“Scrumptious and lower fat way to make a super flavorful side potato dish. These are simple to make and do not have butter. Using olive oil and fat free half and half cuts the calories and fat back a lot yet still gives you a full flavored dish. I usually add more of everything as we like strong flavors and lots of salt and pepper at our house so feel free to adjust this recipe to your taste!”
