Easy peasy.

I love having leftover for lunches.  With these potatoes, you can have a light lunch by only enjoying a half a potato with small salad, or a leftover vegetable side.

Variations to the Mushroom Swiss Twice Baked Potatoes recipe:

  1. Healthy mix-ins: Try spinach or white beans (or both!) if you want to increase the fiber and nutrients in this recipe.
  2. I added green salsa for just a hint of acidity and spice to elevate flavors.  1-2 tsp lemon juice would do the trick too.  Taste test and increase onion powder as needed.
  3. If you want to reduce cooking time, try microwaving the potatoes for about 5 minutes before baking.  This should reduce baking time by about 15 minutes.

Ingredients
  • 4 medium russet potatoes or 2 jumbos
  • 2 splashes olive oil, divided

  5. Mix the potato with mushrooms, garlic, sour cream, salsa, salt, pepper, onion powder, and ¼ cup Swiss cheese.
  6. Fill each potato shell with the mushroom mixture and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Top evenly with remaining cheese.
