These were VERY good potatoes. But I used Light cottage cheese, Light sour cream, Reduced fat Parmesan cheese and cheddar cheese made from 2% milk.

I changed this recipe by using raw potatoes which I shredded in my food processor and rinsed with water through a colundar. Then I drained the potatoes and mixed with the sauce, and baked covered for 30 minutes, then uncovered for another 30 minutes. My family liked them a lot. Next time I make them, I think I will top with some corn flake crumbs mixed with parmesan cheese for a little crunch. These are a lot like the hash brown and cheese recipe everyone brings to pot lucks, but much lower in fat and calories.

I am not going to rate recipe, just comment, because the problems I had may just be because I'm a relatively new cook... "Until tender" on potatoes did not work for me, I boiled for 25 minutes until I thought they were tender and they turned out more like mashed potatoes when I tried to grate them... ten potatoes was too many, and I ended up only using about seven (that's all that would fit in an 8X8 pan) and it came out like runny mush. Also, I think maybe it should get baked for longer. I followed directions but perhaps I should've used the full ten potatoes and crammed them into the pan, and not boiled them for so long, because I ended up tossing this whole dish. But, like I said, it's probably user error. Everybody else that rated loved them, so when making this recipe, don't make the same mistakes I did.
