Potatoes Au Gratin

Potatoes Au Gratin - Skinny Version!!!
Weight Watchers 3 Pts (Low-Fat)
I'm a sucker for potatoes au gratin, and I feel guilty every time I eat it...but it's SO DARN GOOD!!!  So, after digging through some weight watchers recipes, I came across this one and decided to try it...and it's even better than the fatty version...
(Serves 8 - 3 points)

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1-2 tablespoon flour
  • 2 cups nonfat milk
  • 2 lbs potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded low-fat cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Coat a 2-quart baking dish with cooking spray.
  3. Melt butter in a large frypan over medium heat; add in onion and cook stirring occasionally until onion begins to brown (about 5 minutes).
  4. Stir in flour, then slowly add in milk.
  5. Add in potatoes; stir to mix; bring to a boil.
  6. Stir in 3/4 cup cheese, salt and black pepper.
  7. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish then spread out.
  8. Bake for 1 hour uncovered.
  9. After 1 hour cooking time cover with foil and continue to bake another 20 minutes more.
  10. Change oven to broil heat.
  11. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over potatoes and broil 6-inches from heat until the cheese is golden (about 1-2 minutes).
  12. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
