4 baking potatoes (8 oz. each)
7/8 cup lowfat cottage cheese
2 tablespoons whole milk
2 tablespoons minced onion
1/4 teaspoon paprika
Conventional cooking time: 30-45 minutes. Microwave cooking time: 5-10 minutes.
Scrub potatoes and remove any blemishes.
To bake by conventional method:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place potatoes in oven and bake until tender, about 30-40 minutes.
To bake by microwave method:
Pierce potatoes by using fork prongs. Cover potatoes with waxed paper. Heat on high until tender, about 5-10 minutes.
To stuff potatoes:
Slice each potato in half, lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop out pulp, leaving about 1/4-inch thick shells, saving pulp. Blend cheese, milk and onion. Add potato pulp; mix until light and fluffy. Fill potato halves with mixture. Sprinkle paprika over potatoes. Return to oven or microwave to reheat, for a few minutes, if desired.
