Easy Pork Chop Potato Casserole Recipe

Our easy old-fashioned Pork Chop Casserole recipe combines the flavor of my French Onion Pork Chops with the creaminess of my Potatoes au Gratin and cooks it all together as one pork chop potato casserole.

Boneless pork chop casseroles are so easy to prepare: sear the pork, then place each piece over a Scalloped Potatoes side that’s been covered with sauce and cheese, then bake until bubbly and the French fried onions are golden and crispy.

What I love most about this baked pork chop and potato casserole is how the potatoes absorb the mushroom soup mixture and soak up all the flavor as they soften in the sauce – a perfect pairing with the tender pork chops baked on top.

Substitutions and Additions

  • Choose Your Cheese: You can substitute mild shredded cheddar cheese or Monterey jack cheese for the Colby jack. You can use any combination of these, and they will all taste great.
  • Customize Your Casserole: You can choose your favorite boxed potato flavor as this is a very simple casserole that you can customize according to your liking.
  • Swap The Soup: I love the flavor that the cream of mushroom soup gives this recipe. You can substitute a can of standard cream of chicken soup or a standard can of cream of celery soup if that is what you have.

How to Make Pork Chop Casserole

  1. Prepare The Pork: Season both sides of the pork chops with salt and pepper. Sear the seasoned pork chops in oil for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Set aside to rest while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
    Pro Tip: You may need to sear your pork chops in two batches if your pan is too crowded with all six pork chops in the pan at once.
  2. Pour Potatoes In The Pan: Separate the flavor pouches from the dried potatoes. Pour the potatoes into the bottom of the casserole dish (Image 1). Set aside.
  3. Make The Soup Mixture: Whisk together the soup, sour cream, potato flavor pouches, and milk until fully combined and no lumps remain.
  4. Assemble: Pour the soup mixture over the potatoes and sprinkle with cheese (Image 2). Place the seared pork chops on top of the potatoes and cover with the remaining cheese. (Image 3)
  5. Bake: Cover the casserole dish with aluminum foil and bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes (Image 4). Remove the foil, sprinkle the French fried onions on top (Image 5), and bake, uncovered, for an additional 5-10 minutes or until the casserole is bubbly and the French fried onions are golden and crispy. (Image 6)
  6. Serve: Allow the casserole to rest for 5-8 minutes. Sprinkle with the chopped fresh parsley before serving. Enjoy!

Tips For Making The Best Pork Chop Casserole

  • This pork chop casserole is best served while still warm. Remember that the longer this sits, the more the potatoes will thicken and absorb the liquids from the dish.
  • I like to put my whole milk in a microwave-safe liquid measuring cup (glass is best) and heat it on high for 2-2½ minutes to warm it up before adding it to my cream of mushroom soup mixture. You do not want to boil the milk. Just get it really hot.
  • When assembling the casserole, ensure all the potatoes are submerged in the soup mixture.

What to Serve with Pork Chop Casserole

This creamy pork chop potato casserole is a filling dish on its own. To make it a complete meal, you can serve it with a side of garlic green beans, a garden salad, a Broccoli Salad, or a simple steamed veggie.

How to Store Pork Chop Casserole

  • To Store: Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
  • To Freeze: I do not suggest freezing this casserole, as the texture is best when made fresh.
  • To Reheat: Reheat in the microwave until warm.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are scalloped potatoes the same as au gratin potatoes?

Boxed scalloped potatoes have a slightly different flavor than boxed au gratin potatoes. Scalloped potatoes do not contain the added cheese flavor whereas the au gratin potatoes do. You can choose your favorite flavor for this recipe; it’s a very simple casserole that you can customize according to your liking.

How long do I sear the pork chops?

Quickly sear the pork chops over high heat before layering them into the casserole. You are not looking to cook the pork chops all the way through, only to give them a beautiful golden exterior. Once in the oven, the pork chops will continue to cook until tender!

Can I prepare my casserole in advance?

You can assemble this casserole (just prior to baking) up to 24 hours ahead and cover it tightly with a piece of aluminum foil. You will need to store it in the refrigerator, and when ready to bake, allow the casserole to sit on the counter to come to room temperature. If you place a really cold dish into a hot oven, you risk the dish breaking or warping. This also ensures that the casserole bakes up evenly.
