Cheesy bacon stuffed potato skins (Slimming World friendly)

These are a really delicious side dish, Makes a change from ordinary baked potatoes and are really easy to make.

I've had similar in restaurants but they are loaded with sour cream which makes them definitely NOT Slimming World friendly! This version gives you all the flavour but none of the fat. If you want them even more cheesy you could even melt your healthy extra cheese over the top.


Cheesy bacon stuffed potato skins

2 large baking potatoes
1/2  a 250g tub Arla garlic and herb quark (or use plain and add some garlic and herbs to it )
4 smoked bacon medallions (cooked and cut into small pieces)
chopped chives or green from spring onions.
low calorie spray oil.
salt and pepper


Wash the potato and while damp sprinkle with lots of salt to help it get a nice crispy skin then cut into it just a little way all around the outside (this helps it break evenly in half after cooking. )

Bake at gas 6/200/400 for about an hour until when lightly squeezed the potato is soft and the skin is crispy them remove from the oven but don't turn the oven off you will need it again in a minute.

Cut in half along where you cut into the potato and using a spoon scrape all the cooked potato into a shallow dish. Add the quark and mash very well with a fork it doesnt have to be smooth some lumps are ok and add texture. Add some salt and pepper and mix again then taste if it needs more seasoning. Mix in the bacon and half of the chives or spring onion greens then refill the potato skins.

Spray the tops with a little spray oil then place back in the oven for another 20-30 minutes until the tops are slightly browned.

Sprinkle with the rest of the chives or spring onions.

Serves 2-4 and are syn free
