Cheesy Pork Chops and Potatoes

Our daughter loves helping find potatoes as I dig them up from our garden (and picking out worms from the dirt to keep in a container for close observation of their “wormy party” as we work, ha).

Here’s a freezer recipe I made with some of our garden veggies: Cheesy Pork Chops & Potatoes. It has only 5 ingredients but has a great cheesy, potato-y flavor. It’s one of my favorites! I served these with a side of cilantro-lime rice (another one of my freezer-friendly favorites).

Cheesy Pork Chops and Potatoes - includes freezer instructions - make 2 and freeze the extra. Only 5 ingredients but SO tender and delicious.

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 5 pork chops (more if you use thin sliced chops)
  • 2 potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 can cheddar cheese soup
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1 c. chopped onion
  • salt and pepper

WHAT YOU DO:

If freezing – in a gallon-size freezer bag, mix cheddar cheese soup and milk. Add onion and potato. Season both sides of pork chops with salt and pepper then place in the bag. Label with a permanent marker and store in the freezer. To prepare, thaw overnight in the fridge. Pour into a 9×13 casserole dish and bake at 400F for 45-60 mins (or until potatoes are soft) and chops are cooked through.

If preparing right away – in a small mixing bowl, mix cheese soup and milk. Add onion. Season both sides of pork chops with salt and pepper, then place in a 9×13 baking dish. Pour approximately 1/3 of the cheese mixture on the pork chops. Then layer potato slices on top, and pour the remaining sauce on top. Bake at 400F for 45-60 mins (or until potatoes are soft) and chops are cooked through.

Optional: Serve with a side of cilantro-lime rice (also freezer friendly!)
