Recipe: Dijon Thyme Pork with Scalloped Potatoes & Apples

This is one of the Publix Apron's Simple Meals.

I can't say it was super simple, it was a bit more involved then I'm used to but a bit more gourmet like also and well worth the work.

I made a few modifications to the recipe to make it a little cheaper, instead of buying the already ready items I diced things myself.

A nice side with this is steamed Broccoli. Even my 7 yr olds plate was empty so you know this is pretty tasty and how about that I just got everyone veggies and fruit in one meal.

Ingredients
Pork Tenderloin (1 lb) or I used Pork Sirloin Cutlets. (cheaper)
2 cups granny smith apple slices (Approx 2 apples)
1 oz bag fresh thyme
1/4 cup diced red onion
1 1/2 Tbs minced garlic
2oz white cheddar cheese
2 Tbs herb garlic butter (these come as individual sticks)
1 20 oz package of Simply Potatoes homestyle sliced potatoes.
2 Tbs Dijon mustard
1/4 cup dry white wine (I bought a bottle of Arbor Mist Chardonnay and it worked perfectly)
2 & 1/4 cups milk
2 tsp flour

COOKING SEQUENCE
* Prepare potatoes through step 2
* Prepare pork; began to cook pork slices
*Complete potatoes and pork; serve
