WW Au Gratin Potatoes

Last year at this time, I was trying the Weight Watcher diet.

As usual, I was off on a hunt for the best recipes.  Being a potato lover, this recipe immediately grabbed my attention.

It was very good!

My problem is…I just can’t eat sugar or starch without it showing up…so I eventually went back to low carb.

If you are one that can do WW’s successfully, then this is a great recipe to try.

Weight Watcher Skillet Cornbread

One of the Weight Watcher recipes I’ve tried recently…

.

The cornbread was very moist and had great flavor.  I am a big fan of using buttermilk in baked breads and cakes and the buttermilk flavor came through strong for me.  I could’ve almost eaten this with a fork.  It was very good and I’ll definitely be making it as long as I do Weight Watchers.

Weight Watcher Skillet Cornbread

1 cup uncooked cornmeal, yellow

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp table salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

14 3/4 oz cream-style corn, canned

1/2 cup buttermilk

2 large egg whites

2 tsp corn oil

.

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat an 8-inch square cake pan or 8″ skillet as I’ve done here, with cooking spray. (I used my pastry brush and brushed the skillet with oil.)

.

Combine cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. Mix well with a fork, then make a well in the center; set aside.

.

Combine creamed corn, buttermilk, egg whites and oil in a medium bowl; mix until blended. Fold mixture into dry ingredients; mix until blended. Pour batter into prepared pan and smooth the top.

.

Bake until a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Allow to cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan; cool completely before cutting into 8 squares.

Weight Watcher Points Value 3 per serving.

Weight Watcher Points

Around this time every year, I get a desire for certain foods…

Chex Party Mix!

.

Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Oatmeal!

.

.

Homebaked Cookies!!!

.

.

…so, I’ve made a scary decision. 

.

.

I’ve decided to start counting Weight Watcher Points. 

.

I’m not attending local meetings,  just starting a food journal and keeping up with my points.  It’s kinda like calorie counting,  I’ll just be watching my fat intake more than usual.  I’ve not worried about fats for a very long time, but apparently I need to make some changes.

I’ve gotta do something to shake up my metabolism.  Hopefully this will be it.

.

So, in over the next few days, I’ll begin to share Weight Watcher recipes with you.  I made some pretty good stuff this weekend!

.

This is a big change from low carb.  I know low carb works for me, if I work at it, so I’ll be trying to stick more to fresh veggies and some fresh fruit, yogurt, almonds, lower carb and cal bread, and lean meats. That means more stir-fries, but I get to add a little long grain rice or pasta.

.

We’ll just see how it goes.

I’ll be adding a new Weight Watcher page, similar to my low carb page.

Cross your fingers and say a prayer for me! 🙂
