Pork Chops O'Brien

This dish is great for cold weather, but I just felt like making it - especially since it hadn't made it to the blog yet. It's one of those rare recipes where I didn't change anything because it was perfect as is.

O'Brien hash browns are diced potatoes with onions and peppers mixed in. You can always use regular diced hash browns if you prefer. Just make sure they are thawed out before you use them (don't ask me how I know this).

PORK CHOPS O'BRIEN
from Allrecipes.com

6 pork loin chops, 1/2 inch thick
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 (10.75 oz) can cream of celery soup
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
1 (2.8 oz) can french fried onions, divided
1 (28 oz) package frozen O'Brien hash browns, thawed
seasoned salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a skillet over medium-high heat, brown pork chops in oil. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine soup, milk, sour cream, pepper, 1/2 cup cheese, and 1/2 cup french fried onions. Fold in hash browns. Spread potato mixture into a lightly greased 9x13 baking dish. Place chops on top and sprinkle with seasoned salt. Cover and bake for 40-45 minutes or until chops are tender. Uncover; sprinkle with remaining cheese and onions. Return to oven for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

I love this recipe too, and I'm so glad you guys have tried it and enjoyed it. I usually serve it with steamed green beans and a green salad, but you can serve it with whatever veggie floats your boat. :)
