    Question

    I've got a dining out question that I hope someone can help me with. I went out to dinner today and had a baked potato that came already buttered. Usually they just put the little cup of butter on the side but this one came with the butter melted in. Does anyone know generally how much butter they put in a baked potato in a restaurant? The rest of my meal was WW friendly- salad and grilled fish, but I really want to figure out how many points for the butter on that potato!!
    Thanks,

    My guess, and it't obviously a guess, is that they put 2 tsp. on (2 points). Restauruants usually use whipped butter and a little melon scooper to put it on.

    I would say it was more like at least a tablespoon or more of whipped butter.

    Thanks for the replies. I decided to be on the safe side and assume 1 tb of butter. I had not eaten hardly any points before that so I was able to finish the day with points to spare. Thanks again,

    I know it's after the fact [img]smile.gif[/img] but I vote that they put at least one Tablespoon of butter on those potatoes!
