Homemade Potato bites

These are kinda like homemade fries.  I love them!!!

4 med baked potatoes
salt, about 1 tsp.
cooking spray
dry ranch or Italian dressing packet

Bake the potatoes.  Usually at about 400 degrees for 45 minutes, or most microwaves have a setting.  You can peel them if you want, I like the skins so I keep them on.  It gives it a little more crunch.  Let the potatoes cool.  Cut them.  You can either dice them or do them in strips, it's up to you.
Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.  Place the potatoes on the sheet and spray liberally with spray.  Sprinkle with salt and seasonings.  You won't use the whole packet so save it for later.  You only use about 1 tsp.
Broil at 500 degrees for 20 minutes.  Stir every 5 minutes to make sure they are evenly cooked.

These are virtually fat free.  Each potato has about 110 calories and I think is about 2 points.  This will serve 4 as a side with whatever you want.  Much better alternative then fries, which I think a medium fry from McD's is about 7 points.  You can flavor these however you like.  If you like cinnamon stix you can sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar for a nice sweet treat....mmm...that sounds good right now.  I think I'm doing that next. =)
