Weight Watcher’s Steakhouse Fries Two Ways

Potato recipes are always a good side dish either for breakfast, lunch or dinner – even as an appetizer.  I like to serve these fries with a good spicy black bean, turkey or beef  burger.   The first  recipe is worth 3 points per 4 wedges.   Smoked paprika  adds a little zing!  The second recipe is 4 points per 8 fries.

WW Steakhouse Fries Two Ways

  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. smoked paprika (not the regular paprika)
  • 2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 2 (10 oz.) baking potatoes, washed and each cut into 8 wedges

Preheat the oven to 425°F.  Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray or just use a foil lined or parchment lined baking sheet.

Mix the dry ingredients together in a small bowl.  Put the potatoes in a larger bowl and spray with nonstick spray, tossing until the potatoes are coated.  Sprinkle the dry mixture over the wedges and mix well.

Arrange potatoes on prepared baking sheet and bake for about 25 minutes or until tender (poke them with a fork/knife).  Very good and spicy 🙂

This second recipe appeared in the new Weight Watcher’s 50th Anniversary Cookbook and is lightly seasoned with salt and pepper and a sprinkle or two of malt vinegar.

WW Steakhouse Fries with Malt Vinegar

  • 4 (5 oz.) russet potatoes, scrubbed
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp. malt vinegar or you could use white vinegar

Adjust the oven rack to its lowest position in the oven and preheat the oven to 450°F.

Cut the potatoes lengthwise into eighths and toss with the  oil.  Lay them out on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes.  Turn, and bake for another 10 minutes or until nicely browned.

Remove from the oven and sprinkle with salt and pepper and malt vinegar.  Serve with extra malt vinegar on the side.
