Ingredients

  • 2 baking potatoes such as russet (about 900 g)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup 0% plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons grainy mustard

Method

Using fork, prick each potato several times. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until tender, about 1-1/4 hours. Let cool slightly.

Cut potatoes lengthwise into quarters. Scrape out flesh, leaving 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick shell; reserve flesh for another use. Cut each piece crosswise diagonally into thirds. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.)

Arrange potato pieces, skin side down, on parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Whisk together oil, chili powder, garlic powder, pepper, onion powder and salt; brush over tops of potato pieces. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Roast in 425°F (220°C) oven until golden and crisp, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, stir together yogurt, half of the chives, the parsley and mustard. Spoon small dollop onto each potato skin; sprinkle with remaining chives. Serve remaining yogurt mixture with potato skins.
