Clean Out the Pantry Day 2: French Onion Pork Chop Skillet

Last night's dinner was one of my husband's favorite. I found the recipe in a Kraft Foods magazine shortly after we got married and it's been a semi- regular feature on our menu since then. We haven't had it for a while so my husband was excited to see it finishing up on the stove when he got home.

You can find the original recipe here. The only modifications I made were to use one pound of pork chops instead of 1.5 and I used 2% shredded cheddar cheese instead of part-skim mozzarella.

I swear there really are pork chops in there, under the onions.
I didn't have to buy a single thing for this meal. Even more exciting was that this dish used up my last box of stashed Stove Top stuffing. I don't really know how I amassed so much of that stuff, but at one point I had about 10 boxes on the lazy Susan. Either there was one heck of a sale or I had some mad coupons. Or both. :)

On the side, we had salads made from our fridge stash of lettuce, tomatoes from our garden and croutons from the pantry.


  1. Thanks for sharing the recipe - this sounds really good! I love Stove Top. My mom and I were just talking about this the other day, and she was telling my grandma that she has tried making dressing several times but my brother and I always prefer the boxed stuff. Guess I can never be a true foodie lol

  2. OMG Katie this looks delicious! I might just have to try it.
