First off, What amount of Carbs is considered to be low Carbs, in a low carb Dukan Diet? Thanks for any comment. Another question... Anyone have any ideas on how to spruce up the cheesy potatoes? I am at the point where I can't even look at them and I have so many. I think I ate too many of them when I first started..

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer. I'll do some research and get back to you if I find an anything. You should email the people at Dukan Diet as they probably could assist you..

Have you seen the recipe for Potato pancakes or Potato salad using the Cheesy potatoes? Both are great. Check out the recipe club, found in the drop down menu under "community"...

Comment #2

Did you check Lynn (Graylady) blog. She must have about 30 recipes for the potatoes...

Comment #3

I make potato soup, a recipe I saw on here at one time. You make the potatoes, with a little less water, and then heat them up on the stove with fat free milk and fat free cheese (to equal your protein). It's so yummy and very filling!..

Since the weather is getting cooler, I've started making potato soup out of the cheesy potatoes. I cook diced onion, celery & garlic in 3/4 cup chicken broth until tender, then add hot water & potatoes to soup consistency. Then I add a hotdog, 1 oz ham, bacon, or 1 sl ff cheese for the protein. The different consistency makes it seem like a completely different entree...

Alicia, We must have been writing at the same time! Great minds think alike!..

Comment #6

I saute onions and garlic then add Yves Veggie Ground Round(you could use ground cow) and a bit of frozen peas and corn. Dump into a portable container with lid, then slop the potatoes on top. Sprinkle with paprike - voila -Shepherd's Pie...

Comment #7

Thanks for the ideas so far..

Last few days I have added veggie crumbles (fake meat) to the potatoes and they were really good. A nice change..

Thanks again..

Comment #8

I saute some diced onion, while the potatoes are on hold (water added), then mix the onions in, add a little egg sub, make patties and dip in bread crumbsThen saute in some spray. It makes about 3 chunky cakes, good with apple sauce for breakfast...

How could you be tired of my most favorite lunch in the world?.

No, I totally get it - I have a lot of them, too, but I love them and haven't gotten too tired of them yet. What I did started doing recently that sort of changes the flavor a bit and tastes really good (in my opinion) is adding a dollop or two of fat free sour cream - it makes the potatoes even creamier! Yummy!..

Comment #10

Hahahahah ha...Yes, I know...They are the most favorite lunch...and used to be mine. One month, all I ordered for lunch was the cheesy potatoes....I think that is what did me in and I just need a break..

Today I made them into pancakes and added a little egg beaters as well as some veggie crumbles. I fried 3 cakes in some Pam and had some ketchup over them. They were really really good. Kinda' reminded me of eating hash (corn beef/ground beef hash)..

Bunnie07 posted this back in the early spring...check page 51 for a picture....

Cheesy Baked Potato Soup Featuring the Dukan Diet Cheesy Homestyle Potatoes.

Counts as Dukan Diet lunch and protein (82.5 cal, 9.5g protein).

Ingredients: 1 Dukan Diet Cheesy Homestyle Potato Soup.

1 cooked slice Turkey Bacon 25 cal, 2g protein.

1/8 cup (or 2 tbsp.) FF Cheese 22.5 cal, 4.5g protein.

1/2 cup light soy milk (or FF milk) 35 cal, 3g protein.

A few sprinkles pepper.

Heat 1 cup water for two minutes. Mix into Dukan Diet potatoes and stir well. Transfer to large bowl. Add in 1 tablespoon FF cheese to melt. Stir in milk. Reheat a few seconds if necessary.


After preparation, feel free to add more hot water to it to thin it out more if you'd like!.

*Tip for "chunky"potato soup.

Cook some cauliflower and pulse lightly with a dollop of FF sour cream, salt and pepper. Drop chunks in for mock chunky potato soup. (Thanks Prubelle and Newyearnewhope!) Cauliflower replaces lunch salad and FF sour cream is a free food!.

You know, I bet there'd be a way to make cheesy potatoes into a broccoli-cheese soup like everyone keeps asking for. maybe less water, more milk, then puree the crap out of it, and add broccoli bits?..

Comment #13

Good afternoon - I'm trying the potato soup and adding broccoli to it. It sounded good on a cold wintry day!! Judyf..

Comment #14

I just made them with a few sprays of ICBINB, slight sprinkle of FF cheddar, then microwaved to melt the cheese. Topped with a bit of ff sour cream and a sprinkle of bacon bits-tasted like a loaded baked potato. Had that with a black bean burger...really delicous lunch!..

Comment #15

OK - I tried it and I liked it. I fixed the potatoes as directed. I buy Green Giant Just for One Broccoli and Cheese Sauce - it comes in 4 individual trays and is just right for me. So I fixed one of the trays and added it to the potatoes - it is thick so you probably can add some fat-free milk to make it souper..

The nutrition facts for each tray of the broccoli and cheese sauce is Calories 60, Fat Cal 25, Total Fat 3gr. Judyf..

Comment #16

Judy- what are you counting the tray as...a veggie, it has too much fat or is it a veggie and dairy/protein, how much protein is in it? Just curious as I love brocolli with cheese sauce..

Comment #17

According to the box it is 1 Vegetable and 1/2 fat and protein is 2 grams. I thought it was good and very filling...
