  • Makes: 12
  • Serving Size: 1/3 cup
  • Preparation Time: 20 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 1 1/2 hour


1 1/2 Tbsp. nonhydrogenated butter-type tub spread (such as Smart Balance)
1 1/2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
Salt and pepper to taste
1 2/3 cups 1% milk
1 1/2 cups shredded 75% reduced-fat cheddar cheese (extra sharp if available)
6 med. russet potatoes (about 6 oz. each), peeled and cut into d-inch-thick slice


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. To prepare the cheese sauce: Melt the buttery spread in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add in the flour, salt, and pepper, and stir constantly with a wire whisk for 1 minute. Stir in the milk, and cook until thickened, stirring constantly. Stir in all the cheese, and cook for 30 seconds.
  2. Place half of the potato slices in a 9- by 13-inch baking pan coated with cooking spray. Pour in half the cheese sauce. Add remaining potatoes in a layer, and pour in the remaining cheese sauce.
  3. Cover the dish with foil, and bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until potatoes are tender. Remove the foil, and broil the top of the casserole for 1 to 2 minutes if desired.
