Potato Fans: 4-6 WW (Weight Watchers) Freestyle Smart Points

My husband’s job is very demanding. The type of work they do creates a non-medical on call situation that occupies day, night and mostly weekends. He works hard to provide for our family and we enjoy those few sweet moments when we can spend them together without interruption.

They are even more sweet when they come with a gift card. A prepaid dinner date…at a super nice new restaurant in downtown Knoxville. We invited a couple friend and had a wonderful night out, thanks new boss man!

JC Holdway is one of the newest hidden jewels in downtown K town and boy did we enjoy that meal. Hubby was smart enough to choose one with an interesting potato concoction that I wanted to crack when we got home. Little did I know this is a popular style of potato (and other vegetable/meat) preparation known as Hassleback. I’m rooting for a new verb “hassle backing”…when you taste these you will be hassle backing too!

Watch Chat #95 to see how I made them! (start at about 30 minutes)


My Potato Fans are 4 to 6 SP depending on the size of the potato used and the add-ins. Don"t just use mine, get wild and make it your own with your fave toppings!
