This calorie-trimmed favorite saves 200 calories per serving. For the creamiest results, be sure to use red potatoes. White potatoes have a drier texture and tend to sock up the sauce during baking. For the cheesiest flavor use reduced-fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. 114 Calories a Serving! Adapted from the New Dieter’s Cookbook from Better Homes and Gardens.

Great! I omitted the salt and included the optional reduced fat Parmesan cheese. It was warm and delicious! Thanks for sharing.
This was very good. I will admit that I used regular milk and cheese so no low cal for me, but it turned out really tasty. I used 2 gloves of garlic, minced instead of the powder, a little extra cheese and the seasoned salt, other than that made as directed. Thanks Cheryl
SOOOOOO good! I made this using full-fat cheese and whole milk, used green onions and some Parmesan cheese beteween the layers, another great recipe Cheryl! thanks Kitten:)
