Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, washed
  • 1/2 yellow onion, finely minced
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 pound (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup nonfat quark
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 cup Romano cheese, grated
  • 1 3/4 cups four-cheese blend
  • 1/2 bunch green onion, finely sliced
  • 2 teaspoons paprika

Directions

Preheat oven to 350˚F.

Wash potatoes and prick each one several times with a fork. Lay the potatoes either directly on the oven rack or on a baking sheet. Bake 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until completely tender when poked with a fork. Let cool. When cool, cut in half and carefully scoop out pulp and place in a mixing bowl. Save skins.

Sauté onion and garlic in butter over medium heat until soft but not brown, about 8 minutes. Using the paddle attachment of a stand mixer, an electric hand mixer, or a large whisk, blend the onion mixture with potato pulp, quark, salt and Romano cheese until smooth.

Fill potato skins with mixture. Top with four-cheese blend and bake until the cheese has melted.

Garnish with green onion and a sprinkle of paprika.
