INGREDIENTS
6 small baking potatoes, scrubbed clean and dried
1 (16-ounce) package JENNIE-O® Lean Ground Turkey
1 garlic clove, minced

3) Heat oven to 400°F. Place potato skins on foil lined baking sheet and brush interior of each potato with olive oil. Bake potato skins 5 minutes to crisp slightly.
4) Remove potato skins from oven and add ¼ cup of turkey filling to each potato skin. Top with cheese bake 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
