One of my favorite, easy and low calorie side dish recipes are these fantastic Roasted French Onion Potatoes. Just a few simple ingredients, a few minutes of prep, and you’ve got one delicious dish that has just 3 Points per serving.

These roasted potatoes are LOADED with french onion flavor, and are always a hit with the family. I prefer them with the buttery, Yukon Gold potatoes, but a baby red works just as well. I often make these french onion potatoes when I’m too lazy to make a french onion soup.

Adding the flavor!

These are a great alternative to french fries! So much less fat and calories.

It helps satisfy my carb cravings, but takes a lot less time, and has less Weight Watchers Points.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Crisped to perfection. Look at those divine browned bits on the potatoes and onions. That is a big part of the yum factor.
