I love potatoes. I just can’t live without them!
That’s one of the many reasons I love WW so much. I can still have my potatoes. The trick is being smart with how I eat them.
These ranch roasted potatoes are 4 Freestyle points per serving, which is 1/2 cup. A half cup doesn’t sound like much, but it’s a perfect size for a side dish.
The points in this recipe come from the potatoes. I used 2 pounds of potatoes which gave me 6 half cup servings. I highly recommend weighing the potatoes. It’s the only way to know exactly how many potatoes you can use.
I used Pam Superior No Stick cooking spray, which is actual olive oil. You can have 8 sprays for 0 points.
The seasonings I used were also 0 points. I used dried dill, dried chives, parsley, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
I added my potatoes to a mixing bowl, gave it 3 pumps of the cooking spray and added half of the seasoning.
I stirred the potatoes, gave it three more pumps of the olive oil spray, added the rest of the seasoning and stirred the potatoes again.
I spread the potatoes across a sheet pan and baked them at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. About half way through I pulled the potatoes out of the oven, mixed them up and added two more pumps of the olive oil spray.
I love these ranch roasted potatoes!
Since the potatoes are 4 Freestyle points I paired them with a boneless, skinless chicken breast and a salad with low point dressing.
Even though I had potatoes, my entire dinner was only 5 Freestyle points. I love being able to eat what I want. I just need to plan ahead for when I want potatoes!
