Cooking Light NOVEMBER 2005

  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 stuffed shell)

Ingredients

  • 5 (12-ounce) baking potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups low-fat buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh chives
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375°.

Bake potatoes at 375° for 1 hour or until tender. Cool 10 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Cut each potato in half lengthwise; scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/4-inch-thick shell. Place potato pulp, buttermilk, and remaining ingredients in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Spoon about 1/2 cup potato mixture into each of 8 shells (reserve remaining shells for another use). Arrange stuffed shells on a baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
