- Place in a shallow baking dish and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned.
They are good to be low-cal and low-fat. But they miss something. My BF said bacon but it would not be low-fat. I used fresh chives. But next time I'll add more. I used fatfree yogurt. Thanks Mille :) Made for Holiday tag
Mmmm-mmm good... DH loved this healthy version. Thanks Mille !
A very good substitute for my usual butter and sour cream-laden spuds now that I must watch the sodium. I only made one potato for myself and added Mrs. Dash and chives. I skipped the mozzarella since it would have been such a small amount for 1 spud. I'll make this again so I can try some different seasonings.
