Ingredients Needed:

  • Potatoes
  • Butter
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Plain Greek yogurt

Potatoes: Russet potatoes work best for these. I used 6 medium size for these. Try and stick with same size/amount to work with the ingredients listed in the recipe.

Cheese: We like a sharp cheddar variety for these potatoes. However, go with your favorite.

Plain Greek Yogurt: If you wish, replace this with sour cream.

How to Make:

  • Bake the potatoes in a preheated oven until fully cooked. This should take about an hour. If you are looking for a quicker alternative, you can also cook them in the microwave or air fryer.
  • Once they are done, let them cool for about 15 minutes. You want them to still be warm, but, don’t burn yourself!
  • Cut the warm potatoes in half and scoop out the insides. Place the shells to the side.
  • In a bowl, mash the insides of the potatoes with butter, sour cream and half of the cheese.
  • Fill the empty shells with the mashed potatoes and top with the remaining cheese.
  • Return the to the oven and bake for additional time.

Remember: If you are baking the potatoes, be sure to reduce the temperature of the oven before baking the filled shells.
