And that makes this recipe perfect for weeknight dinners when you don’t have a lot of time for cooking. Cleanup is also pretty easy, depending which mac & cheese recipe you go with and how you make your salad.

The chops are familiar comfort food with just one tiny twist (the french onion), so it’s plain enough for people who don’t like exotic food, but interesting enough for those who do. And of course there’s nothing more comforting than mac and cheese.

Pick one of our easy homemade mac and cheese recipes (or try an Instapot mac and cheese) and round this dinner out with something green. Keep it simple – just steam or boil some green beans, broccoli, or asparagus however you like them. Or do a salad of mixed dark greens.

  • 4 pork chops

  2. Add the can of French Onion soup and garlic powder and continue to cook for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove the pork chops and put them aside for now.
  4. Put the mushrooms in the skillet.
  5. Mix your tablespoon of flour in your cup of water thoroughly, then slowly add it to the skillet, stirring everything together.
