How creamy and gorgeous does this look?!

Ingredients

  • 4 small russet potatoes scrubbed and dried
  • 4 tsps grapeseed oil
  • 1/8 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • 3 tbsps nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 green onions, sliced
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Fine sea salt

Steps

  1. Adjust your toaster oven’s cooking rack to the bottom or middle position and preheat to 400°F on the BAKE setting.
  2. Use a sharp knife or fork to stab the potatoes on each side. Rub potatoes with 1 teaspoon of the oil, place on a roasting pan, and bake until a knife slides easily into each potato, about 35 to 45 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes.
  3. Remove the potatoes and increase the toaster oven’s temperature to 425°F. Carefully slice the hot potatoes in half lengthwise, allow them to cool for 5 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Then scoop out the flesh leaving a thin 1/4-inch shell inside the skins.
  4. Combine the remaining oil and paprika. Brush both sides of the potato skins with oil and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Place the potato halves with the flesh facing the pan and skins facing up. Cook until crispy and browned around the edges, about 8 to 12 minutes.
  6. Flip potato skins over and fill each one with cheese. Bake for 5 minutes more or until the cheese is melty and bubbly. Top skins with dollops of plain Greek yogurt and sliced green onions, serve warm.
