We took traditional scalloped potatoes and made them extra tasty in this potato recipe with a velvety cheese sauce made from Carnation Evaporated Lowfat 2% Milk, plus lowfat cheese and turkey bacon. These potatoes are so rich and creamy you will never miss the fat!

    Tasty

    Patricia Morales from Largo, FL

    I made this using only have the bacon and also baked it in the oven, I didn't notice prior to assembeling it that it needed to go in the microwave, nor would I have felt comfortable cooking it that way either. Tasted great and was nice and bubbly!

    scalloped potatoes/reg. bacon

    Al Ewaldt from MARINETTE, WI

    This is indeed easy and quick. The taste was great-but I must admit I used regular bacon. I will do this again and more than once.I agree it could use just a little more seasoning.

    Cheddar Bacon Scalloped Potatoes

    Jennifer Young from Somersworth, NH

    These were incredible! I am not a huge onion lover so I just omitted them and added extra bacon and cheese. Even my picky 12 year old loved them. They go great with steak and veggies. Since these were super simple to make I can make them on short notice which is always a bonus. These would even be good for breakfast!

    Just a great and quick casserole

    Christina Johnston from Home, Pa

    I loved this, did not have green onions so substituted onions sliced thin.

    yummmmmm-o

    Rachelle Damron from Santa Nella ca

    My family loved this almost too much. I cook low carb 99.9% of the time, but I splurged tonight. My family said they wanted this once a week.. :) The only thing I did different was use regular bacon and pepper jack instead of cheddar. yummy

    I made the scalloped potatoes over the weekend to go with Pork Chops. I liked them, however, I thought it could have used a little more seasoning. I definitly will make again as it was very good (it also tasted better the next day when I ate leftovers for lunch).
