Just made this for lunch but i added chopped clove garlic to the potatoes when roasting, as suggested only added the onion halfway through the cooking of the potatoes. I added some cream to the milk and added more cheese and extra mustard to the mix and was really lovely..i fried the pork chops in the pan for a few mins on either side before adding them to the potato dish..Def you would need hot oven temp as suggested..was very nice dish and will definetly be cooking it again soon...Well worth trying this recipe....

The pork chops were tender and moist. Enjoyed by the whole family and my son who doesnt usually like pork chops really loved this meal and has asked for them again. Very easy to cook and very tasty.

Sorry but did not like this at all. Not sure what went wrong but i cooked the potatoes as told, in fact 5 minutes longer, and continued with the recipe. When cooked the potatoes were raw and the pork was pale and not tasty. I love all the ingredients so was really looking forward to it!! I cook bloody harder meals than this and cant see what went wrong? Maybe ill try again another time.

Just made this for lunch but I used filleted chicken breasts instead of pork and it was lovely. Will try the pork another day!

really quick, tasty and easy, try it with grated eating apple on the chops first then top with the mustard and chees mixture using a strongish cheddar

Great recipe. A different way to eat pork. Really enjoyed this dish, really easy too. Give it a go!

The family really enjoyed this dish - very easy to make and minimal washing up - always a bonus.

I added some chunks of carrot with the potato and onion, really tasty and added a bit of colour to the dish.

This was really tasty, extremely easy and I'll definately do them again. Also good for a one pot meal for a student by using smaller quantities.

Didn't finish in the grill just returned to the oven, fabulous result though :-)

Easy & Yummy! The onions were a little overcooked and blackened by putting them for as long as the potatoes, but that is easily rectified. I will definitely make again!

This was really tasty and easy to make. The mustard gave it a nice kick. I didnt do mine in the oven, i cooked the pork chops under the grill then put them on the hob with the spuds and just finished it all off back under the grill. It was much quicker!

This is a simple easy dish to make and makes pork chops or pork steaks more interesting. Try it, it's tasty.

This is one of the easiest recipes I have made. Although recommended for students I often make if for my family in the evening. Added bonus of not much washing up!! Worth a try!
