Directions

Step 1 –Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Step 2 –Preheat a large skillet over high heat and add the oil.

Step 3 –Season both sides of the pork chops with the salt, the pepper, and the garlic powder.

Step 6 –Stir the hash browns and the onion into the sour cream mixture.

Step 7 –Spread the hash brown-sour cream mixture into a 9×13-inch baking dish and sprinkle it with the cheddar cheese.

Step 8 –Top the bake with the pork chops.
