Smashed Loaded Potatoes (Low Fat)

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Maito

We love all the flavors of a loaded baked potato, but not the fat. So I turned that into a low fat smashed (or mashed, if you like) potato side dish. Portions are filling, and are approximately 5.5 grams of fat per person, including the bacon pieces.

Wow great potato recipe Maito. We both enjoyed the potatoes prepared this way. It was quick and really fast to throw together, with amazing results. The potatoes had a lovely texture and great flavor. Thanks for sharing... made for Went to Market Tag game.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Microwave potatoes until fork tender (you could also steam or boil the potatoes as well).
  2. With a masher, smash potatoes a little (I leave the skins on, but feel free to remove them, if you like). Add light butter, and smash a little more. Be careful not to overmix, or potatoes will become glue-y.
  3. Add milk and stir or mash into potatoes. Stir in sour cream, bacon bits and chives. Add salt and pepper, if desired.
  4. Rewarm for about 45 seconds in the microwave, and serve.
