Baked Potato Casserole

Hey everyone,

Anyways I wanted to point out that in my recipes I use Fat Free, Low fat, and Reduced Sodium. When making recipes I always sub the healthier alternative if available. I have been doing this sense after Christmas and I have lost 15 pounds in doing so! I have herd a couple people say your going to fatten me up and such lol! But if you eat the serving size with subbing in the healthier option of ingredients you do not have to worry about that! Now the desserts I post hmmmm not so much but as you can see I do not post many desserts but sometimes you have to indulge a little bit :)!

This recipe is no exception. If you were to make this with all the regular ingredients it would be 1794 Whole - 299 per serving(6 servings). Using my recipe it is 975 Whole - 162.5 Per serving(6 servings). So using my recipe you save 136.5 Calories per serving! I just wanted to point this out! I do this with all of my recipes sense after Christmas time I think maybe a little before! So I am not giving yaw junk I am really thinking about Fat, Calories and Health! I mean come on I feed my daughter this stuff :)!
