Twice-Baked Red Potatoes

Total Time

Prep: 30 min. Bake: 25 min.

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.

    This was awesome! I used roasted garlic and herbs since it is what I had and will do so again. Also made a mistake and mixed the cheese into the mashed potatoes so just put a little more in the top. So good!

    Flavor Bomb after Flavor Bomb! A keeper recipe all around. Made half the recipe because it’s just the two of us. Should have made the whole thing! Only one change. I used the Onion/Herb Blend seasoning ‘cuz it’s what I have on hand right now. Ms. Valerie Cox, You Madam, hit it out of the park on this one!

    Curious to know - what and how much goes into the garlic herb blend?

    Yummy potatoes. I added finely chopped bacon. Everything is better with bacon. ??

    I loved these twice baked potatoes! I've never put yogurt in potatoes but it was delicious. The Monterey Jack was so good in them.

    Looking for a side for just one, and healthy for me, I found this recipe fills the bill. Easy to cut down using just one potato. I loved the "new" flavors and I know I will make this again... and again. This volunteer field editor gives Valerie's recipe five stars.
