Yukon Gold Potatoes with Gorgonzola and Pancetta

First developed in Canada in the early 1980s, Yukon gold potatoes are a cross between a North American white-fleshed potato and a yellow-fleshed South American potato. Their smooth texture and buttery flavor are well suited to the rich Gorgonzola filling.

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 stuffed potato)

Ingredients

  • 6 large Yukon gold potatoes (about 3 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 3 ounces pancetta, finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped chives

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375°.

Pierce potatoes with a fork, and bake at 375° for 1 hour or until tender. Cool potatoes slightly.

Combine sour cream and cheese in a small bowl; partially mash with a fork.

Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add diced pancetta; cook 2 minutes. Add garlic; cook 1 minute.

Split the potatoes lengthwise, cutting to, but not through, other side. Spoon 2 tablespoons cheese mixture into each potato. Top each serving with 4 teaspoons pancetta mixture and 1 1/2 teaspoons chives.
