Marie Callender’s Cheddar & Bacon Potato Bake
Product Description: “Oven-roasted red potatoes smothered in a flavorful bacon-cheddar cheese sauce with scallions, all sprinkled with shredded cheddar cheese.”
Fat: 17 g
WW Points Plus: 9
First Impressions: Another Marie Callender’s, because they were on sale. Definitely not a diet meal with 17g of fat, but not a total killer in terms of calories. It looks… yellow. Ms. Callender, your meals are no beauties.
Gustatory Impressions: At my first bite, I am struck by how much you can taste the bacon in the cheese sauce. It tastes smokey and meaty and quite good. And for once, there is enough cheese in a meal to satisfy me! The scallions are not my favorite, but they’re fine. Some of the potato bits were a little mealy, but also mostly fine. There was a little bit of extra cheddar on top of the thing, but once you stir it, it’s pretty indistinguishable from the sauce.
Summary: Cheese, cheese, cheese and bacon. Very filling. If you’re not a fan of cheese, skip this one. But if you like cheese sauce… here you go!
