Try this dressed-up version of stuffed potato skins for a great side dish that no one will ever guess is light! Janet Steiger - Bucyrus, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 small red potatoes (about 3/4 pound)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 center-cut bacon strips
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat Italian salad dressing
  • 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • Reduced-fat sour cream, optional

Directions

  • 1. Place potatoes in a small microwave-safe dish; add water. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 8-9 minutes or until tender, stirring once.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain. Crumble bacon and set aside.
  • 3. With the bottom of a glass, flatten potatoes to 1/2-in. thickness. In the same skillet coated with cooking spray, cook potatoes in dressing over medium heat for 2-3 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown.
  • 4. Turn potatoes; sprinkle with cheese and reserved bacon. Cover and cook 2-3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Serve with sour cream if desired. Yield: 2 servings.

"I give it a fair star rating because the Italian dressing kind of ruined the taste. It was sour tasting. The next time I will fry them in olive oil and butter."
