PostSubject: Healthy Recipes.   Wed Feb 01, 2012 1:50 pm

I have been trying to eat better lately. Especially after losing a few pounds from not feeling well. I don't want to gain it back!

I found this on the food network.

TWICE BAKED POTATOS:

These potatoes still taste buttery and rich but are much lighter than the full fat version by using a small amount of butter to saute sweet leeks and some chive flavored reduced fat cream cheese.
Ingredients

4 medium russet potatoes, about 6 ounces each
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
Kosher salt
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 leeks, (white and light green parts), halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
Freshly ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons freshly chopped thyme
4 ounces 1/3-less fat chive-and-onion flavored cream cheese
1/2 cup skim milk
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, plus extra for garnish

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Rub the potatoes with the oil and season generously with kosher salt. Place on a baking sheet and bake until the potatoes are very tender on the inside and crisp on the outside, about 1 hour, 15 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the butter in a large nonstick skillet set over medium heat. Add the leeks and season with salt and pepper, cook until soft, about 6 to 8 minutes. Add the garlic and thyme and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Cool slightly.

Cut lengthwise, opening down the center of each potato, stopping about 1-inch from each end. Scoop out the insides into a large bowl, keeping about 1/4-inch shell of potato next to the skin.

Add the leek mixture, cream cheese and milk to the potato and mash well with a fork until combined but slightly chunky. Stir in the chopped parsley. Spoon the filling back into the potato shells, about 1/2 cup of filling for each potato and place back on the baking sheet. Bake until heated through and the tops are lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes. Garnish with extra parsley.

Notes

This is a great side dish for any time of year and for special gatherings, like Thanksgiving. Simply double the recipe, or halve the potatoes after the first bake and the dish serves more.

As I had stated at the Legendary Times forum, I lost over fifty pounds for my surgery. I gained almost 30 back and have also started to clamp down a bit on how I eat. I love food, but do like the fact of not being as fat as I was.

Thank you for that recipe as I will have to try it. I will look around for some healthy recipes to share here.

One tip for those wanting to lose weight: Corn syrup is a very complex sugar and does not digest as quickly as cane sugar does. If you have to have sweetened foods, look for the ones with cane sugar. If it says corn sugar it is still corn syrup. One will gain a lot of weight consuming corn syrup so watch your intake of it.
