Special Equipment Needed

Size Wise

Enjoy eating appetizers at a social occasion, but be mindful of portion size so you don't overdo it on calories.

How to Bake the Potatoes

Baking, or russet, potatoes are the best for baking. Scrub potatoes well, blot dry and rub the skins with a little oil and salt. Prick the skins of the potatoes with a fork so steam can escape. Stand them on ends in muffin pan cups. Bake in 425ºF oven 45 min. to 1 hour or until tender.

Food Facts

Green onions add a deliciously mild onion flavor to foods. To use them, trim off the roots and remove any wilted, brown or damaged tops, then slice and use as much of the white ends and green shoots as you like.


Substitute green peppers for the red peppers.
