Who doesn't love twice baked potatoes? With this recipe you get all the goodness without all of the heart killing fat, it's win-win. I oven baked the spud because I prefer it over microwaved. Used veggie ham and fat free Swiss Cheese. I ground in a bit of black pepper into the mix and some 1/2 Salt before stirring it all together. The end result was a very hearty, healthy, and filling lunch that was simply delicious.
