Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 400ºF.
  • Pierce potatoes in several places with tip of sharp knife. Bake 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until tender. Cool 10 min. Cut potatoes lengthwise in half; scoop out centers into medium bowl, leaving 1/4-inch-thick shells.
  • Add broth, 1/2 cup cheese, onions, sour cream and mustard to potato pulp; beat with mixer until blended. Spoon into potato shells; top with remaining cheese and paprika.
  • Bake 20 min. or until heated through.

Makeover - How We Did It

We trimmed 40 calories and 3g of fat per serving by preparing this delicious recipe with reduced fat cheddar cheese, substituting reduced fat sour cream for the margarine, and replacing the sautéed chopped onions with sliced green onions to both eliminate the cooking step and add color to the twice-baked potatoes.

Shortcut

The potatoes can be "baked" in the microwave instead of the oven. Pierce potatoes as directed, then microwave on HIGH 12 to 14 min. or until tender, turning after 6 min. Let stand 5 min. Stuff potato shells, then bake in conventional oven as directed.

Special Extra

Prepare using smoked paprika.
