Colin’s Pork-chop Casserole

Colin was at it again!

Creating an awesome recipe that is. I seriously love this man.

I was busy working on revamping my resume and sorting out what I want to do with my life….that’s right! I wasn’t creeping blogs – shocking I know :) More news about me and my lifestyle changes later on.

Colin decided to take it upon himself to make Sunday’s dinner (which is our big dinner night, mainly so he has left overs he can take for lunches…..hence our love of casseroles)

So without further ado, here’s Colin telling you how to make Pork-chop Casserole:

ingredients:

  • 4 – 6 boneless pork-chops (I did 7)
  • 4 cups diced potatoes (skins on)
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 1 can cream of celery soup (don’t worry no mushrooms this time)
  • 1 cup milk
  • salt & pepper
  • 1-2 cups grated cheddar (or cheese of your choice)
directions:
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 375F
  2. wash and chop potatoes keeping the skins on.

2. dice the onions.

3. put the potatoes in an un-greased casserole dish and sprinkle the onions overtop.

4. Combine milk, cream of celery soup and salt and pepper (to taste) in a microwaveable safe bowl and heat in 1 min intervals until mixture is a nice consistency or you can do this on the stove top in a pot

5. Grate cheddar cheese and sprinkle half over the potatoes and onions.

6. In a large frying pan brown the pork-chops on each side for a minute or two and place them in the casserole dish on top of onions, cheese and potatoes.

7. Pour the milk/soup mixture over top of everything. (Ali’s edit – smile like you mean it)

8. Sprinkle remaining cheese over entire dish and throw in the oven for 1 hr.

9. Take it out and eat it.

Enjoy.

Colin has no interest in blogging so everyone should congratulate him on doing this all by himself and writing out this recipe. I know you are all going to prefer his versions (short and sweet) over mine (long and over-done) but just remember, I’m really the best!

Colin has no questions. 

but I think he sometimes wonders why he’s with me 😉

  1. Crazy!! This is really similar to Jason’s pork chop casserole recipe… like almost identical. The only difference is that we put those french’s fried onions on the top (I know totally not healthy) and Jason doesn’t make it… it’s his recipe and one of his all time favorites, but unless he’s doing mac and cheese for my bday, we keep him out of the kitchen. haha! :)

    Great job, Colin! And I can’t wait to find out more about possible new jobs on the horizon for you?! Exciting! :)

    • that actually sounds even better Jess!!!! I would love fried onions to be on top of this YUM! and Jess, we don’t really eat healthy. and ya, it’s a slow process but at least I’m finally being proactive about getting out of retail.

  2. Colin is a gem. A man that cooks is hard to find – I live with four of them and there’s rarely anything but oestrogen in the kitchen.

    Well done Colin. You’re a man among men.

  3. Casseroles are becoming my favorites too for the same reason. It’s too hard to find time to make a proper meal every day and can be expensive too! This one I intend to make.
    And when you figure out “What you want to do with your life” please share we’re in the same boat…

    • Exactly! so convenient. and please let me know how it turns out :) hahaha well I don’t know exactly what i want to do with my life but I have made great progress through the help of my sister. She made me write out all of my hobbies and then asked me to write out all of my “dream jobs” – and then we compiled my interests with reality and sorted out which options were there….so I will promise to keep you posted. :)

      I know how you feel

      • Stumbled onto your website from pinterest somehow. But do have to say I find you delightful, fun and fresh :) I, too, suffer from “What the hell do I wanna be when I grow up” disorder. Only I am 42 years old this year..lol! So the listing of hobbies and interests and weeding out possible jobs is something I may be doing in the near future! Thanks for all the fun, free info!!

        • Hey Sammi! Thanks for visiting and I’ve recently resigned myself to try and get whatever full-time stable job I can get. As I’m still sending off resumes 😉 lol

          and hopefully I’ll see you around! 😀

  4. Wow. I am dying to try this now. Been looking for an easy pork recipe, this looks like a winner! Now I could only get my dear man to eat leftovers…

    • Ya I think you could totally do a smaller serving size of this. It would just have to have more veggies and less meat and it would be really saucy 😉 which I think is awesome
