Warm Potato Goodness!

I have Onyah to thank for this great idea:

Take a regular old russet potato, cook it in the microwave oven on high for 7-10 min (based on the power of your microwave and the size of the potato). While it's cooling, zap one of those little Green Giant low fat broccoli and cheese packs. (I used the single serving size, but you could use the regular size with a big potato, too.) Then cut open the potato, pour the broccoli and cheese all over, and start shoveling it into your mouth. BIG YUM!

And potatoes are crazy-good for you. Plus you get your veggies from the broccoli and the cheese sauce is a good lowfat source of dairy. This one is a big-time winner! And it's so hot and comforting, it's perfect for a cold winter's night.

Mmmm that sounds good, and I am a potato fanatic...will have to try that!

But, how many points?

Hey AM - I'm not tracking points anymore myself. But I know the single-serve portion of the Green Giant broccoli & cheese is 1 point, and the regular size package is 2 points. So then just add in whatever the potato is.... It's a really darn healthy and tasty meal!
