Pork Chops En Casserole (1941)

Susan Feliciano


I'm finding lots of new-old recipes in my 1941 edition of The New American Cookbook. So many of them remind me of the meals my mother served. Although she didn't become a homemaker until the mid-1950's, I think she learned from her older sisters, mother, and mother-in-law who were cooking through the Great Depression and World War II.
This recipe is almost identical to one she used to serve. Sometimes she would substitute smoked sausage for the pork chops.
