Twice Baked Greek Potatoes


If you love feta cheese, you will LOVE these potatoes. I adapted this recipe from one I found on the Weight Watchers website, and it was more than I could have ever hoped for. The serving size is 2 potato halves, for only 5 points! I find one half to be enough, as they are so rich and filling. I made these 3 times in a week I loved them so much and they reheat beautifully. My friend could hardly believe they were not so bad for you. 

I can't wait to try the same recipe with blue cheese. How perfect would that be with some barbecue chicken?? 

-Ingredients-

4 small potatoes (5 oz each)
1/2 c feta cheese
1/2  c fat free sour cream
1 tbsp Country Crock Light
1 tbsp green onions (or chives)

-Directions-

1. Wash the potatoes and poke holes all over with a fork. Bake potatoes in the oven at 425* for 45 minutes. 
2. Remove potatoes, turn oven down to 350*. Let potatoes cool.
3. Once cool enough to handle, scoop the flesh out of the potatoes into a large bowl. Mix in the cheese, sour cream, country crock and half the green onions.
4. Scoop the mixture evenly back into the potato skins.
5. Bake until browned, about 15 minutes. Top with remaining green onions.

Weight Watchers Points Plus: 5 (for 2 halves)
3 (for one half)

  3. Made these tonight-- except we broke the potato skins so ended up just mashing all of the potato and cooking the mixture in some ramekins. Still super delicious!!! Thanks :) You have a new fan
