      Glad you enjoyed the potatoes Janice, I knwo it’s hard when you visit a blog that is run in another country, All the ingredients I use can be purchased in Canada or U.S and that is where most of my traffic that visits my blog is from, it would be like if I visited a food blog run by someone in NZ, I would find it difficult to get their products πŸ™ Hope there are enough recipes for you to enjoy still πŸ™‚

      1/6th of the dish, I did not weigh it out, I just divided into 6 equal servings, as long as you keep them similar size all should be good with points

      It’s a 9 inch dish as mentioned in post πŸ™‚ If I just say 8 inch or 9 inch then you know it’s a 9×9, I will say in recipe if it’s a 9×13..

  2. Can’t wait to try this dish! Do you think a yogurt dressing (such as Bolthouse) would be an OK substitute for the ranch dressing, or would a yogurt-based product not work for this? Thanks!

      Hi Lisa, I think that dressing will work great, hope you enjoy them πŸ™‚

      Hi Sara, thank you πŸ™‚ so glad you enjoyed them!

  5. New to your stuff but really liking the ideas. Haven’t tried anything yet. I’m super new. Lol

    I love that you put the points per serving wich is awesome.
    I have a question tho

    You say makes X amount of servings and each serving is X amount of pts. What if i happen to use a different size dish to make it in. How would I know the correct size for a serving?

    For example is a serving a cup or by weight?

    Thanks a ton.
    Have a great day .

      Hi AJ, generally a serving is by weight, so if you use a different size dish I would just try to cut into 6 equal servings and you can weigh a few to make sure you are keeping them about he same size .. I hope you enjoy the recipes

  6. Hi! Love this recipe – are you Canadian? I see you are using PC potatoes, however I am struggling to find β€œCenter cut” bacon here! Where did you purchase from? I can’t find Oscar Meyer here in Toronto!

      Hi Adriana, yes I am in Ontario, unfortunately we don’t have center cut bacon here, well at least not for the same points as the one they carry in the U.S, pre-covid I would cross the border monthly for a grocery shop as I am only 45 minutes away.
