Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day – Slow Cooker Scalloped Potatoes and Ham
Every time I sit down to a plate of scalloped potatoes I ask myself why I don’t make them more often.
They’re an old classic that I’ve loved since I was a kid.
And the addition of a little ham and cheese turns them into a deliciously satisfying main dish.
This was the first time making slow cooker scalloped potatoes and ham.
I adapted the recipe slightly from Fix-It and Forget-It New Cookbook: 250 New Delicious Slow Cooker Recipes!
Skinny on Slow Cooker Scalloped Potatoes and Ham
It was the perfect way to use up what remained of the slow cooker ham I had tossed in the freezer.
I used reduced-fat cheddar cheese and Healthy Request cream of mushroom soup to lower the fat, calories and Weight Watchers Points a bit.
One of the keys to scalloped potatoes is slicing the potatoes really thin, which can be kind of a pain. I love using my little portable slicer, which makes the job sooo much easier!
Served with salad and steamed broccoli, these slow cooker scalloped potatoes and ham made us both smile.
And the leftovers disappeared without a problem too 🙂
According to my calculations each serving has 249 calories, *6 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, *7 SmartPoints, *7 WW Freestyle SmartPoints.
