MEAL IN A POTATO

This makes a fun side dish or hearty snack. To make it into a true meal, add leftover meat, poultry, fish, or mashed beans, and vegetables like chopped spinach or broccoli to the potato.
If you have a child who is older and helps to get dinner started, this is a nice recipe to suggest. (To save on time: "bake" the potatoes in a microwave.)

45 minutes
Serves: 4
 

4 large potatoes
1 Tbsp oil
4 Tbsp grated lowfat cheese (mozzarella or cheddar)
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp of nutmeg


1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Scrub potatoes well. Dry with a towel. Rub the outside with oil. Bake about 45 minutes - 1 hour until potato is soft.

2. Cut off a cap lengthwise. Scoop out some of the pulp and mix with the cheese, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Spoon back into potato. Replace cap. Serve.
