What's for Dinner?

What's for dinner tonight?  One of our families favorite southern meal.

Fried Pork chops, cinnamon apples, hash brown casserole, black eyed peas, mac and cheese and cornbread.

Hash Brown  Au Gratin Casserole 

This is so delicious!  
1 32 oz package of southern style hash browns.  ( I used Simply Potatoes) 
1 16oz sour cream
2 c shredded cheddar cheese
1 10 oz can of cream of mushroom soup
salt pepper to taste 
2 cups Ritz Crackers crushed
1/4 cup butter

Mix first 6 ingredients together. Pour into a lightly greased 9 x 13 baking dish.  Sprinkle Ritz crackers on top and drizzle melted butter on top.  Bake at 325 for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until brown. 

Pork Chops

pork chops ( center cut with the bone in ) 

seasoning ( salt pepper garlic powder and seasoning salt)
Canola oil
Heat 2-3 inches of oil in pan on med high heat.  Season pork chops.  Cook pork chops on both sides til cooked through and brown on outside.  When complete put on plate and cover with foil to rest for 10 minutes before serving.

Cornbread -- I use Jiffy and add a bit of sugar .

The side dishes are easy.

I use Stouffer's Mac and cheese and Fried apples.  I just season the apples with cinnamon and sugar. They all microwave quickly.  I do put the mac and cheese in the oven to brown ... ohh soo good.

Some other favorite side dishes-- Sweet potato casserole , collard greens, fried cabbage, and butter beans and rice.

Enjoy !!!
