“Skip the bun and serve all of your favorite cheeseburger ingredients—beef, cheese, tomatoes, red onions and lettuce—with baked potatoes for a hearty and easy dinner recipe that kids and adults will love. Feel free to swap out the ground beef for ground turkey or tofu crumbles.”

Ingredients

    • 4 medium russet potatoes (about 8 ounces each)
    • ½ cup low-fat mayonnaise
    • 8 ounces cooked ground beef, warmed
    • ½ cup shredded iceberg lettuce
    • ½ cup diced tomato
    • ¼ cup sliced red onion
    • 4 teaspoons shredded Colby Jack cheese

Directions

  • 1 Pierce potatoes all over with a fork. Microwave on Medium, turning once or twice, until soft, about 20 minutes. (Alternatively, bake potatoes at 425°F until tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour.) Transfer to a clean cutting board and let cool slightly.
  • 2 Holding them with a kitchen towel to protect your hands, make a lengthwise cut to open the potato, but don't cut all the way through. Pinch the ends to expose the flesh.
  • 3 Top each potato with some mayonnaise, beef, lettuce, tomato, red onion and cheese. Serve warm.
