This was a little din din I whipped up the other night, and as you all know, I seriously just throw stuff together, with no measuring, just whatever. I think it’s how I was raised, watching my mom add a little of this, a little of that, understanding what seasonings compliment each other, and what don’t. So, I roll with it. And anything that is a homemade meal for my family amidst our chaotic evenings with homework, sports, and events and meetings I tend to, easy is KEY. Seriously, they are NOT casserole peeps, they are NOT crockpot peeps. So, the meat and potato thing always is a winner in our house.
This little something I threw together combines all the flavors of the traditional Greek foods with the simplicity of the prep.
What you need:
- pork chops, I prefer thick, bone in or boneless your preference
- frozen french fries, unseasoned
- olive oil
- crazy mixed up salt
- garlic powder
- Cavender’s Greek Seasoning
- fresh lemon
The goods are super simple. The 2 main ingredients: pork chops (bone in or out, but thicker ones preferred) and frozen french fries. That’s right. FROZEN French Fries!
I sprayed my pan with non-stick spray, drizzled oil on the chops, and did all these seasonings on them, both sides.
I sprinkled a bit of the oregano and the crazy mixed up salt on the fries, no oil on them needed unless you want them dredged in it, but they are SUPER great without it. Enough oil from the meat will be sufficient to give yummy flavor to the potatoes.
Finish it off with squeezing fresh lemon all over the entire pan. Lemon on the fries are a MUST!
Bake in the oven at 425 for about 40 minutes. The house smells divine and the family can’t wait to get their hands on this….
The fries get golden crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. And they are meant to be eaten with a fork… remember, they’ve gotten all those wonderful flavors from the pork and seasonings all seeped into them. Seriously, one of the most EASY things to do, and you’re family is going to DIE it’s SO stinkin yummy!
You can thank me tomorrow. That is all!
