Farmer's Pork Chops

Just simple home cooking but delicious! My 22-month old dug in! I used a large 10x15 casserole dish -- if using an 9x13, I'd halve the recipe and only use 5-6 pork chops. I also added some cajun/creole seasoning to my white sauce for a little spice.

6 medium potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1 small onion, thinly sliced in half rings
salt and pepper
1 cup flour
9 center cut pork chops, 1/2" thick
2 tbsp vegetable oil

White Sauce;
1 stick butter
1/2 cup flour
2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp black pepper
4 cups milk

Preheat oven to 350. In large casserole dish, layer half the potatoes and half the onion. Season with salt and pepper. Repeat with other half of potatoes and onions and season.

Prepare the white sauce by melting the butter in a large saucepan. Stir in flour, salt, and pepper. Let cook for about a minute. Add the milk slowly, while whisking to blend the flour mixture. Bring to a boil and stir frequently until thickened. Pour sauce over the potatoes and bake for 15 minutes.

While potatoes are cooking, season pork chops with salt and pepper. Dredge in a little flour and lightly brown each side in vegetable oil. Place them over the potatoes, arranging so they all fit. Bake for 35-40 minutes.
