Scalloped Potatoes


POINTS: 3
MAKES: 12 servings
CRISPY RATING: Very creamy, very cheesey, easy to halve the recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 Lbs Potatoes, peeled and sliced, about 9 cups
  • 4 Cups Skim Milk
  • 2 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 1/4 Tsp White Pepper
  • 1 Fresh Rosemary Sprig
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • 4 Tsp Cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp Water
  • 4 Oz Lowfat Swiss Cheese, shredded
  • 3/4 Cup Bread Crumbs
  • 2 Tbsp Light Butter, melted

1. In a large saucepan, combine potatoes, milk, salt, garlic, pepper, rosemary and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and cook 6-8 minutes or until almost tender. Discard rosemary and bay leaf.

2. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and cold water until smooth; stir into potato mixture. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from heat; gently stir in cheese.

3. Transfer to a 13 X 9 baking dish coated with Pam. Combine bread crumbs and butter; sprinkle over potato mixture. Bake, uncovered at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly and crumbs are golden brown.


MY NOTES AND THOUGHTS:
1. This is an easy one to cut in half and do in an 8x8 if you only want 4 or 6 servings.

2. I use my the 2 mm blade on my food processor to slice the potatoes and really like that thickness.

3. I've also made this in advance up to putting it in my baking dish and then left it in the fridge overnight before baking. I almost think it's better the next day. ;)

4. The original used 1.5 cups of bread crumbs, but I really thought that was too much, and it cuts way down on the calories to use less.
