  • 100g hard cheese, grated (we used cheddar)
  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 3 tbsp milk



    One of the most widely used ingredients, milk is often referred to as a 'complete' food…


  1. Heat oven to 230C/fan 210C/gas 8. In a large bowl toss the potatoes, onion, liquid and oil together. Season if you like. Tip the onion and potatoes into a large sauté pan and bake for 20-30 mins until the potatoes start to brown. Lay the chops on the potatoes and cook for 10 mins more.

  2. While the potatoes are cooking, mix the cheese, mustard and milk together. When the chops have had 10 mins, spread the cheese mixture over them and switch the oven over to grill. Place the pan under the grill and cook for about 5 mins until the cheese is bubbling and the potatoes are golden and crispy. Serve straight from the pan.

I cooked the potatoes with some garlic cloves and white wine the whole house smelled divine! Used soft cheese instead so the sauce became too runny and it didn't stay on the pork but was delicious.

Absolutely delicious, used red wine vinegar and a splash of Worcester Sauce. Make sure you serve up all the the sauce from the bottom of the pan it is rich and loaded with flavour

Read the comments before making this and thought it would be very yummy but I'm totally disappointed. Thought it was very bland, I don't like pork at the best of times but thought i would try something different. Still don't like pork!

This is fab. Next time I may just add a dash of cream into the pan juices to makes a bit of throw over sauce for the spuds and onions as there was quite a lot of them.

My Word! what an easy an tasty recipe! Cooked it tonight, slightly thicker slices of potato so cooked for longer, put the onions in later so they didn't burn, everyone loved it, totally clean plates!!

Sorry - but the potatoes do not cook through. Even if you slice them thinly with a machine - 40 min is not enough time. The potatoes at the top cook, but the rest stick together and do not cook. Yes - I stirred them. Yes - I know what I am doing. Chops were ok. Students might be ok with this - we were not.
