Pork Chops and Scalloped Potatoes

Creamy potatoes with fork tender pork chops. Comfort food really doesn't get better than this.

As a kid my dad made scalloped potatoes with pork chops and it was one of my favorite childhood dishes. The issue I have with his dish is that it is made with canned cream soup. I found this lighter recipe in my Taste of Home Cookbook. It is very close to his without the cream soup. I love to sop up the gravy with a piece of bread.
