These baked potatoes are heavy on flavor but light on cals!

Having a summer barbecue doesn’t have to mean high calorie, fattening foods. Opt instead for clean-eating recipes that are full on flavor without the extra calories, like these satisfying Twice-Baked Potatoes! They’re easy prep and only 104 calories per serving. We love these cheesy potatoes with barbecued chicken and Southern Style Sweet Tea.

  • 4 baking potatoes large, rinsed and scrubbed, recommend russet
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • kosher or sea salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt plain, fat-free
  • 1 tablespoon milk low-fat
  • 3/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese reduced-fat, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon green onion thinly sliced


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Using a fork, pierce potatoes once on each side, about 1/2" deep. Rub the outside of each potato with olive or canola oil, about 1/2 teaspoon per potato. Sprinkle a little kosher or sea salt on potato skins. Place potatoes on a cookie sheet and bake until tender, approximately 1 hour.
  • Cut each potato in half lengthwise. Scoop out the potato and place in a medium mixing bowl. Leave a thin layer of potato behind to prevent skins from tearing. Add 1/4 teaspoon paprika, black pepper, salt to taste, yogurt, milk, 1/2 cup cheese, and green onion to potato. Use an electric mixer or potato masher to combine ingredients.
  • Evenly divide potato mixture into shells, sprinkle with remaining cheddar cheese and paprika. Return potatoes to the oven and bake 15 minutes.

  1. There is no way this is 100 cals a serving.

    A medium russet potato (i just weighed one from my kitchen) is 257 grams. That makes each potato 249 calories. That's a total of 996 calories, divided by 8 is 124 calories from the potatoes alone. Add the cheese and the yogurt, and you're up to 1300 calories for the whole, or 150 cals each.

    1. Kara, We entered the data on For 1 medium (plain)potato the calories are 129. Divide that by half and they are 64.5. The calorie count is correct.

  2. Hi, made these tonight and realized as I was sitting at the table eating I forgot to put the milk in. And after reading the recipe, the milk is in the ingredients but I don't see it in the instructions, so easy to miss!
