I am looking for a recipe that I made years ago for some kind of baked pork chops. 
I remember putting a chop in a casserole,then adding layers of different things 
like a lemon slice, maybe a spoon full of ketchup, I'm not sure! Kind of seems 
maybe also a bit of brown sugar! After all the layers were on you baked them 
and they were so very tender and delicious!
Thank you! Marie

Hello Marie,

See below.


Lemon Baked Pork Chops

4 pork chops, boneless
1 lemon
4 tsp. brown sugar
1 onion
4 tsp. ketchup

Arrange pork chops in shallow baking dish. On each pork chop put one slice of lemon (rind on), 
one slice of onion, 1 teaspoon brown sugar and top with ketchup. Bake, at 375°F for 45 to 55 minutes, 
or until meat is fully cooked. If your pork chops are very thin, you can cover with foil for 30 minutes; 
then remove the foil to finish cooking.

Serve with lemon.

Hi Phaedrus,

Hope you are having a good summer.  Some additional information on the request for "lemon pork chops".  It sounded so familiar.

From : Betty Crocker's All Time Favorites: the best recipes by popular demand published 1971

Pork Chops Supreme

2 tablespoons shortening
6 pork loin or rib chops,  1/4 to 1 inch thick
salt and pepper
6 thin onion slices
6 thin lemon slices
6 tablespoons brown sugar
6 tablespoons catsup

Melt shortening in a large skillet and brown chops over medium heat. Season chops with salt and pepper and 
place them in a shallow baking pan or baking dish. Top each chop with an onion slice, a lemon slice, 
1 tablespoon of brown sugar, and 1 tablespoon of catsup.

Cover and cook in a 350°F oven 30 minutes.  Uncover and cook until done, about 30 minutes longer---basting 
the chops occasionally.  

Variation:  Party Pork Chops:  use 1 1/2-2" chops.  Cover and cook 1 hour.  Uncover and, basting the chops 
occasionally, cook until done, 30 minutes longer.
I've used this recipe for years and it is very good.  The lean chops of today are fork tender.  And I omit 
the browning first step [and thus the shortening] by just placing all items in a baking dish.  
I have even done this in the crock pot.

I love wedding cake, & Swiss Confectionary in New Orleans has by far the 
most incredible almond cake I have ever tasted.  Any chance you can find 
that recipe.?.

Hello Mike,

Sorry, no success with the recipe from Swiss Confectionary. Someone who has tried both says that the recipe on this site is the closest to it that they've ever found: Wedding Cake
