CORE Stuffed Potato

Serves: 2

Difficulty: Easy

  • 2 potatoes, approx 180g
  • 30 g diced ham or bacon
  • 2 tsp chopped parsley
  • 2 tsp chopped spring onion or chives
  • 4 TB lite cottage cheese
  • ground pepper

Optional - add some finely chopped capsicum, mushroom, pineapple, corn etc.

Note - if family members are not keen on cottage cheese, substutite 2 TB of grated cheddar to their stuffing instead of the cottage cheese.

Wash and dry the potatoes.
Bake at 180*C for 1h 15 mins.
Slice a "lid" off the top of the potatoes, just under 1cm thick
Using a teaspoon, scoop out the potato flesh, leaving a shell of about 5mm.
Mash the potato with a fork and mix all other ingredients through the potato
Put the mix back into the shells, pushing down with a back of teaspoon (there will probably be a little left over).
Wrap stuffed potatoes in alfoil and return to oven for another 20 mins.
Serve with more vegies or salad and a grilled piece of lean meat
Not on Core? Each stuffed potato with cottage cheese is 2 points (3 points for low fat cheddar)

I have been on the Core Plan for a couple of months and I'm having difficulty working out recipes. I have just spent two hours on DazeyDee's Core Recipe Blog site and some of the recipes are absolutely mind boggling. I have copied enough for next week's menu, and I'll post another comment when I have actually tasted the recipes. Anyone who is having any trouble with core recipes really should go to the blog and solve their problems. Thank you so much, DazeyDee. You are a lifesaver. I don't know what an HTML tag is, so I haven't used one.
