    Family and friends love this and, as another said, it makes a wonderful dish to bring to family and friends who have a new baby, or some other life events and could use a meal now and then. Perfect exactly as written!

    A main dish favorite at our house. Chops are so tender and potatoes are delicious. A great casserole to take to a potluck or a neighbor in need!

    My son requests this all the time. Very easy to throw together.

    Big hit with my husband, who ordinarily finds pork chops bland. I cooked it longer than suggested by about 15 minutes. Chops were very tender and moist. Potatoes were very creamy. I sprinkled the chops VERY liberally with seasoned salt, but otherwise did not alter the ingredients. I had plenty of potatoes left and I think they'll reheat well. They're a bit reminiscent of Cracker Barrel's Hash Brown Casserole.

    This turned out great, but I made some changes. I don't like cream of celery soup, so I used cream of chicken, and I added six strips of cooked and crumbled bacon and some chopped green onions. The bag of hash browns I bought was 30 oz., so I added just a little more sour cream and milk, and also used some more cheese and onion rings. And....I didn't have bone-chops, so used boneless loin chops. This tasted great, but it is pretty rich, so I won't make it very often.

    could also use frozen french fries and a can of cheese soup also good with ham steaks on top like to cover for 1 hr and then uncover for 25 min.

    One of our favorites. As others have done I have gone to the lower fat versions of all the ingredients, it has not lessoned the flavor. We are not fans of the french fried onions so I put onions in the potatoes.

    This is an excellent recipe. We made it this weekend and it was a huge hit. I made as the recipe describes. Next time I will use reduced fat ingredients and hope it tastes the same. We will add this to our supper rotation.

    I make this for my family occasionally and we all really like it. I lighten it up a bit though by using reduced fat soup, fat free sour cream, fat free/reduced fat cheeses and only half of the french-fried onions. It is still very good this way and I don't feel quite so guilty when serving it.

    I've been making this ever since it first appeared in the magazine years ago. It's one of my family's comfort food requests and so easy to make. I've been using ribeye chops since my husband doesn't like bone-in and it turns out great.
