Ready In:
1hr 10mins
8 potato halves




  • Scrub potatoes, prick with fork, bake in 400 degree oven for 1 hour.
  • When cool enough to handle, cut potatoes in half lengthwise, scoop out potato pulp into large bowl, leaving shells intact.
  • Combine pulp with mayo, cheddar, green pepper, scallions and tuna. Mix well.
  • Stuff potato shells.
  • Bake at 400 for 10 minutes.
  • (Can also drizzle a little melted butter over the top and pass under the broiler until sizzling and browned, but this is considered rather decadent. You decide.).

    Mmmm! Charlie the Tuna would be a happy camper with this recipe! I used light mayo and light cheese. I also swapped out the green pepper for broccoli which I steamed before mixing with the other ingredients. It was so easy, so healthy and great tasting! Thanks vivmom!

    I loved these! They were soooo filling too, always a plus in trying to feed a family. I must confess - I cheated on my time. I "baked" my potatoes in the microwave and finished them off in the oven once they were stuffed. Fabulous recipe, one we'll be using frequently as it's very budget friendly!

    My family gobbled these up tonight for dinner. We had a long day out and needed something rather easy and light. These have great flavor. I didnt add any green peppes because we dont care for them much. Didn't have any scallions so i chopped up some white onion. Thanks for the recipe.

    I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked this! I baked the potatoes and stuffed the shells, then froze them in a plastic container. Several days later, I thawed them out, then placed in a microwave and cooked on high about 15-20 seconds. They were so good and hit the spot! Thank you Viv! Made for Freezer Tag!


This is the saddest iteration of recipezaar yet. What a shame. (shakes head, blows nose, walks away.)
