Beef Nacho Bake

  Though the ingredients to this recipe are simple, the flavors of the end result, are full on complex!  You won’t be able to quite put your finger on the flavors, but it sure tastes good!

  Guess where this recipe comes from?

  From my mom’s recipe box!  Tucked between sections, is a 1980’s Miracle Whip Label featuring this very recipe!  It MUST be good, because our family has been making it ever since.  🙂

One Dish Pork Chop Potato Casserole

  I am always drawn to recipes where there are 2 items in one pan…less dishes later!  This Pork Chop Potato Casserole recipe comes from Gooseberry Patch’s New Cookbook, I found it on my friend, Brandie’s (aka The Country Cook) site and knew I HAD to make it……..

It’s a keeper!

One Dish Pork Chop Potato Casserole

079 (2)


  • 8 whole Boneless Pork Chops, Seasoned As You Wish
  • 1 Tablespoon Oil
  • 1 cup Sour Cream
  • 1 can 10 Oz. Cream Of Celery Soup
  • ½ cups Milk
  • 32 ounces, weight Hash browns, Thawed
  • Salt, Pepper And Garlic Powder, To Taste
  • 1 can French Fried Onions
  • 1 cup Shredded Cheese

Preheat oven to 350*. Season both sides of pork chops with salt, pepper, whatever you like. In a large skillet, brown pork chops on both sides in hot oil. Set aside. (They will not be cooked all the way and that’s ok, it’s headed to the oven next.)
In a large bowl, combine sour cream, cream of celery soup and milk. Stir in hash browns, salt, pepper and garlic powder, then half of the French fried onions. Spread hash brown mixture in an un-greased 9×13 baking dish and sprinkle with cheese. Top with seared pork chops, arranging so that none are over top another. Bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes. Add remaining French Fried onions and bake 5-10 minutes more.

Steam some green beans while this bakes and you have your whole meal just like that! Easy and delicious!

* Do not use too thin of boneless pork chops for this, they will dry out. Bone in would also be a good option but you will probably bake it longer. 

Happy Cooking!
