We barely noticed the difference in this lightened-up version of our favorite dish. We tried it with friends and loved it. —Sonya Labbe, West Hollywood, California

Ingredients

  • 20 baby Yukon Gold potatoes (2 pounds)
  • 6 ounces fat-free cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. Place potatoes in a Dutch oven and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook just until tender, 8-10 minutes. Drain.
  2. When cool enough to handle, cut each potato in half lengthwise. Scoop out the pulp, leaving thin shells. Remove 1/3 cup pulp (discard or save for another use).
  3. In a large bowl, mash the remaining pulp with cream cheese. Add sour cream and half of the bacon. Stir in the cheeses, green onions, salt and pepper; spoon into potato shells.
  4. Place in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Sprinkle with remaining bacon. Bake, uncovered, at 400° until heated through, 15-20 minutes.
