Cheesy Onion Potato Bake

Nothing accompanies a meal better than a creamy potato bake but the idea of making one goes out the window when trying to lose weight, or does it? Not necessarily!!

This is a version of a potato bake that we make that is very much like the tradition version. Made without using cream it still has all the familiar characteristics - it's rich, creamy and very morish.




Cheesy Onion Potato Bake

Serves: 6
ProPoints per serve: 5

cooking spray
1 kilogram potatoes
1 large brown onion, sliced
120 grams grated reduced fat cheese
1 cup skim milk
2 teaspoons chicken stock powder
1 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
freshly ground black pepper



Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Spray a 20 x 20cm square casserole dish or similar with cooking spray.

Peel potatoes and evenly thinly slice.

Place 1/4 of the potatoes in a layer at the bottom of the baking tray. Cover with 1/3 of the onion slices and then sprinkle with 1/4 of the cheese. Repeat layers of potato, onion and cheese. The last layer should be potato and cheese.

Combine milk, stock powder, parsley and pepper, mixing well. Pour gently and evenly over potato layers.

Cover with foil and bake in oven for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue to cook for another 15 minutes or until cheese is golden and potatoes tender.

Hi Jo,

I love this potato bake. A bit lighter on the calories is a good thing for me right about now. My dad is huge on potatoes so I'll be trying out soon, that is for sure!

Eating this was like eating little bites of heaven! Of course, I couldn't resist making some of my own changes, but I kept the same basic recipe. Yum... thanks for posting this!
