• 5 potatoes, white or Yukon Gold

  • 5 pork chops

  • 1 onion sliced or diced

  • 1 cup whole milk

  • 3 cups Cheddar Cheese, shredded

  • 3 tbsp butter, unsalted

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Optional: I add chives or green onions, a sprinkle of seasoning salt and a pinch of garlic salt to boost the bland flavor


  • Peel and slice the potatoes, no more than ¼ inch each slice

  • Peel and quarter the onion, split each quarter in half

  • Use a block of Cheddar Cheese, shred it freshly

  • Preheat the oven to 350*

  • Spray a baking dish

  • In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, onions, cheese and the milk, I also add in the seasonings at this time

  • Mix all together to combine well

  • Put this mix into the prepared baking pan

  • Slice the butter into equal slices and lay on top of the potato mix

  • Place the pork chops on top of the cheese and potato mixture

  • Bake for 50 to 55 minutes at 350*

  • Halfway through the cooking time, flip the pork chops over

  • Check the pork to ensure it is no longer pink, if it is, continue baking for another 15 minutes.

  • Stab the potatoes with a fork to check for tenderness. If they also need longer, cover the baking pan with aluminum foil to prevent the meat from drying out.
