Takeout pizza always goes down well and I think me and Ellen might be having that Friday night to start our little holiday break

I hope your tummy is feeling better now MM?

That looks delicious VB So colourful as well. I'm intrigued to know what the coating is for the pork as well.

Yes, that is cream of mushroom soup. I think it gets a bad rap, because I hear of so many people that can't stand to use it. My family always has used it for various dishes. I don't know. Being from a small town, you use what you can afford. That was the case for many years, and I like the taste of it. Mark's Mom used it all the time in recipes.

I made my own breadcrumbs (Mark didn't like the cornmeal coating from the previous night) out of a couple leftover hamburg rolls, by toasting them in the oven. When they were perfectly toasted, I made the crumbs and added garlic/onion powder, basil, parmesan cheese and salt. The pork chops were coated in beaten egg, then the crumb mixture. I skillet-browned them in butter. The browned pork was then baked in a small, greased Pyrex casserole dish with the soup (thinned a little with milk) spread over top.

The potatoes were peeled, red potatoes. I tossed them (and a handful of baby carrots) with canola oil, salt and garlic powder. They went in the oven about 20 min before the pork... everything came out great!

I should make my own breadcrumbs more often.. it's not that hard. It produces better results than the store-bought crumbs.

i use canned cream of mushroom soup all the time for cooking. i only make homemade soup to eat as soup not for cooking with.

i used to make my own crumbs from stale bread heels and slices. but it was a pain after awhile. i just buy plain crumbs and add my own herbs and spices.
