Low-Point Ham and Cheese Scalloped Potatoes

Yum


I really thought this would be 15 points per serving with how wonderful it tastes! It always makes me a little nervous to go ahead and eat something so cheesy and delicious before calculating the points. I took the chance after taking it out of the oven because it just looked too darn good to pass up. Lucky for me it was only 5 points per serving; so I didn't even have to feel guilty about sticking my fork back into the huge serving bowl for a few more bites after I (thought) I was finished eating!


Low-Point Ham and Cheese Scalloped Potatoes

Ingredients:

- 6 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
- 12 oz. cooked lean ham, chopped or cubed

- 1, 10 3/4 oz. can condensed cheddar cheese soup, undiluted
- 6 oz. fat-free evaporated milk
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1/4 tsp. onion powder
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder

"If you want to succeed in your life, remember this phrase: The past does not equal the future. Because you failed yesterday; or all day today, or for the last six months, or sixteen years of life, doesn't mean anything. All that matters is: What are you going to do, right now?"
