Scalloped potatoes are one of those delicious and decadent foods that I never make. It’s that whole real cream thing. It’s hell on a diet. But for Valentine’s Day I decided to be decadent and scalloped potatoes were the order of the day. I started prowling for recipes and stumbled across this one from More Than Burnt Toast. Instead of cream it uses cream of mushroom soup and adds in mushrooms. I could work with lightening that! Since there are only two of us, I halved the recipe, of course and made a few other changes. It works out to 4 servings at 327 calories and 6.8 grams of fat.
