  • 4 medium russet potatoes
  • 3 tbsp Kosterina Greek Herb & Lemon Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt
  • 1/2 cup thick Greek yogurt (such as Fage or Greek Gods Lebni, or drain regular yogurt)
  • 3 ounces Greek Feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 tbsp minced fresh oregano leaves
  • Zest of 1 lemon, minced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, minced
  • Fresh ground black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Pierce the potatoes with a fork and place on a baking sheet.
  • Bake potatoes for 50-60 minutes or until they are cooked through. Let them sit until they are cool enough to handle.
  • Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. Hollow them out with a spoon, leaving about a 1/4" thick wall. Save the leftover potato flesh for another purpose. 
  • Put the olive oil on the sheet pan. Return the skins to the pan, and rub them on both sides with the oil. 
  • Return to the oven, skin side down, and bake for 7 minutes. 
  • Flip to skin side up and bake 5 to 10 more minutes, until they are nicely browned and crispy, especially around the inner rim.
  • Sprinkle each skin with a little bit of salt. Spread each with 1 tablespoon of yogurt. 
  • Top each with 1 tablespoon of feta cheese. 
  • Transfer to a heat-proof serving dish. Broil for 3 minutes or until the cheese is starting to melt.
  • Garnish with fresh oregano, lemon zest, red onion, black pepper, and more salt. Finish with a healthy drizzle of Kosterina Greek Herb & Lemon Olive Oil.
