30-minute Twice-baked Potatoes

While not truly “baked” twice in the traditional sense, the creamy, cheesy stuffed knock-offs are made in record time. Microwaving the potatoes, instead of oven-baking them, before stuffing them saves tons of time and once stuffed, a hot oven finishes them off the melty cheesy goodness in 10 minutes flat! My better-for-you trick is to use creamed cottage cheese to help create the lusciously creamy texture (and you’d never guess it when eating them). Cheddar cheese, green onions, and garlic heap on the flavor. Serve these as a side to simple meat entrées or with a salad for the perfect light lunch. With 11 grams of protein, and only 150 calories per creamy stuffed potato, these are potato perfection! Serves 4 Ingredients 2 (10-ounce) baking potatoes 2 green onions, green and white parts, sliced 3/4 cup low-fat cottage cheese* 1/2 cup reduced-fat shredded Cheddar cheese, divided 1/4 cup low-fat milk 1/8 teaspoon black pepper 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder Instructions 1.

Place the green onions in a small bowl, cover, and microwave for Continue reading >>

    Hi, I'm very newly diagnosed T2 (in December) and am still trying to get my head round what is and isn't good for blood sugar reduction.
    Am very confused about baked potatoes - should I be eating them or not? They seem to be very high GI so I suppose they aren't too good as the energy gets used up quickly (?) I had one the other day and felt a bit sleepy afterwards (I often get like this after eating carbs - is this normal?). Haven't seen a dietician yet but hope you guys can give me the lowdown in the meantime. I've been started off on 500mg Metformin once a day with breakfast.

    Welcome Ladyfairy.
    I can get away with a medium jacket potatoe. Think its just a case of trial and error when you are first diagnosed. There are many foods that I can eat now that my levels are in a better place that would of sent my BG levels high when I was first diagnosed.
