I want to start this post by saying thank you to my awesome husband!  If you’ve been around my blog much, you may have noticed that pretty much all my pictures include the same plate set.  They’re a blue and brown pattern that match our kitchen.  I love those plates, but now that I have this food blog, I found myself wishing for some variety in my photography.  The plates are just as much a part of the picture as the food.  So for Christmas, the hubs went to an antique shop and bought me some plates, saucers, and a bowl of varying styles and colors!  I LOVE THEM! It’s such a thoughtful and appropriate gift!  I have actually posted a couple of times now with pictures of  my new plates, but I just wanted to give him a shout out for being so thoughtful.


Anyways, now on to the food.  Honestly, this isn’t one of my fave meals.  It was ok, but just nothing spectacular to me.  One issue is that it was REALLY salty.  I may have overdone it with the salt shaker, but the onion soup itself has a salty flavor to it too.  So be careful with how much salt you put in it.  What I did like about this dish is how easy it is to prepare and that it’s a Weight Watchers recipe.

  1. Good husband. I find myself stopping at flea markets and car boot sales to try and get more dishes and bowls. The Wife is very forgiving about some of the tat I have brought into the house.
    Best,
    Conor

  2. I make a similar casserole for us but use Betty Crocker Scalloped Potatoes and pork chops. If you want it to be low fat just use non-fat half and half. Delicious!

  3. We had this for dinner tonight with some slight variations, based on what was available in our home. 1) I had already thawed pork steaks, so we swapped for that. 2) We had Yukon Gold potatoes, not redskins. 3) Based on your expressed concern about being too salty, I did not salt, but I did mix the onion soup mix into the mushroom soup. My family loved it and told me not to lose the recipe! This one Is a keeper!

      • Well, we tried the potatoes as a side dish and they were really good. I used a whole can of mushroom soup and 3 moderately sized potatoes. There was plenty of gravy to spoon over our vegetables, as well. All in all, everyone agreed that this was a tasty enough dish to have again. I have saved the recipe! Hope y’all will try it yourselves!

          Thanks for the review! Glad it worked well as a side dish. I think we might try it that way in the future, too!

  4. Cook your chops first!!! In fact, next time I will gently boil my sliced potatoes while I’m cooking the chops. Even with thinly sliced potatoes I had to add 30 minutes to the called for cook time. Think with those 2 adjustments, this will be very tender in 50-60 minutes. Was very tasty once it was done when I had only precooked chops, then added time to get potatoes done!!! Looking forward to trying this with cooking potatoes first too

      You can certainly double the recipe! And I think it would be delicious to brown the chops first. The only issue I think would be that you’d have the chops get done well before the potatoes in the oven. If you try it, let us know how it turns out!
