Easy Pork Chops and Rice Bake

As I promised, here is a quick and VERY tasty dish you can make. I got the original recipe here.

What you’ll need:

  • A packet of dried onion soup mix (I used Lipton’s)
  • Pork chops (I used 5 because that is how many came in the package)
  • 1 cup of uncooked rice
  • 3 cups of water

Pre-heat your oven to 350°. In a 9×13 baking dish, pour the water, rice and soup packet, mixing them together. Next, place your pork chops on top. The original tells you to spoon some of the liquid on top of them, but I didn’t find this necessary. When I put my chops in, liquid was already starting to cover them.

Next, cover the whole thing tightly with foil and put in the oven for 40 minutes. Then, uncover and bake for an additional 20 minutes.

Let it cool a bit (the rice UNDER the chops with stay blistering hot for a long time, you’ve been warned), plate up and enjoy!

It’s not the prettiest dish, or even the yummiest, to be honest. But it’s very very tasty and soooo easy to make. I especially love the rice in this dish. I would make this again just to eat the rice once more!

TGF and I like to do breakfast on the weekends. During the week, we are in such a rush to get to work we barely have time to make our coffees, much less breakfast. So, one day on the weekend we will go to our favorite breakfast diner, The Breakfast Club, and enjoy their delicious food stuffs. Sometimes, we’ll make breakfast. Sometimes we make breakfast for dinner. Let’s face it, it is a damn shame that so called “breakfast foods” are limited to one time slot of the day!

Anyway, I found this recipe on The Kitchen Life of a Navy Wife blog, and it just sounded so easy and delicious, we had to try it out!


  • bacon, all cooked up, as much as you like
  • scrambled eggs, the recipe calls for 5 but I think we used 4 out of necessity
  • shredded cheese, we used a mix of cheese (pre-shredded); again, the recipe calls for 1 cup, but in our house we don’t measure the cheese…we just us a lot of it
  • 1 can of crescent rolls

Undo the roll dough and lay it out in a “star” shape. Then, place your bacon around the inner circle of the dough.
