I'm doing Weight Watchers and I'm really missing rich cheesy foods like scalloped potatoes so I developed this dish using fat free and low fat dairy products and it's so good! Hope you like it too!

  1. Boil cubed potatoes for 20 to 25 minutes, until just tender. Drain.
  2. Melt fat-free margarine in a saucepan; saute onion until tender.

This was excellent, I made one substitution. I only had vanilla lowfat yogurt and used that instead. I dont know if it affected the taste but everyone really enjoyed them.

Wow, I was in potato heaven last night. I made these almost exactly as written except for two things: I had a craving for mashed potatoes and somehow didn't realize that this recipe wasn't for mashed. So before putting them in the casserole dish to bake, I mashed them up so that they were chunky mashed potatoes rather than cubed. I also substituted non fat sour cream instead of fat-free yogurt and it turned out really tasty. I can't believe that these are fat free because they taste soooo good. It also makes a ton, so I have a good amount of leftovers. Thanks for a great recipe!

These are tasty and easy to make. The only thing I omitted was the green onion as I didn't have any. This is a keeper.
