Smothered Pork Chops with Smashed Potatoes

Need a quick meal to get some food in your tummy before the impending sugar rush of the Trick or Treat haul? Yeah, me too. There is a giant bag of mini chocolate goodness that looks like it wont be given out this year due to the crappy weather just calling my name. So before I go all fat kid on that, I figured I should get something remotely healthy in my system.

This weeknight quicky meal comes together with just a few pots and pans and doesn’t disappoint  The addition to cabbage slaw to the smashed potatoes makes for a nice change of pace, and the sauteed onions and mushrooms on top please both members of this household. I call that winning. Now, I have to go hand out some candy (or just turn out the lights and eat it all myself)… Don’t judge.

Have a safe and happy Halloween!




  1. We adore pork chops in this house! And those smashed potatoes look incredible, too!!!

  2. WOW – this looks amazing!!! Love all of those mushrooms!

  3. We do the slaw in the taters thing a lot – such a terrific”all-together” vegetable. I can kind of pretend it’s a bastardized bubble and squeak.

    Beautifully caramelized chops you got there too :)

  4. This looks fantastic! I dig smashed potatoes. They are delicious!

  5. OK, so now it’s, like, 9:30 in the morning and I totally want pork chops. Seriously, that looks so good.

  6. Go ahead and smother me with these!! Beautiful! Now on to candy….

  7. You had me at smothered! And yes, I always need a quick, weeknight meal! I’m getting really sick of the cereal dinners I’ve been having lately!

  8. I had pork chops for lunch today – wish I saw this recipe earlier! I love easy but hearty meals like this!

    Smashed Potatoes! When he was little, that’s what my younger brother thought mashed potatoes were called. And of course, that’s what we called them evermore. ;)
