Gluten-Free Stuffed Potatoes

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. 


Ingredients:

(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
Directions: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees 
  2. Wrap potatoes in foil, pierce with a fork, and bake potatoes in preheated oven for 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile, place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
