Recipe Details


  • 4 5 to 6-ounce Russet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup Nonfat plain yogurt
  • 4 teaspoons Healthy buttery spread
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic or seasoned salt
  • Snipped fresh chives or green onion tops
  • 16 slices Turkey pepperoni
  • 1/4 cup Warm pasta sauce
  • 1/4 cup Italian blend shredded cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Minced green pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Sliced green onion


Cut a wedge out of each potato about 1/8-inch wide and 1-inch deep and place in a microwave-safe dish. Microwave on HIGH, uncovered, for 10 to12 minutes depending on strength of microwave. Use oven mitts to remove dish from microwave. Carefully make a slit in the top of each potato and fluff with a fork. Stir 1 tablespoon yogurt, 1 teaspoon buttery spread and 1/8 teaspoon salt into each potato; sprinkle with chives if desired. Place 16 slices turkey pepperoni on a plate and microwave on HIGH for 45 to 60 seconds to crisp. Top each seasoned potato with pasta sauce, cheese, green pepper and green onion. Microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes to melt cheese, then, top with coarsely crumbled pepperoni slices
