The perfect appetizer for game day... or any day!

Sometimes potatoes get a bad rap in the health food industry. Actually, potatoes can be pretty darn nutritious when cooked the right way and enjoyed in moderation. They are packed with potassium and fiber and are naturally fat- and cholesterol-free. With that knowledge, you can enjoy our 5-Ingredient Healthy Stuffed Potato Skins sans guilt!

We have utilized chicken, turkey bacon, and low-fat cheese in this recipe and added broccoli to ensure that you’re getting the healthiest potato skins we could come up with! This would be an awesome game-day appetizer or paired as a side with BBQ Chicken.
