Skip the sour cream and give a mushroom-topped spud a better finish: a generous dollop of yogurt, plus a little cheddar and chives.

  • 4 medium russet potatoes, about 8 ounces each
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, stemmed and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 2/3 cup grated white cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup plain low-fat (2 percent) yogurt
  • Finely chopped fresh chives, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Bake potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet until skins are crisp and flesh is tender, 45 to 50 minutes.

  2. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring, until browned, about 2 minutes. Stir in salt; season with pepper.

  3. Slit the potatoes lengthwise, stopping 1/2 inch from ends. Gently squeeze ends to loosen flesh. Open each potato slightly. Divide sauteed mushrooms and the cheese among potatoes; top each with 1 tablespoon yogurt. Garnish with chives.
