A guilt-free fully loaded potato skin filled with cheese, scallions and bacon.
Serves: 18 Halves
Ingredients
  • 2 lbs red potatoes
  • ½ cup greek yogurt, plain
  • ¼ cup light cheddar cheese
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper, ground
  • 2 dashes smoked paprika
  • 2 tbsp. scallions, diced small
  • 1 slice bacon, cooked, crumbled small
Instructions
  1. In a large pot, add potatoes and enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil, and cook potatoes for approx. 20 minutes, until fork tender. Drain potatoes from water and set a side until cool enough to handle.
  2. Once potatoes are cooled, cut potatoes in half. Using a small spoon, carefully remove a small amount from center, leaving a rim around each potato. Set reserved potato aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat; set a side.
  5. In a bowl, add the potatoes reserve, greek yogurt and mash until creamy. Add 2 tbsp. cheese, salt, pepper and paprika. Mix until combined.
  6. Stuff the potatoes with the filling. Sprinkle the tops of the potatoes with remaining cheese, scallions and bacon.
  7. Bake for approx 10 minutes until cheese is melted and potatoes are warmed.
  8. Serve with ranch dressing, sour cream or my favorite adding a dash of hot sauce!
