  • 1 large baking potato
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil, divided
  • 6 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary or dash dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  1. Scrub and pierce potato; rub with 1/2 teaspoon oil. Place garlic on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Drizzle with remaining oil. Wrap foil around garlic. Place potato and garlic on a baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes. Remove garlic; bake potato until tender, 45 minutes longer.
  2. When cool enough to handle, cut potato in half lengthwise. Scoop out the pulp, leaving thin shells.
  3. Squeeze softened garlic into a small bowl; add potato pulp and mash. Stir in remaining ingredients. Spoon into potato shells. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, at 350° until heated through, 25-30 minutes.
