Scrumptious Saturday!!!!

Well in the new trend of fellow bloggers, I am going to start posting a recipe I like once a week. Everyone has cute names for theirs and do them on various days of the week so I think I will do mine on Saturday!! And the first recipe that I am posting was really scrumptious hence the name of today's blog!

I am always looking for new recipes and ideas for cooking some of the staples we have in the house. We like alot of pork chops, hamburger meat and various other types of meats. This week I made pork chops in the oven and was having a hard time finding a new way to cook the chops. The following is what I came up with!!

Baked Pork Chops Garrett Style!
8 pork chops (we used a package of assorted chops so different sizes were in the pkg)
Season salt (or whatever spices and seasonings u like...we used a garlic, onion combo by McCormicks)
3 onions (I ended up using 2 large sweet vidalia)
1/2 cup of water (the recipe called for 1/4 but with the size of my chops 1/2 worked better)

Preheat oven to 400.....Season the chops on both sides, place in glass baking dish or dishes (make sure they are not overlapping so they cook evenly) and add water. Cut the onions into slices and place on top of the chops (we pulled the rings apart but either way works). Cover the dish with aluminum foil and place in oven. Cook at 400 for 1hr and then turn down to 300degrees and cook for 30 minutes. The onions will soak up the flavoring of the pork chops and should melt in your mouth.

All I can say is YUMMMMY!!! The pork chops fell apart when I tried to pick them up out of the pan. The onions were still sweet plus with the seasoning they turned out really awesome. It was a hit with the family...If you dont like onions, you wont like this one possibly but even my little 4yr old DEVOURED 2 of them!!!!

We served fresh veggies (cucumber slices and tomatoes) and wild grain rice with ours and the whole meal was awesome...It was easy prep and easy cleanup!! Perfect thing to put together maybe the night before that way all u need to do is throw it in the oven when u get home from work!

Hope u and ur family enjoy!! More to post about tomorrow!! Night!
