::Pork Chops O'Brien::

Looking for something easy to prepare but something that is good, hearty, and homemade? This is a great recipe for that; ::Pork Chops O'Brien:: It serves about six people, depending on the size and the amount of pork chops you can fit in the pan. This is a great recipe that blends pan seared pork chops, and a creamy seasoned potato base. A great addition to these is the french fried onions that are used; they add some added crunch and saltiness. I don't think I can ever put enough of them on for Jamyson! The past two Christmas' Jamyson's parents have given us a pig, so we have pork in our freezer all year long; which is so nice! I highly suggest that if you are able to get your hands on fresh pork/beef, that you get it, instead of the store bought stuff; it's SO (and that's an understatement) much better! Enjoy!
::Pork Chops O'Brien::

6 pork chops
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of celery soup
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Shredded cheddar cheese
French fried onions
1 package frozen O'Brien potatoes, thawed
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt

In a skillet over medium-high heat, brown pork chops in oil; set aside. Combine the soup, milk, sour cream, pepper, 1/2 cup cheese and 1/2 cup f.f. onions; fold in potatoes. Spread in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Arrange chops on top; sprinkle with salt.
Cover and bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until pork is tender. Uncover; sprinkle with cheese and f.f. onions. Return to the oven for 5-10 minutes
or until cheese melts.
Fresh chops!


...and the milk...

Sear the chops on each side and I seasoned with some seasoning salt.
