Potato Casserole

4 medium potatoes, diced
6 slices bacon, cooked, crumbled
6 eggs, beaten
2 c. reduced fat cheese, any variety
salt/pepper/other seasonings- to taste

Preheat oven to 350.  Boil potatoes, as if making mashed potatoes but don't cook until mushy.  Place potatoes on bottome of 9x13 dish.  sprinkle salt/pepper/seasonings over potatoes.  Pour eggs over. sprinkle with cheese and bacon.  Cover with foil and cook 40-45 minutes.

The total points for this recipe is 42 and will serve around 8 people, but that depends on how much you want to eat.
To lessen the points, you may substitute the eggs for egg whites, use 12 egg whites instead and the total point value would be 28.  Also, if you don't want the bacon, the total will be 36.  You may also susbsitute turkey bacon, but i'm not sure what the value would be, probably around 38.

So if you used egg whites and turkey bacon the points would be around 30-32.

Now I know this recipe isn't exactly diet...but it can be with the substitutions. =)
