Spanakopita Loaded Potatoes
1 h 45 m
“In this healthy take on twice-baked potatoes, spinach, feta, garlic and oregano are stuffed into the potato shells along with the mashed potatoes. Serve with steak or chicken sprinkled with oregano or marjoram.”
4 medium russet potatoes (8-10 ounces each), scrubbed
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried
⅓ cup reduced-fat cream cheese
¾ teaspoon ground pepper
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup crumbled feta cheese, divided
1Preheat oven to 400°F.
2Pierce potatoes in several places with a fork. Bake directly on the center rack until tender, 50 to 60 minutes. Let stand until cool enough to handle.
3Meanwhile, heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 2 to 4 minutes. Add spinach, garlic and oregano; cook, stirring, until hot, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat.
4Reduce oven temperature to 375°F.
5Cut the potatoes in half and scoop the insides into a bowl. Place the skins in a 9-by-13-inch pan. Add cream cheese, pepper and salt to the bowl. Beat with a hand mixer or mash with a potato masher until smooth. Stir in the spinach mixture and ½ cup feta. Stuff each potato skin with about ¾ cup of the filling. Top each with 1 tablespoon of the remaining feta.
6Bake until the filling is steaming and the feta is browned, 25 to 35 minutes.
