  • 4 Russet potatoes scrubbed
  • 1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 4 tsp healthy buttery spread
  • 1/2 tsp garlic or seasoned salt
  • 1 snipped fresh chives or green onion tops (optional)
  • 16 slices turkey pepperoni
  • 1/4 cup warm pasta sauce
  • 1/4 cup Italian blend shredded cheese
  • 1 tbsp minced green pepper
  • 1 tbsp sliced green onion


  • Cut a wedge out of each potato about 1/8-inch wide and 1-inch deep and place in a microwave-safe dish. Microwave on HIGH, uncovered, for 10 to12 minutes depending on strength of microwave. Use oven mitts to remove dish from microwave.
  • Carefully make a slit in the top of each potato and fluff with a fork. Stir 1 Tablespoon yogurt, 1 teaspoon buttery spread and 1/8 teaspoon salt into each potato; sprinkle with chives if desired. Place 16 slices turkey pepperoni on a plate and microwave on HIGH for 45 to 60 seconds to crisp.
  • Top each seasoned potato with pasta sauce, cheese, green pepper and green onion. Microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes to melt cheese, then, top with coarsely crumbled pepperoni slices.
