Pork Chop Casserole Recipe

Boneless Pork chops with a creamy cheese and soup layer topped with seasoned bread crumbs and melted butter makes some of the easiest comfort food our family enjoys.

This casserole only takes a few minutes to put together and makes some wonderful comfort food the whole family can enjoy!

As a family that lives and works on a farm, we’re always looking for new recipes to use the products we raise. A few years ago a friend in Nebraska shared a family recipe for Pork Chop & Stuffing Casserole. It’s delicious, but homemade stuffing takes some time to make. I love how this recipe features a quick semi-homemade layer of dressing on top of the pork chops and cheese.

When another farming family in western Ohio shared this casserole recipe with me several years ago I knew it was a keeper. This is actually the best pork chop casserole recipe I’ve ever eaten. This casserole can be assembled in ten minutes and bakes in 45 minutes of less.

We love casseroles, from our Smoked Sausage and Cheesy Potato Casserole to Everything Bagel and Sausage Casserole or Bacon Breakfast Casserole pork certainly adds a great flavor to an easy family meal!

Pork is a Good Source of Protein

I love cooking with pork for many reasons, primarily the flavor is excellent. I also appreciate that pork is packed with protein and other key nutrients!

My son is a cross country runner and as a first time competitive racer we know how important getting the right balance of healthy foods including protein is in the diet. When his body is fed a variety of nutrients it helps him perform at his best!

According to USDA guidelines 8 cuts of pork meat the “lean” guidelines. The word loin often means lean, and this recipe uses pork loin chops. Check out the nutrition facts at Pork.org to learn more about how lean pork fits into a healthy diet.

I’m excited that I’ve gotten to work with Wisconsin Pork in the past to create other protein-packed recipes including Instant Pot Sausage & Sauerkraut, Instant Pot Sausage, Peppers and Onions, and Italian BLT Subs.

As I’ve shared before I’m proud to have grown up living and working on a family farm. Rather you buy pork from a local butcher shop or a chain grocery store you are still supporting farm families like mine as well as farm families in Wisconsin and the rest of the United States. So thank you for cooking with pork!

How to Save Money on this Recipe

Often when you take a pork loin up to the meat counter the butcher will cut it as you request. I like to take the loin home to cut myself because the packaging it comes in will likely last a week or two in the refrigerator (check the use by date to be sure).

When I’m ready to make the casserole I cut the pork loin up myself and use the leftover pieces to grill using our Farmhouse Meat Marinade (soy based sauce) or 2 Ingredient Pork Chop Marinade.

Finding a pork loin on sale is a very cost-effective way to feed my family nutrient-dense food that is packed with protein and so many other important vitamins and minerals.

If regular pork chops aren’t available in the meat case sirloin chop or boneless country style ribs will also work in this recipe.

When is the Casserole Done?

When a digital meat thermometer is inserted in the center of pork chops and reads 145°F they are done cooking and safe to eat! However, the other ingredients in the casserole may not be done cooking.

1″ thick pork chops typically reach a safe internal temperature of 145°F around the 30-minute mark. The cheese may not be melted and the stuffing may not be browned, so I cook the casserole another 10 – 15 minutes.

As long as there is space in the baking dish, pork chops that are thicker than 1 inch can be used as they may still have a blush of pink after 45 minutes of baking. As always use a digital meat thermometer to check doneness and avoid drying out the pork chops.

I’ve shared in my Farmhouse Pork Chop Marinade and Oven Baked Pork Chops, properly cooked pork is a BIG deal in our house. A blush of pink in the center of a pork chop is absolutely safe to eat. I really recommend investing in a digital meat thermometer to enable getting an accurate reading.

Can Leftover Pork Chops Be Used in This Casserole?

Leftover pork chops that have already been cooked would not work well in this casserole. Make a box of stove top stuffing and serve reheated pork chops with stuffing on the side as opposed to baked in a casserole.

Ingredients Needed:

  • 1″ or thicker raw pork chops
  • Swiss cheese
  • Cream of chicken soup
  • White wine
  • Herb seasoned stuffing
  • Butter

How To Make a Pork Chop Casserole

  1. Grease a baking dish and preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Arrange pork chops in the bottom of the dish and then cover with a layer of cheese.
  3. Mix together cream of chicken soup and white wine or white grape juice. Pour over cheese layer.
  4. Sprinkle the stuffing over top of the creamy layer. Then melt butter and pour as evenly as possible over the stuffing.
  5. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 10 – 15 minutes until the stuffing is lightly browned on top. Serve warm and enjoy!

Tips for Making Pork Chop Casserole

  • Recipe can be doubled to fit in a 9 x 13 inch baking pan
  • Use a wine that you enjoy as the flavor will enhance the dish, we prefer a sweeter white wine
  • White wine can be substituted for white grape juice to make a pork chop casserole that does not use alcohol
  • I typically use a bag of Pepperidge Farm “Herb seasoned classic stuffing” and I prefer the smaller pieces over the cubes
  • We tested this recipe with cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soup, we love mushrooms but found that we strongly prefer the smooth cream of chicken soup flavors with the other ingredients in this dish
  • Cream of celery soup would also work well in this recipe
  • Save money by purchasing a boneless pork loin and slicing the chops yourself
  • Pork tenderloin or pork chops from the rib end (has more dark meat) will be more tender and can be used in this recipe
  • Swiss cheese can be substituted for mozzarella or another white cheese if desired, we find that white cheese pairs better with the wine than a cheddar cheese 
  • French fried onions make also be sprinkled on top for an extra layer of yum

How to Make Easy Pork Chop Casserole

Lightly grease a square baking dish for a single recipe or a 9 x 13 baking dish for a double recipe.

Arrange pork chops in a single layer in the bottom of the baking dish. Season with salt and pepper if desired.

This recipe works best when almost all of the bottom of the pan is covered in pork chops.

Ingredients to make pork chop casserole with stuffing

Arrange slices of Swiss cheese evenly over pork chops. Some slices will overlap and that’s fine.

Then melt butter and pour as evenly as possible over top of stuffing. Using a bowl or measuring cup with a spout can make pouring the butter easier.

When I end up with a little extra in the center I use a spoon to spread it out as evenly as possible.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake in a 350°F oven for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue to bake for an additional 10 – 15 minutes until the stuffing browns on top.

Refrigerate leftovers. This casserole reheats well for up to 3 days, but tastes best within the first day or two after being baked.

    I had all the ingredients on hand the day this was posted, so I tried it out. My husband and I both loved it, and he is enjoying the leftovers of it just as much! It’s a great meal to make quickly with items I typically have on hand.

      Thanks so much for giving this a try and sharing your great results! So glad you all enjoy this recipe 🙂

  4. Do i cook stuffing mox first or not?

    1. Jennifer @ Plowing Through Life says:

      Great question! You do not cook the stuffing before using it in the casserole. Hope you enjoy this recipe!

  5. 5 stars
    We make a similar version to this with chicken, but I had pork chops on hand. It was delicious

  6. I’ve looked at all the stores for Pepperidge Farm stuffing….I always use it at Thanksgiving and Christmas, and found it last month close to Easter at Walmart, but now no one has it…….they say it’s a seasonal item. Would Stovetop stuffing work? It’s not as good as Pepperidge Farm IMHO but I have a pork loin to cut up into boneless chops and all the other ingredients to make this. It sounds so good!

      Hey There! Sorry to hear it’s hard to find! I do think other similar alternatives would work just fine. Hope you enjoy 🙂
