Baked Boneless Pork Chops with Cauliflower Tots
I like quick and easy especially when I've been going all day and the last thing I feel like cooking is dinner. So the less fuss and clean-up needed for the meal the better. I often opt for my Air Fryer Pork Chops but, when I'm in the mood for comfort food, this super easy pork chop bake comes to mind. It's one of my favorite dump and bake recipes.
This easy pork chop casserole recipe is low carb too! Originally the recipe had potatoes on the bottom but I decided to make it a little healthier by subbing in cauliflower tots and using pork loin chops for a healthy, low-fat protein.
OK, I did go a little crazy on the cheese ('cause as you can probably tell I'm a cheese lover from way back) but you can sub low-fat cheese or just put less on for a lower calorie option. This creamy, cheesy pork chop casserole is a real winner!
The trick for juicy pork chops
It's layers of moisture! With the pork chops moistened on the bottom by the cauliflower tots and smothered with cheese and a soup mixture over the top, covered and baked, they stay juicy and come out oh so tender. You'll never have dried-out pork chops with this cheesy pork chop casserole!
