Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish with 1 tablespoon butter.

  • Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium heat. Season pork chops with salt and pepper; cook in skillet until browned, 3 to 5 minutes per side.

  • Melt remaining 3 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir mustard and thyme into the butter; season with salt and pepper. Whisk flour into the butter mixture to make a thick paste. Slowly whisk chicken broth and half-and-half into the paste mixture until smooth. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until it begins to thicken into a sauce, about 5 minutes; remove from heat.

  • Cover the bottom of the prepared baking dish with about half the potato slices and diced onion. Sprinkle about half the Cheddar cheese over the potato mixture. Arrange the pork chops over cheese layer. Layer remaining potatoes and onion atop the pork chops. Pour the sauce evenly over the potato mixture.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. Top dish with remaining Cheddar cheese, switch oven to broil, and continue baking until the top is browned and bubbly, about 5 minutes.

Everyone absolutely loved this! The potatoes on top were not fully cooked so next time, all potatoes will be underneath the chops. I also added pre-cooked mushrooms instead of onions. I seasoned the chops with Montreal Steak seasoning. I used sharp cheddar for more flavor and doubled what the recipe called for because I'm a cheese freak. At the end of the baking process, I topped the dish with crushed croutons (I make homemade but I'm sure store bought would be great too) and instead of putting it under the broiler, I baked at 350 for another 15 minutes. The potatoes were cooked and the croutons didn't burn. The addition of the croutons definitely upped this from a 4.5 star dish to a 5 star dish. Would not make it again without them. Read More

This was the perfect recipe in a pinch. I had to substitute whole milk for the half and half but it didn't affect creaminess of sauce. My whole family enjoyed it even our picky 3 year old. I used 6 thick cut pork chops and was surprised that everything was cooked thru and perfect. Thanks I will definitely be making this again! Read More

We really enjoyed this. I think I would like a little more sauce and cheese in the future, but I will definitely be making this again. I have no comparison for a difference in taste, but I used whole-wheat flour instead of white. Read More

What a great comfort food recipe! Fantastic flavors and easy to make. My only small changes were to use regular thickness pork chops, add an extra tablespoon of flour to the sauce and use a combination of thyme and rosemary for seasoning. Happy baking! Read More

Liked it. I think it could have used another 15-20 cook time. Great flavor. Read More

We really enjoyed this recipe the only thing that I did different was only 1 teaspoon of thyme. Also, the recipe didn't say to cover the dish for the baking part of the recipe. Next time I make this I am going to cover it for the baking and uncover for the broil part. Our potatoes was a little crunch; but still good. Read More

This was tasty comfort food! I baked it for 50 minutes covered and then took the cover off for the remaining 10 minutes. Too lazy to broil. Not all of the potatoes were cooked through so next time I would either bake it for an additional 15 minutes or so or use my mandoline to slice the potatoes thinner. Read More
