There is a thought that when you make dishes that are low in fat, you’re giving up on the flavor. For this dish, I wanted the same amazing taste but with fewer calories. I came across Swanson’s Low Fat Cream Starter and when using it in my recipe, I was able the dish the flavor I wanted and it was lower in calories than the original version I’ve made! Plus, it helps that Swanson’s TM is well seasoned, so you do not even have to deal with any additional seasonings.

Now, I think the secret to making homemade scalloped potatoes is slicing the potatoes very thin. I like to use a mandolin to get my potatoes nice and thin. You can use a good sharp knife, both will do. I think lightly seasoning the layers with a sprinkle of salt and freshly ground black pepper makes these even better.

    I am a sucker for scalloped potatoes, and I definitely appreciate a lower fat version. I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled for that starter.
