Better Home Cooking Basics: #61 Top Baked Potatoes with Greek Yogurt Instead of Butter or Sour Cream.

If you love to load up a baked potato with gobs of butter or sour cream (like we do at our potato-loving house) this tip is for you. Swap out those fatty condiments for protein rich Greek yogurt instead. You'll get all the creaminess with less guilt & some nutrition to boot.

Want to take your baked potato to the next level? It's easy & tasty. Use this simple recipe to add some fresh & creamy flavor to your next baked potato.

  • 1/2 a cup of plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 handful of fresh basil leaves (or whatever fresh herb you have on hand - chives would work really well)
  • 1 generous pinch of sea salt
  • 1/2 a pinch black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil 
Make it!
  1. Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor. 
  2. Blend until smooth-ish. 
  3. Dollop on top of a baked potato.
  4. Store in an airtight glass container for up to 1 week in the fridge.
