Pork Chops with Scalloped Potatoes Recipe

This classic dish combines tender, flavorful pork chops with creamy, cheesy scalloped potatoes. Perfect for a comforting family dinner or special occasion.


For the Pork Chops:

  • 4 pork chops (bone-in or boneless, about 1 inch thick)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary

For the Scalloped Potatoes:

  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


1. Prepare the Pork Chops:

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  • Season the pork chops with salt and pepper on both sides.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the olive oil and butter.
  • Once the butter has melted and the skillet is hot, add the pork chops. Sear them for about 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown. Remove the pork chops from the skillet and set aside.

2. Make the Sauce:

  • In the same skillet, add the chopped onion and sauté until it becomes translucent, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  • Pour in the chicken broth and heavy cream, stirring to combine.
  • Add the dried thyme and rosemary, and let the sauce simmer for about 5 minutes until it thickens slightly. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

3. Prepare the Scalloped Potatoes:

  • In a greased 9×13-inch baking dish, arrange a layer of sliced potatoes.
  • Sprinkle a mixture of cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, and Parmesan cheese over the potatoes.
  • Repeat the layers until all the potatoes and cheese are used up, ending with a layer of cheese on top.
  • Pour the heavy cream evenly over the potatoes and dot with butter. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Combine and Bake:

  • Place the seared pork chops on top of the scalloped potatoes in the baking dish.
  • Pour the prepared sauce over the pork chops and potatoes, ensuring everything is well-coated.
  • Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes.
  • Remove the foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and the top is golden brown.

5. Serve:

  • Garnish with fresh parsley before serving.
  • Serve hot and enjoy your pork chops with creamy scalloped potatoes!

This delicious and hearty meal is sure to please everyone at the table. Enjoy!
