CHEESY POTATO BAKE





Baking is becoming my addiction. Less Cleanup, less preparation and less time consuming. What else can you ask for when you want a quick and yummy dinner, but don't want to break yourself? This dish is my savior on days when cooking is the last thing I want to do. 


So let's make these beautiful Easy Cheesy Potato Bake.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 large russet potatoes
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 cups finely chopped spinach
  • 1 cup greek yogurt (Substitute: Plain Full-fat yogurt)
  • 1 cup  shredded cheese ( I used sharp cheddar)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder (Optional)
  • Salt and Black pepper to taste 
  • 1 tablespoon butter (optional)
  • 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped


METHOD:

  • Spray or brush potatoes with cooking oil and oven bake them at 425F  for 45-60 minutes until it gets properly cooked.Turn them half-way for even baking. You can lay them directly on the oven rack or on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. For proper baking prick the potatoes with a fork in few places. This will allow the steam to escape from a baking potato.
  • While the potatoes bake, make the filling. In a pan heat some cooking oil and add garlic and onion, Once the onions are golden brown add finely chopped spinach. Let it cook for 2 - 3 minutes. Do not overcook else spinach will lose its green  color. Add salt. Now set it aside and let it cool.
  • Once the potatoes are baked, scoop out the flesh to make room for fillings.
  • In a large bowl add the vegetables, add the potato flesh, add 1/2cup cheese ( remaining will be used later), greek yogurt, butter, garlic powder. At this point add more salt and pepper as per your taste.
  • Now fill the potatoes with the filling and top it with cheese as much as you want ;-)
  • Bake the potatoes again at the same temperature for 15-20 minutes more until the cheese melt.
  • Serve them immediately.
