  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 sweet potatoes (about 2-1/4 lb/ 1.125 kg)
  • 1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 green onions sliced
  • 1/3 cup diced Black Forest ham (about 3 slices)
  • 1/3 cup diced smoked chicken (about 3 slices)
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Method

Scrub potatoes and prick all over with fork. Bake on foil-lined baking sheet in 400°F (200°C) oven for about 1 hour and 15 minutes or until tender; let cool slightly.

Slit potatoes lengthwise down middle without cutting all the way through. Holding with clean tea towel or hot pad, scoop out flesh into bowl, leaving 1/4-inch (5 mm) layer inside each potato skin.

Mash flesh with yogurt, salt and pepper until smooth; stir in half of the onions. Spoon back into potato skins.

Sprinkle ham, remaining onions and cheese along opening.
