These did not end up looking anything like the picture in the original recipe, and because of that I apologized to Kris before even serving them!
But, they were surprisingly really good. I was afraid, based on how the chops looked, that they would be really dry. However, they were very tender and we didn't even need our knives to cut them. I didn't follow the potato recipe exactly, as I just estimated how much stuff I added to the mashed potatoes. And I left out the roasted garlic.
Before tasting them, I made up my mind that I would stick to my normal means of making pork chops - either grilling or baking them. But once I actually had a taste, I changed my mind and I would definitely make these again. Maybe next time, they will come out a little prettier. =)
