Weight Watchers Points Information:
Some of the recipes for the new myWW programs have equal points for each program while others, like this potato casserole, have kind of wildly different points for each plan. Check out the points below which are calculated per serving, so you know how to track this one on your particular plan!
- Green Plan: 7 Points
- Blue Plan: 3 Points
- Purple Plan: 1 Point
For most of the plans the majority of the points are coming from the potatoes. There’s no real substitute for those so it’s not really possible to cut out obvious points. Feel free to let us know in the comments below if you make changes that you think others will like!
One serving of this potato casserole for Weight Watchers is 1 piece. Cut the pan into 6 equal servings when it has cooled so you know how much / how little goes into a serving!

You can find the full amounts and nutritional information in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post. If you make any changes, substitutions, or alterations you’ll need to recalculate the points on this recipe for yourself to be sure that they come out accurately.

For this tasty recipe we’ll need cooking spray, frozen shredded hash browns, 50% reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese, salt and pepper, eggs, frozen corn, and some scallions.
That’s it! If you like a little spice in your recipes you can feel free to add some chopped jalapeños or some cayenne pepper. That would be a nice little boost of flavor and spice if you like!
How to make potato crusted casserole:
First, heat the oven to 425°F and coat an 11×7 inch baking pan with non-stick spray.
Next, spread the potatoes out onto a layer of paper towels and squeeze them to remove as much moisture as you can.
In a mixing bowl, combine the potatoes, 1/2 cup of cheese, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper. When that is well combined, press the mixture into the pan and up the sides of the dish to create a crust.
Bake that crust at 425 degrees F until it’s lightly browned.
Now, remove the crust from the oven and reduce the temperature to 375 Degrees F.
In your mixing bowl combine the eggs, remaining cheese, the rest of the salt and pepper, and whisk. Stir in the scallions and the frozen corn.
Add that mixture into the potato crust and bake for about 30 minutes. Let the casserole stand for 5 minutes before you cut and serve it!
