These hearty baked potatoes are the perfect accompaniment to Marinated Flank Steak.


  • 8 medium baking potatoes, about 8 ounces each, scrubbed

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 large onion, finely chopped

  • 1 cup reduced-fat sour cream

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • ¼ cup snipped chives


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prick potatoes in several places with a fork. Place on a baking sheet, and bake until easily pierced with the tip of a knife, 50 to 60 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, make onion sour cream: In a 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-low heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl; cool to room temperature.

  3. Add sour cream to onion; mix to combine. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Cut a deep cross in the top of each potato; push ends together to open. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon some onion sour cream over each potato, and sprinkle with chives. Serve.
