Mushroom Scalloped Potatoes

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.


  • 4 cups thinly sliced red potatoes, peel on
  • 6 medium portabella mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 can Cream of Mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup evaporated skim milk
  • 4 oz. 2% cheddar cheese, grated
  • sea salt, to taste
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • paprika, to taste
