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.
