These potatoes are so creamy, even with reduced-fat cheese and milk. This is a great side dish to a low-fat meat entree. Just add a green salad to complete the meal!

Very tasty. I liked the lowfat alternative. You really didn't miss the high fat ingredients at all.

My husband and I made it today for Christmas dinner. It was more than fabulous. I too used fat free milk as others did and thought it turned out just fine. I always use no-salt butter. Not too cheesy and greasy just perfect. The onions were a nice touch since the hubby LOVES onion. Two thumbs up!!!!!!

I made this recipe as stated except I used skim milk. The potatoes were still yummy and creamy. Everyone loved the dish and it's a great make-ahead recipe.
