A Light and Flavorful Potato Side Dish!

Now that summer is right around the corner, I want to start eating lighter meals, as in lower in fat! This potato recipe tastes very rich, but it's very low fat! I serve this instead of mashed potatoes because it's much easier and tastier! Plus this can be put together a few hours ahead of time, then baked when needed!
These are paper thin sliced potatoes in a
 creamy green onion cheese sauce.
Baked until tender. Made with low fat ingredients. This is an easy potato side dish with lots of creamy, cheesy flavor! Perfect with any meat main dish...chicken, beef, pork and even fish!
