Garlic Spinach Twice Baked Potatoes

Garlic Spinach Twice Baked Potatoes

This recipe calls for already baked potatoes so you can turn them into dinner quick and easy any night of the week. If you’re in a rush feel free to microwave the potatoes ahead of time, but they are best when baked for about 1 hour in a 400°F oven.

The classic stuffing is broccoli and you can use steamed or thawed frozen broccoli, but we really liked how spinach worked and highly recommend. You can skip the step of sautéing the spinach, but it is a nice flavor boost.

This meal can be a low calorie dinner or serve half a potato as a side to your favorite fish main or even some Over Easy Eggs..
