Potatoes are one of my favorite naturally gluten-free foods. They are high in potassium, fiber, vitamin C, and a good source of iron. This recipe also adds a good amount of protein and calcium. It's a family favorite at my house...great for Sunday dinners, holidays, or any occasion.
(all of these measurements are subject to change - as this whole recipe is "to taste")
- 5 large baking potatoes
- 8 slices of bacon
- 1 cup FAGE (tastes just like sour cream but healthier + high in protein!)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 5 tablespoons butter
- 3 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Wrap potatoes in foil, pierce with a fork, and bake potatoes in preheated oven for 1 hour.
- Meanwhile, place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
- When potatoes are done allow them to cool for 10 minutes. Slice potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop the flesh into a large bowl; save skins. To the potato flesh add FAGE, milk, butter, salt, pepper, 1/2 cup cheese and 1/2 the green onions. Mix with a hand mixer until well blended and creamy. Spoon the mixture into the potato skins. Top each with remaining cheese, green onions and bacon.
- Bake for another 15 minutes.
In my family, we love serving these with ham & beans and sparking apple cider. I hope you enjoy!
Happy Gluten-Free Dining! ♥ Christie
