    At 5 Plus Points per serving, this is not what I would call "skinny" recipe (Weight Watchers Plus Points). Can you suggest a lower fat version?

      There's an error in the recipe, run it through the recipe builder on the weight watchers website. It says 1/4 tablespoon and there's no way its 9grams of fat per serving with that small of an amount. Hope this helps.

      The extra points are coming from the olive oil. You could always cook the potatoes with a bit of chicken stock but they won't brown like this. The browning is due to the olive oil. I had to quit weight watchers because I just couldnt fit it all the healthy fats I needed with the limited amount of points I got :/

    what size is each serving?

      Viceve115, That depends on the size of your potatoes…around 2/3 cup.

    How many pounds of potatoes would this be?  I like the smaller red potatoes.

      Nacota, About 2 medium or 4 small potatoes.

    If I cut the oil in half, will it come out the same?

    Reply
    • Skinny Ms.  August 4, 2012

      Pam, Can't say for sure since I've never cut the oil in half. Keep in mind that olive oil is a healthy fat. Try using 3 tablespoons and that should still work.

    I made these yesterday, they were delicious!   Thanks for the recipe!  I used the smaller red potatoes, they seem to cook a little faster, just an FYI for others.

    This is a skinny/healthy recipe. The fat in the oil is all good fat. Unfortunately if you want something that is going to fit in your point scale, I would find something else (although, as suggested below, you could cook with stock, but they will not turn out the same). I do not know anything about WW points, but I do know that your body needs healthy fats ๐Ÿ™‚

    So, what WERE the points when you put it through the recipe builder, if you know?
    Thanks.

    If you want it even more unbelievably good…prepare a meatloaf, pat it out on top of potatoes and let cook all together. SO GOOD!

    after reading all the reviews; Im left confused? Is there a error on the EVOO as stated & if so, how much. I do not follow WW points but just try to watch a little of everything in general.

    Reply
    • Skinny Ms.  October 7, 2012

      Dorene, 1/4 cup is correct. We use evoo because of its health benefits…it's a healthy fat!

      Reply
  13. Skinny Ms.  October 7, 2012

    Olive Oil is a healthy fat…don't think weight watchers distinguishes between healthy fats and unhealthy ones or complex carbs and simple carbs. Our recipes use healthy fats and complex carbs. For example, walnuts are also very high in fat but are one of the healthiest foods available.

    Last night I was CRAVING potatoes..chips or fries. I could've literally stuck my head in the bag of chips and gone to town. Instead, I made these, except I popped them in the oven. Much healthier way satisfy a potato craving ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks!

    Made these tonight with red potatoes (8 I think), my husband kept commenting on how awesome they were & didn't believe me when I told him how I made them. He kept asking what the secret ingredient was until I showed him the recipe. I'm not usually a big fan of rosemary, but I agree with my hubby that these truly were awesome! FYI, I was using my larger crockpot for the roast so I split the recipe into 2 & cooked each half in a 1.5 qt cooker for about 1 hour on high & 4 on low.

    Sharon, Whoops…may have missed your deadline. Yes, you can leave out the rosemary and add chopped onion. I’d recommend no more than 1/2 full. Hmmmm….10 hours is pushing it and you don’t want the potatoes to be all crunch. Let me know what you ended up doing and the results. Hoping your co-workers enjoyed! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I recently made these for a special occasion. They were freaking amazing! I have a large crock pot and I used 6 good sized red potatoes, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. OMGosh. Hubby and I made yummy noises with every, single bite. Definitely a keeper. Worthy of a holiday and so much healthier than scalloped or au gratin. YUMMY.

    For those wondering about the stock, they turn out great when subbing the oil for some stock or broth. I used broth once after realizing I was out of oil. Still a great recipe!

    Halved the amounts for my 3 1/2 quart crockpot. Cooked for 2 hours on high. The potatoes turned out tasty and neatly browned. Many thanks to the contributor of this recipe. I will definitely make this again and again!

    I am doing a small wedding dinner for 30 and would like to use this recipe, any idea how long in a large slow cooker this would take and how many potatoes I should use.

    Reply
    • SkinnyMs  October 17, 2015

      Hi Grooms Mom, I would times all the ingredients by 4 or 5. Here's my suggestion:

      1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
      16 medium red potatoes, cubed into 1/2" pieces (unpeeled if preferred)
      6 cloves garlic, minced
      1/4 cup chopped fresh rosemary
      2 teaspoons black pepper
      2 teaspoons Kosher or sea salt to taste (guests can add more salt to taste)

      Keep in mind it will take longer to cook this many potatoes. If possible, I would use 2 slow cookers instead of one large. Best wishes to the Bride and Groom! ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep us posted…

    It is my husband that could eat potatoes in any form with every meal and in between. I am looking forward to trying this recipe as I get bored with mashed baked or fried potato cooking. This recipe sounds easy and healthy and something that can be enjoyed several times weekly and with almost any main course. I was wondering if dried rosemary could be substituted? Appreciate all the comments and suggestions.

    • Gale Compton  April 10, 2017

      Marilee, Sure just add about 15 minutes before turning off the slow cooker.
