This was originally a weight watchers recipe, which i thought was pretty good. I modified it however to make it better (but a little less weight friendly). This is definitely a guy pleaser, so if like me you have meat and potatoes men that you need to feed, this is a relatively easy go to side.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wrap potatoes in aluminum foil and bake at 400 for 45 minutes to an hour (until cooked through).
  2. Reduce heat to 375.
  3. Meanwhile cut potatoes in half lengthwise.
  4. Scoop inside of potatoes into a large bowl, making sure to leave about 1/4 an inch of potato on the skins.
  5. In bowl combine remaining ingredients and mash potato mixture to desired smoothness (i prefer mine a little lumpy). If mixture is too dry, add more yogurt or a little milk until you achieve desired creaminess. Also, feel free to vary the herbs and spices to your own personal taste.
  6. Scoop potato mixture back into skin shells. Place potato halves on baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes or until top starts to turn golden.

An old time favorite that I forgot about until I saw this. I used light sour cream instead of the yogurt and mayo. I also used a mexican cheese blend (because that's what I had on hand). A great addition to my recipe file!
