This Pork Chop Casserole recipe is an easy weeknight meal. Enjoy the meat and potatoes or add your favorite side dish. We have done both.
My Pork Chop Casserole, like many meat and potato casseroles, has a few main ingredients plus a few seasonings. Options include fresh or canned mushrooms or onions or you could toss in a few pieces of broccoli if you like.
Pork Chops, Potatoes and Cream of Mushroom soup will get this dish on the table for a stick-to-the-ribs yummy delight. Of course you will need the salt and pepper as well.

My Mom made this as my brothers and I were growing up. I have no idea where my mother originally got the recipe. She very well may have made it up. I just don’t know. This has always been an easy go-to recipe for those busy times when a good, hot meal is needed but not much time is available for meal preparation.
When I am cooking for two, I generally use boneless pork chops and prepare two for my hubby and one for myself. With the oven on 350°, supper will be ready in under one hour.
This recipe is easily adjustable for a two or three people or for a crowd. I have updated the recipe to include instructions for making a large casserole with bone-in pork chops.
Deconstruct the casserole and use the leftover Pork Chops to make Pork Chop Sandwiches the next day! Remove the bone and reheat them in a skillet then build some yummy sandwiches with your choice of toppings.
Although cooking from scratch with fresh ingredients is always best and I don’t recommend it, you could use canned potatoes if you don’t have time to prepare fresh one’s. You will probably need to reduce your cooking time but I am not sure how much as I always used fresh potatoes.
Did you know, the skins on the potatoes provide fiber to your diet? Yep, and we do need to find ways to add more fiber to our diets.
How to Make This Pork Chop Casserole with only 3 Ingredients
The original recipe used only 3 ingredients;
- Pork Chops
- Cream of Mushroom soup
When times are hard and money is tight, skip the mushrooms and don’t purchase Smoked Paprika if you don’t have any on hand. Of course we pretty much all have some Salt and Pepper in the kitchen so by all means, season the meat and potatoes.

While going through my mother’s recipe collection, I came across some jokes. This particular one was in a hand typed cookbook which my mother’s best friend, Jean J. made for her friends and family.
I’m guilty, Judge,
I fell apart.
I ground him in the Cuisinart.
That is the last time,
He will say,
“That’s what I had for lunch today.”
