In these days of recession, from time to time you may be invited somewhere with an instruction to ‘bring a plate’ (which, of course, means bring a plate with something on it to share for dinner… rather than bring a piece of crockery from which to partake of your meal…).
If you’re anything like me, you may be a little bit hopeful that one of the other participants may bring that bastion of pot luck dinners… the humble scalloped potato. It’s great cheap food and a little of it goes a looong way!!! And ooh, goodness, doesn’t it taste goooood!
It was my turn to take these babies to dinner last night and in order not to break the belts of everyone there with the usual cream or cream soup based dish I found a recipe that calls for a much less calorie rich ingredient list.. (and so I added the things (like bacon and cheese) you wouldn’t add if you were calorie minded and were basing the whole thing in cream.
