Potato Makeover

It all started when I saw a Hungry Girl recipe for twice-baked potatoes (a childhood favorite!). It looked delicious but I didn't have some of the ingredients which prompted me to make a few substitutions, Eventually, the multiple substitutions led me down the path to the mammoth creation you see below. The Four Cheese Supreme Potato Tower is a yummy potato creation stuffed with ricotta, feta, cheddar, and mozzarella which is then topped with tangy yogurt and herbs.

Four Cheese Supreme Potato Tower

1 (8 oz) Yukon Gold potato
1 slice fat free cheddar cheese
1 oz fat free feta cheese
1 tbsp fat free ricotta cheese
1 tbsp Silk unsweetened almond milk
1/2 tsp chives
1 tbsp mozzarella cheese, shredded
Salt and pepper

Optional toppings--
Fat free Greek yogurt
Fresh parsley
Green onions

1. Preheat oven to 375. Prick potato a few times with a fork and place on a microwave safe plate. Microwave 6-8 minutes or until tender.

2. Meanwhile, combine feta, ricotta, cheese slice, milk, and chives in a small bowl.

3. Once potato is cool enough to handle, cut a hole in the top of potato and scoop out the flesh to form a "potato bowl".

4.Add potato flesh to cheese mixture. Stir until well combined and season  with salt and pepper.

5. Carefully scoop cheese/potato mixture into potato bowl. Bowl will be overflowing, don't be afraid to pack it in!

6. Carefully transfer potato to baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray. Bake 20 minutes or until lightly golden. Sprinkle cheddar on top and bake about two minutes more (until cheese is melted).

7. Top potato with a dollop of yogurt, green onions, parsley or whatever toppings you choose.
