Recipe by MMers

This easy dish has a very nice crunchy topping. We usually serve it with mashed potatoes but baked potatoes work well too.

Sometimes I have trouble with pork chops being dry..well not with this recipe. I scaled back a little on ingredients as I only used 3 pork chops, after removing from oven I drained some liquid before adding the gratin..no problem with the browning..and was rewarded with delicious tender tasty pork chops. Thanks for a great recipe, I will add to my favourite file.
