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