My Favorite Birthday Meal...

Next to pizza, my favorite meal is Pork Chops & Scalloped Potatoes. I made it for my birthday lunch today.
Here's the recipe...
~5 or 6 medium to large potatoes
~6 pork chops

White Sauce:
1/4 c flour
1/4 c butter
3 c milk
1 1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1 small onion, chopped finely

Make white sauce as follows...melt butter over low heat, then add in the flour, stirring to smooth consistency. Slowly add milk, stirring as you pour. Add salt, pepper & onion. Heat until it starts to thicken just a bit.

Peel and slice potatoes.

Brown (season with salt & pepper) pork chops in an electric skillet at 375 degrees. Reduce heat to 225-250 degrees. Drain off any grease from the pork chops.

Place a layer of potatoes over pork chops, season with salt & pepper and pour ~1/3 of white sauce over the top. Repeat twice more. Cover & cook for 45-60 minutes...until potatoes are tender.

Here it is, all put together...

Here it is...all done! YUMMY!!!

As yummy as this is, the leftover scalloped potatoes are something I look forward to, also! I slice weiners (Mom used to cut 13 slices out of one weiner!!????) and heat them up in the same pan as the potatoes. Ohboy...too yummy!!!
