Expert Tips

The low moisture and high starch content of russet potatoes make them perfect baking potatoes.

Use lean ground turkey and nonfat sour cream to cut about 5 grams of fat from each serving.

Enjoy these hearty potatoes with thick slices of grilled buttered French bread, carrot and celery sticks and sliced cucumbers.
