Recipe by Goodies from Grandm

Here's another recipe passed down from my mother and I've passed on to my daughters and daughter-in-law. We love it because it not only tastes good but it is an entire meal in one dish - AMEN! Enjoy!

This worked well as a tag-team dish for dinner. I assembled the dish in the morning and DH put it in the oven in the evening - what could be simpler. It was so nice to walk in to a hot, home cooked meal rather than with a bag of burgers on a busy weeknight. DH and I especially liked the crust the cheese made on top of the chops. Next time I will slice the potatoes rather than quarter them so that they cook a bit more and absorb more of the yummy sauce. Also, I will salt and pepper the potatoes before covering them with the meat and will use chicken broth rather than water. Thanks Goodies from Grandma's!
