I found this in a magazine, and plan to try it real soon-it looks so easy and tasty.

Yum yum yum... I swear I will never make another potato bake again! The cheese is strong enough to make it unique tasting, but non-blue cheese eaters will never notice. I topped with normal low fat cheddar 10 minutes before it was finished and it was delicious. I also used normal onions, and did layers instead of combining in a bowl. The thyme was a nice touch, use lots of pepper! Thanks!
