Baked potatoes are a great low fat meal, however we often then over-load this with an excessively large amount of high fat filling. Combining the filling with the potato can help reduce the need to have larger amounts of fillings.

Ingredients (serves 2)

Baking potato 1 per person
2 tsp low-fat cream cheese
30g blue cheese
2 spring onions chopped

Preparation + cook time:  1 ¼ hours



  1. Bake the potato in preheated oven (180oC)  for at least an hour until tender.
  2. Once cooked, cut in half and scoop out the flesh. Add the flesh with the remaining ingredients in a small mixing bowl.
  3. Whilst you mix the flesh with the filling, place the potato skin side up and spray with a little olive oil cooking spray, or brush lightly with a small amount of olive oil and place under the grill to crisp up.
  4. Refill the potato skins with the filling and place under a medium grill for a few mins.
  5. Serve with salad.

This recipe of baked potato works well with a number of fillings. Adding mushrooms or lean bacon to this recipe works great. If you are watching your weight use strong flavoured cheeses such as blue cheese, so that you don’t need as much.
Flavour the oil used to brush the potato skins with chilli or paprika for a little extra kick.
