Quick, Easy, Cheap Meal – Mushroom Porkchops and Fried Potatoes

In my family, it’s always a good thing to find something that the kids will eat. My kids are extremely picky eaters, and lately aren’t wanting to eat anything. They like mushrooms and potatoes, so I thought I’d make something to suit that.

Mushroom Porkchops and Fried Potatoes

Needed food items:

  • Pork chops (enough for your family)
  • Can of cream of mushroom soup
  • 8 oz of mushrooms (fresh)
  • 6-8 potatoes (baking/russet)
  • seasonings of choice

Easy as pie directions:
Pork chops

  • Place pork chops into a baking dish (I used a glass one).
  • Cover with soup, spreading it around to fully coat
  • Top with sliced mushrooms (as many or as few as you want)
  • Add seasonings of choice (you can add them at any point, but I thought they tasted better on top)
  • Put into a preheated 375-400 degree oven for about 30 minutes (more or less, depending on thickness of the cut of the porkchops and if they’re bone-in or boneless

Potatoes

  • Pour some oil (or whatever you prefer to use to fry the potatoes) into a skillet. I used a 1-1/2″ side skillet to prevent major splashing of the hot oil
  • Toss in the potatoes
  • Add seasonings of choice
  • Use remainder of mushrooms
  • Fry. I set mine at med-high, with a lid, to prevent splattering, and to help it cook more evenly. Took about 20 minutes for all of my potatoes

Serve. Ours served 4 easily, with the ability for seconds. đŸ™‚
