I serve mine on Weight Watchers Sandwich Thins (1 Old Point) with sautéed  mushrooms, onions, and bell peppers (0 Old Points). For more zero point additions, you can add mustard and tomato. So you get all of that for 3 points!

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes


Ingredients
  • 1 medium head garlic, papery skin removed and top sliced off to expose cloves
  • 1¼ pounds all-purpose potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • ½  teaspoon salt (will be split for recipe)
  • 3 tablespoons fat-free buttermilk
Preparation
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Wrap the garlic head in aluminium foil; bake until the cloves are soft, 45-60 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes; squeeze the pulp from the cloves into a small bowl.
  2. In a large pot, combine the potatoes, bay leaf, ¼ teaspoon of the salt, and enough cold water to cover; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer and cook until the potatoes are tender, 10-15 minutes. Drain, reserving the cooking liquid; discard the bay leaf.
  3. With a potato masher or an electric mixer at low speed, mash the potatoes with the garlic, buttermilk, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; thin with the cooking liquid if needed.
