My recipe for Pork Chop Casserole begins with bone-in pork chops seasoned with smoked paprika. Thinly sliced potatoes and mushrooms cook together with the pork chops in the oven for a warm and hearty meal.

Pork Chops, Potatoes, and Cream of Mushroom soup will get this dish on the table for a stick-to-the-ribs yummy delight. Mushrooms and onions are optional.

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 potato and pork chop casserole 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.

Ingredients

Simple ingredients you can find at your grocery store. The printable recipe card includes instructions for making this dish with thin sliced pork chops as well.

  • 6 Bone-in pork chops (average, not really thick)
  • 1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 4-5 medium Red Potatoes, sliced thin
  • 1 carton of fresh sliced mushrooms, rinsed (optional)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbsp. Smoked Paprika

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 to 350°, supper will be ready in under one hour.

This recipe is easily adjustable for 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. 

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400°. Spray a large baking dish with non-stick spray.

Rinse the pork chops and place them into your prepared baking dish. Sprinkle both sides of the pork chops with salt and pepper.

Step 2

Wash the potatoes under running water using a vegetable brush. Then slice the potatoes thin with skins on. Place your thinly sliced potatoes on top of the Pork Chops.

Step 3

Pour the can of soup over top of the potatoes and spread evenly.

Step 4

Place the rinsed, sliced mushrooms around the edges of the dish.

Step 5

Cover with foil and Bake for about 40 minutes. Then remove the foil and continue to bake for another 10 minutes. Pork chop temperature should reach 160°. The potatoes should be tender.

Step 6

Sprinkle with smoked paprika and serve.

How To Cook Pork Chop Casserole with only 3 Ingredients

  1. Pork chops
  2. Sliced thin fresh potatoes
  3. Cream of mushroom soup

Follow the above directions using only the pork chops, potatoes, and cream of mushroom soup. You will want to coat the pork chops with salt and pepper before adding to the baking dish.

Leftover Suggestion

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. 

Substitution for fresh potatoes

Although cooking from scratch with fresh ingredients is always best, you could use canned potatoes if you don’t have time to prepare fresh ones. 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, that 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;

  1. Pork Chops
  2. Potatoes
  3. 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 that my mother’s best friend, Jean J. made for her friends and family.

Guilty Plea

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.”

  1. You can never go wrong with mushroom soup! My grandmother used to make something similar to this, but she used baked potatoes on the bottom, layered the pork chops on top and then smothered with the soup. Can’t wait to give this simpler version a try!

    Coming to you from the Momma Told Me link up 🙂

  2. Cute joke, Shirley! And I love pork chops cooked that way and I leave the skin on my potatoes, too. They are too good to cut away.

    A few days ago my youngest daughter was browsing through one of my old cookbooks and she found a joke and couldn’t stop laughing.

    Your pork chop casserole is perfect for a cold winter night! I’ll be making it soon!

    1. Those old cookbooks provide a lot of entertainment, they are not just for recipes are they? For me, looking at cookbooks is a lot like looking at pictures, I get caught up in it and the next thing you know, hours have passed 🙂
      I hope you enjoy the Pork Chop Casserole. I know we will be enjoying that Mexican Corn Casserole soon 🙂

  3. This sounds great, Shirley, and I was planning on making pork chops tomorrow. I may have to change the recipe! Love the joke too. 🙂

    1. I hope you give the recipe a try, Dee. Let me know how you family liked it! I love using recipes which allow room to make changes, I’d love to hear how you make yours.

We enjoying hearing from you!
