Pork Chop Casserole

Today's post is dedicated to the best Step-Mom this 15 year old girl could of asked for, Margie Tonsager-Taylor. She taught me the real meaning of "comfort" food, and passed away in her sleep yesterday morning after a long and happy life! I will see you on the other side, along with my dad!

I have been making this pork chop and stuffing casserole since early in my marriage, it is quick, easy and very tasty. To me it is comfort food, and my husband loves gnawing on the pork bones.
  • 2-4 bone in pork chops
  • 1 box of Stove Top Stuffing Mix
  • 2-3 mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup (or whatever kind you like)
Preheat your non stick skillet to high, season your chops with salt and pepper to taste

Put 1 tbl of oil into your pan and sear the chops on both sides

Place the chops into a greased baking dish, in the meantime place your stuffing into a bowl and add the butter and boiling hot water, per the package directions. Mix well and place into your baking dish next to or on top of the chops

Using the same bowl as the stuffing, now add the can of soup, then 3/4 of a can of water, mix well, (you can add other spices or chives at this point), and pour over the stuffing and pork chops. Layer on your mushrooms last.


Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes
