Skinny Stuffed Parmesan Potatoes

January 12, 2014Teresa

Gluten Free Living – 2014

Skinny Stuffed Parmesan Potatoes are awesome. These delectable potatoes turned out to be some of the BEST I’ve ever eaten! I mean they were mouthwatering, sumptuous, and amazing! In fact, I wanted to eat a whole lot more than I did. But the best thing about this recipe is that it is healthy, low calorie and gluten free. This skinny version of stuffed potatoes rocks!

These double stuffed baked potatoes are topped with roasted minced garlic, salt, pepper, thyme and rosemary. A delicious Italian blend of cheese that includes mozzarella, parmesan, asiago, romano, fontina and provolone is sprinkled over top. The cheese blend and herbs are what makes these potatoes so fantastic. The fontina and provolone cheeses especially add such a delicate and sensational flavor to Skinny Stuffed Parmesan Potatoes.

This healthy, lower calorie version of stuffed potatoes has an incredibly fantastic taste. These potatoes just float down your throat and each bite is succulent and spectacular. This is a marvelous side dish to any main dish meal. However, you can also eat this as a meatless main dish.

I only baked two extra large russet baking potatoes for this recipe and wished I’d baked about 10! They were THAT good. Using only parmesan cheese is okay for this recipe. But you really need to find an Italian cheese blend that includes all of these cheeses to obtain the same flavorful taste. This is a delicious substitute for LOADED baked potatoes which include bacon, cheese, sour cream or pulled pork. This skinnier version does cut down on the calories quite a bit. While they are not calorie-free, they are wonderful!

Hollow out potato shells being careful to leave about a 1/8-inch to 1/4-inch border so the potato shells are firm and don’t fall apart when you stuff them.

Sprinkle each potato shell with salt, pepper, thyme and rosemary – in the amounts you desire. I used a few pinches over each. Dot each potato with roasted minced garlic. You may have to pat the garlic dry with a paper towel before sprinkling over top of potatoes. Sprinkle a few tablespoons of Italian cheese blend over each potato.

    Sorry, I missed how these were “Skinny” 1/2 cup of butter and 1 cup of cheese plus milk and potato??? Sounds awesome, but not skinny!

      I never use whole milk in a recipe unless I specify I’m using whole milk. I generally use 2%. Most stuffed potato recipes are filled with bacon, cheddar cheese, cream cheese, sour cream and other ingredients. While all delicious, they are much higher in calories than this recipe is. You can make these delicious potatoes even skinnier by cutting back on the butter and using less Italian cheese blend. Thanks for stopping by.

    These look really good! I love potatoes so much. What more could you want than potatoes with cheese and butter? Thanks for sharing, Teresa!
