Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : REG 6 Suzanne C.


Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3 pounds red potatoes -- scrubbed
2 cloves garlic -- peeled
1 small onion -- peeled and halved
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 cups 1% low-fat milk
1 1/3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil a 9 by 13 inch baking dish or coat it with nonstick spray.
Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with cold salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and cook, covered, until barely tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain, cool and slip off skins.
Using a food processor or the large-holed side of a four-sided grater, coarsely grate potatoes. Set aside.
In a food processor, combine garlic, onion, flour, 1 1/2 teas salt, mustard, cayenne and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper; pulse until finely chopped. Add 1/2 cup milk and process until smooth. Scrape into a medium saucepan, add remaining 2 1/2 cups milk and bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring constantly. Simmer, stirring, until thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1 cup cheese until melted
In a large bowl, combine potatoes and cheese mixture. Transfer to prepared baking dish.
In a small bowl, combine remaining 1/3 cup cheese, breadcrumbs and oil. Season with salt and black pepper and mix with your fingers. Sprinkle crumb mixture evenly over potato mixture. (the potatoes will keep, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 1 day.)
Cover pan with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake for 20 minutes more, or until golden brown and bubbling. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Spicy Spud - 2 or 3 Points

Recipe By :Richard Simmons
Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Potaotes


Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 small russet potato
1/4 cup lowfat cottage cheese
1 tablespoon salsa
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
paprika

When baking potatoes in the microwave without stuffing, I let them cook
until just barely done, then transfer them to my toaster oven preheated to
375 degrees F until the rest of the meal is ready, (about 10 to 15 minutes).
This way the skin tastes like that of a regular oven-baked potato. When
cooking several potatoes, arrange in a circle around the outer edge of
turntable or plate, with thickest part towards the outside.

1. Scrub potato and pierce with fork on both sides.

2. Microwave on HIGH (100% power) 3 to 5 minutes, or until potato
feels soft when pressed. (Turn potato over after two minutes for more
even cooking.)

3. Let stand 2 to 3 minutes.

4. Slice potato in half and scoop potato pulp from shell, leaving 1/4 inch
border.

5. In small bowl, mash potato pulp with cottage cheese, salsa and cilantro.
Spoon mixture back into shells. Sprinkle with paprika.

6. Microwave on HIGH 2 minutes, or until heated through. Makes 1
serving.

NOTE: For variety, try red skinned or white rose potatoes. They have a
different taste and texture and are delicious baked in the microwave.

Here is what we had for dinner last night:

A Variation of Reggie's Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes (3 pts) [I put it in an 8" square Pyrex
dish (sprayed with butter-flavored Pam) in a 325F Oven to keep it warm while working on the chicken.]

WW 's "In A Flash" Balsamic Chicken with Mushrooms (4 pts)
French-cut Green Beans w/ 1 Tablespoon of toasted, sliced almonds per serving (1 pt)

It was a very filling and delicious 8 WW pt meal.

-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 1/4 pounds Russet Potatoes -- Note 1, 6 medium
1 medium Garlic Bulb -- Separated Into Cloves, Peeled
3/4 teaspoon Salt
1/8 teaspoon Pepper
1/2 cup Nonfat Milk -- up to 3 /4 cup, Heated
3/8 cup Light Sour Cream -- Note 2

Place potatoes and garlic in med saucepan; add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to med-low; cover loosely and boil gently for 15 - 20 min or until potatoes break apart easily when pierced with fork. Drain well.

Mash potatoes and garlic until no lumps remain (we like lumps so we didn't mash them completely). Add salt, pepper, milk and sour cream (if you use it); continue mashing until potatoes are smooth (or lumpy). Sprinkle with
extra pepper, if desired.

JaneStarr's Note: I made this using Land 'O Lakes FF sour cream which changes the nutrition to : 169 cals, trace fat (1%CFF),3 g fiber= 3pts (This is putting in 2 1/4 lbs of potato rather than 6 medium (for rescaled recipe)-- data base doesn't have a "med" listing. NI is for unpeeled potatoes.) My garlic bulb was very large, so I used 5 cloves and cut them in half.
This was excellent!

NOTES : if you haven't made this yet you will absolutely LOVE it (at least we did). We found it to be so "meaty" tasting that we ate it as a main dish...just a green salad and maybe a glass of wine and you are all set. One other thing that I really like is that we both work and I am constantly searching for things that I can make on weekends and then just "nuke and eat" after work.

Double-Stuffed Potatoes or Mashed -- 5 lbs. --4 to 5 points

Recipe By :JaneStarr@home.com
Serving Size : 10 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : potatoes Weight Watchers


Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
5 pounds Idaho potatoes -- 10 medium
4 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup skim milk -- to 1/2 c warmed
4 tablespoons parmesan cheese -- grated
1/2 cup nonfat cottage cheese
1/2 cup nonfat sour cream
salt and white pepper -- to taste

1a). For Mashed Potatoes:
Peel potatoes and cut into chunks (about 2 inches square). Boil in salted water for about 20 minutes -- until tender. Drain potatoes and place back in pot. Proceed as below:

1b). For Baked Double-stuffed :
Wash potatoes well and prick with a fork. Bake for about 1 hour at 425 degrees (until done).
Cut potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out insides. Put potato pulp into a large bowl and proceed per below directions:

2). Mash potatoes with butter, then stir in milk and cheeses. (If serving "fussy eaters", you may want to puree cottage cheese before adding -- I don't usually do this, but it made for a smoother texture the one time that I tried it)
Stir in sour cream and desired seasonings. (I often use seasoned salt and a pinch of cajun seasoning.)

3a). Serve immediately as mashed potatoes or...

3b). Place in a 8" square casserole dish that has been sprayed with cooking oil spray. Sprinkle with paprika and bake uncovered at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes for potato casserole or...

3c). Fill each potato skin, place on baking sheet, sprinkle with Paprika and bake for approximately 20-30 mins at 350 to 425 degrees (depending on what else you have cooking in the oven).

I have yet to try freezing these; but I imagine that the casserole and the skins would both freeze well. (I might consider leaving out the sour cream if freezing.)

I'm not sure how long they would take to reheat from the frozen state. I would try 350 degrees and check on the double-stuffs after 35 mins and the casserole after 45 mins.

-------- ------------ --------------------------------
5 pounds Idaho potatoes -- 10 medium
4 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup skim milk -- to 1/2 c warmed
4 tablespoons parmesan cheese -- grated
1/2 cup nonfat cottage cheese -- I use high calcium kind
1/2 cup nonfat sour cream
salt and white pepper -- to taste

1a). For Mashed Potatoes:
Peel potatoes and cut into chunks (about 2 inches square). Boil in salted water for about 20 minutes -- until tender. Drain potatoes and place back in pot. Proceed as below:

1b). For Baked Double-stuffed :
Wash potatoes well and prick with a fork. Bake for about 1 hour at 425 degrees (until done).

3c). Fill each potato skin, place on baking sheet, sprinkle with Paprika and bake for approximately 20-30 mins at 350 to 425 degrees (depending on what else you have cooking in the oven).


I don't really care for the flavor or texture of potatoes that have been frozen and thawed, but I'm picky... so, I have yet to try freezing these; but I imagine that the casserole and the skins would both freeze well. (I might consider leaving out the sour cream if freezing.)

I'm not sure how long they would take to reheat from the frozen state. I would try 350 degrees and check on the double-stuffs after 35 mins and the casserole after 45 mins.

These double-stuffed potatoes keep well for at least a week in the fridge (as long as you use fresh milk). I reheat in a 350 degree toaster oven for about 12 minutes.

These french fries are so easy. Start with one 10 ounce potato per person. Preheat oven to 400. Peel and cut potato into fries. Soak in bowl of ice water 5 minutes.(very important) Drain and rinse. Dry well. I usually use a clean kitchen towel. They need to be very dry to get crisp. Spray cookie sheet and place fries in single layer.Spray fries with Pam and sprinkle with seasoned salt. Bake 20 minutes, turn and spray again. Bake another 20 minutes until they are golden and crispy. That's it. 3 points. Am I not the laziest cook in town?!

Super simple to make and they taste fabulous! The recipe suggests you bake the potato in the oven, I used my microwave- it was much faster to prepare.

4 (5oz) Idaho potatoes, scrubbed
1/3 cup feta cheese, room temp
1/3 cup plan low-fat yogurt (1%) room temp
1tbsp melted butter
1tbsp snipped fresh chives

Preheat oven to 425'F. Bake potatoes for approx. 45 mins. Remove and let cool slightly. Reduce oven to 375'F.

Split the potatoes in half horizontally. Scoop out the flesh from each half, leaving a 1/4 inch think layer still in the shell. Transfer the potato flesh to a medium bowl.

Add the feta, yogurt, butter and chives to the potato flesh and mash well. Stuff the shells and arrange filling-side up on a baking sheet. Bake until the filling is hot in the centre and the edges are lightly browned- approx 12 mins.

I cooked mine for 12 mins then put them under the broiler for a couple more minutes to make them crispy.

1 teaspoon Onion Powder
1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
1 Pound 4 ounces Baking Potatoes, cut into 1/2" sticks

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil (dull side up); spray with nonstick cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine broth, paprika, onion powder, and pepper. Add potato sticks; turn to coat thoroughly. Arrange potatoes in a single layer on prepared baking sheet; spray the tops with nonstick cooking spray. Bake 10 minutes, and then turn carefully. Continue to bake turning the fries every 10 minutes until tender and crispy. Average bake time is 20-30 minutes or a little longer depending on how crunchy you like your fries.
