Loaded Potatoes

I saw an add for loaded potatoes and my mouth started drooling!
There has got to be a healither way to makes these guys right?

I went to the kitchen to find out.  Succeed I did.  The whole family gave it 5 stars.   Here is my recipe for a better loaded potato:

5 potatos washed
1/2 c. plain non-fat Greek yogurt
1/4 c. Habinaro cheese
4 TB reduced sodium real bacon bits
seasoning of choice to taste (I used Ranch flavored popcorn seasoning, or use Mrs Dash no salt seasonings)

Cut potatoes in half and cook in microwave for 6 minutes.  Let cool enough to scoop out most of the potato from the skin and place in a mixing bowl.  Combine all ingredients and mix well.   Fill potato skins with mixture.  *optional- lightly sprinkle more cheese on top.
Place on lined cookie sheet and put in the oven on Broil untill the tops of the potato goldens.
Cool slightly and enjoy!

By substituting the sour cream for Greek yogurt we've reduced fat, calories and added a complete source of protein.  We've keep our cheese in proportion but still enough to taste.  Which is why I used Habinaro cheese, it gives more flavor so you can get away with using less.  And the reduced sodium bacon bits helps keep our salt in check.  So you can enjoy a little better some comfort food.

p.s. We're still heading to just having some glitches thanks for your patience.
