. The recipe doesn't specify but that would be best. Good luck. Read More

We've been making a dish like this for over 40 years. Our 7 kids grew-up on it and they made it for their kids. We always precook the potatoes about 10 minutes season and brown the steaks or chops with a little salt & pepper garlic powder and a tad of ground savory. We use a can of cream of mushroom and celery soup and 2 cans of milk. Mix the soup and milk together then in the baking dish mix the soup mixture with the potatoes. Nesle the chops into the potatoes so they are almost covered in the soup mix. Bake covered until the potatoes are tender and meat juices run clear. That's our version of scalloped potatoes and pork chops! Read More
