Tasty Tuesday: Low-Fat Scalloped Potatoes

How delicious does this bowl look? I'm a big potato lover, especially when the skin is peeled to its finest. Although potatoes are filled with a high starch, I have found the perfect low-fat potato dish. This recipe comes from no other than the Food Network Channel's website and the given dish name is "Low-Fat Scalloped Potatoes". Sounds yummy from start to finish. This recipe gives a 6-8 serving amount, so eat wisely lol. I haven't tried this dish yet, but the flavored salt that appears on top of the potatoes looks very yummy, reminds me of the Honey BBQ Chips for some reason. Anywho, if you get a chance to make this potato meal, let me know how it tastes. Continue after the jump for the recipe and link. Bon' Appetite'! 



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a 3-quart baking dish. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil; add the potatoes and cook until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain the potatoes and return to the pot.
Meanwhile, melt 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the flour with a wooden spoon to make a paste. Cook, stirring, until the paste puffs slightly, about 1 minute. Graduallywhisk in both milks and simmer, whisking constantly, until thickened, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in 1/2 teaspoon pepper, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and the nutmeg. Pour the sauce over the potatoes and gently toss to coat.
Transfer the potato mixture to the prepared baking dish and sprinkle with the gruyere. Bake until heated through, about 10 minutes. Switch the oven to the broiler setting and broil the potatoes until browned on top, about 5 minutes. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.
