Piled high with ham, cheese, and sour cream, this filling dish makes for an easy weeknight supper when paired with a salad. Using a microwave to cook the potatoes first saves more than an hour of baking time.
4 baking potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1 cup diced 33%-less-sodium ham (about 6 ounces)
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese, divided
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions, divided
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
How to Make It
Pierce potatoes with a fork; arrange in a circle on paper towels in microwave oven. Microwave at high 16 minutes or until done, rearranging potatoes after 8 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.
Cut each potato in half lengthwise; scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/4-inch-thick shell. Combine potato pulp, ham, 1/2 cup cheese, 1/3 cup green onions, sour cream, and pepper.
Spoon the potato mixture into shells. Combine 1/2 cup cheese and remaining green onions, and sprinkle over potatoes. Place potatoes on a baking sheet; broil 4 minutes or until golden.
With addition of paprika, coarse mustard, a tablespoon of whipped butter & a combination of cheeses—Swiss, sharp, and pepper jack—, topped off with a dose of hot sauce, this was delicious! Served with steamed broccoli and a small fruit salad
A great way to use leftover ham! I added a little bit of cream cheese also! Very good and my family loved the potatoes. Served with a spinach salad. Easy weeknight recipe. I baked the potatoes in the oven instead of the microwave...I think they taste better that way!
