Salmon-Stuffed Potatoes

Here's a tasty twist on twice-baked potatoes from Carolyn Schmeling of Brookfield, Wisconsin. The spuds are stuffed with a rich mixture of potato, sour cream and smoked salmon, then sprinkled with chives. They're hearty enough to be served as a main dish alongside a salad or bowl of soup.

    Prep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 medium baking potatoes (about 8 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 ounces smoked salmon or lox, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 4 teaspoons minced chives

Directions

  • Scrub and pierce potatoes. Bake at 400° for 40-60 minutes or until tender. Cool until easy to handle. Cut a thin slice off the top of each potato and discard. Scoop out the pulp, leaving a thin shell.
  • In a bowl, mash the pulp with sour cream. Stir in the buttermilk, butter salt, and pepper. Gently fold in salmon. Spoon into potato shells. Sprinkle with chives.

    Hella good. Boyfriend and I made this together and it was one of the best potato related recipes I've ever eaten.
