Devilish Idaho® Potato Mummies


  • 2 large Idaho® potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons fat free Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of your favorite hot sauce
  • Kosher salt
  • cracked black pepper
  • 8 sliced black olives
  • 4 sticks of mozzarella string cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Scrub the potatoes clean and place directly on the oven rack. Pierce each potato several times with a fork or sharp knife.
  3. Bake 1 hour, and then remove to cool until you can handle them.
  4. Cut each potato in half and carefully scoop out the insides into a medium bowl. Making sure to leave at least 1/4 inch on the potato skin.
  5. Stir in the butter, Greek yogurt, paprika, and hot sauce, salt, and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
  6. Place the potato skins on a baking sheet and scoop 1/4th of the potato mixture back into each skin
  7. Lay strings of the mozzarella cheese across each potato in a zig-zag pattern. Making it look mummy-ish. Carefully place the olive "eyes" on the potatoes.
  8. Return to the oven and bake an additional 5 to 10 minutes, or just until the cheese begins to melt.
