I was browsing through all my archived photos for an inspiration for dinner tonight, and came across one of my “throw-together” meals I made a few months ago. I did take a few photos of it at the time, but never wrote the recipe down anywhere that I could find. I was not inspired to make it either, since I don’t have any pork chops in the house at the time. However, I thought I would try to at least share how I remember making this with you. This recipe is for three, divide or multiply how you see fit.
Pork Chop Spinach Casserole Surprise
3 pork chops
Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb
Mrs. Dash Table Blend
3-4 cups of frozen hash brown potatoes
1/2 onion, chopped
1 recipe cream of chicken or mushroom soup, or 1 can. Recipe here: http://bit.ly/AnHON3
Fresh spinach, torn
Several mushrooms, diced
Mozzarella cheese, grated
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Season the pork chops and set aside. Heat a skillet to medium-high heat and put a few swirls of olive oil in it. Add the pork chops and sear on both sides for a few minutes until browned, and set aside again. Mix the hash browns and onions with about half the cream soup, and more pepper. Lightly oil a casserole dish, and add the hash brown mixture to the bottom. Layer the spinach and mushrooms over the hash browns. Place the pork chops on top, and spread the rest of the cream soup over them. Add the grated cheese last. Bake uncovered for about 45 minutes, until the pork chops are done. The surprise in the recipe is that we all really enjoyed this cobbled-together meal!
