TOTAL TIME: Prep: 1 hour + cooling Bake: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 medium baking potatoes
  • 1 whole garlic bulb
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary or 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Paprika

Directions

  • 1. Bake the potatoes at 400° for 45-55 minutes or until tender. Meanwhile remove papery outer skin from garlic (do not peel or separate cloves). Place garlic in a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Frizzle with oil. Wrap foil around garlic.
  • 2. Bake at 400° for 30-35 minutes or until softened. Cool for 10 minutes. Cut top off garlic head, leaving root end intact. Squeeze softened garlic into a small bowl; set aside.
  • 3. Cut a thin slice off the top of each potato and discard. Scoop out the pulp, leaving a thin shell. In a large bowl, mash the pulp with butter. Stir in the milk, buttermilk, rosemary, salt, pepper and roasted garlic.
  • 4. Pipe or spoon into potato shells. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 20-25 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with paprika. Yield: 6 servings.
