Chops and Chips

Bookmark and Share
Just remember I warned you that I'd be returning to my Green Eggs and Ham Cookbook!  I bring you Skipper Zipp's Chops and Chips.

From Oh Say Can You say? :
If you like to eat potato chips
and chew pork chops on clipper ships,
I suggest that you chew
a few chips and a chop
at Skipper Zipp's Clipper Ship Chip Chop Shop

It is really just pork chops and potato wedges but I find that when you add fun names it makes it more fun to cook and to eat.  It seems to entice the kids a bit more as well.  This is a good basic meal that everyone in the family enjoyed.  We rate it 4 spoons.

For a sweet treat at the end I bring you Gertrude McFuzz-y Berries.  Now I know some of you may think that I took perfectly healthy berries and made them unhealthy by dredging them in sugar but let me just say...Yumm!  These are great as is but I also think they'd be great over some vanilla ice cream or on top of a brownie.  The raspberries were my favorite, mmmmmm.

Skipper Zipp's Chops and Chips

4 center-cut pork loin chops, with bone (I used boneless)

4 large potatoes, cut lengthwise into 6 wedges
1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon paprika

1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
2.  Sprinkle half the salt and all the pepper on the chops and put them on a baking sheet.  Set aside.


3.  Put the potatoes on a baking sheet, then sprinkle them with the olive oil and roll them around.  Sprinkle them with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and the paprika.


4.  Put the potatoes in the oven and turn after half an hour.
5.  Put the pork chops i nthe oven when you turn the potatoes.  Cook both until the chops anre juicy and brown about 20-25 minutes, and the potatoes are golden and tender, about half an hour.
