Before my baby was born, I was in nesting mode and made lots of freezable recipes like these creamy red potatoes. The yogurt is a healthy swap for sour cream. —Valerie Cox, Secretary, Maryland

  • 6 large red potatoes (about 10 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup 1% milk
  • 1/2 cup fat-free plain yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic-herb seasoning blend
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Scrub potatoes; pierce each several times with a fork. Microwave, uncovered, on high until just tender, 10-12 minutes, turning once.
  2. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut each lengthwise in half. Scoop out pulp, leaving 1/4-in.-thick shells. Mash pulp with all ingredients except cheese.
  3. Spoon into potato shells. Top with cheese. Bake until heated through, 25-30 minutes. If desired, broil 2-3 minutes until cheese is light golden brown.
