Yield: 12 potato skins (Each potato skins is 1 point for purple, 2 points for blue and green)

  • 6 medium russet potatoes
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 5 slices center cut bacon
  • 4 oz. reduced-fat cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 3 green onions
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Clean the potatoes and dry them off with a paper towel. Lay potatoes on a baking sheet and lightly spray with no-stick cooking spray. Flip them over and spray the other side too.

  3. Bake 40-50 minutes (depending on the size of the potato) or until tender.

  4. Allow the potatoes to cool slightly, then slice them in half lengthwise. Use a spoon to scoop out part of the insides. I used a scale to make sure each potato weighed 1.5 oz.

  5. Melt butter and brush the inside of the potatoes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  6. Sprinkle the insides of the potatoes with the cheddar cheese, bacon and green onions.

  7. Return to the oven 3-5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
