Recipe Twice Baked Potatoes

Ingredients :

1 slice center-cut bacon, cooked & chopped {omit for vegetarian}
⅛ tsp garlic powder
⅛ tsp paprika
¼ tsp salt-free all-purpose seasoning
⅛ tsp salt
1 large baking potato {about ⅓ lb.}
½ cup cottage cheese
¼ cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese, divided
1 green onion, sliced
fat-free plain yogurt, optional

Instructions :

1) Preheat oven to 400°F.
2) Prick the potato with a fork a couple of times. Wrap in foil, and bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour.
3) Carefully unwrap potato. When cool enough to handle, slice potato in half.
4) Scoop insides of potato out and transfer into a bowl. Make sure to leave a ¼ inch border around the potato skin. Set potato skins aside.
5) Mash the scooped out potato with a potato masher or a fork. Stir in cottage cheese, 2 TBSP cheddar cheese, green onion, garlic powder, paprika, all-purpose seasoning, and salt. Be sure to stir well.
6) Put mixture back into potato shells, and top with remaining 2 TBSP cheddar.
7) Bake for 10-15 minutes until heated through and cheese is bubbly & lightly browned.
8) Sprinkle with bacon & parsley, and serve with plain yogurt if desired. Enjoy!
