Game Day Mediterranean Stuffed Potatoes

Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.

The big game is right around the corner. Will you be tuning in? Look. For me it's all about the commercials and the food. Especially the food. People talk about holiday weight gain, but my annual weight gain usually falls in February when I'm gorging myself on game day snacks. However, I'm going to *try* to eat a little healthier this year. No promises that there won't be some greasy snacks on display, but instead of fried potato wedges or butter and sour cream loaded baked potatoes, I'm going to pop some Mediterranean Stuffed Potatoes on the table instead. 

Mediterranean Stuffed Potatoes

The Mediterranean diet was named the diet to follow in 2019, and I've largely stuck with it since then. I love their use of fresh veggies in their dishes as well as their simplistic dressings. For this recipe, you've got all of that packed into one dish. Lots of veggies with reserved artichoke marinade serving as the dressing. I cut the tops off of my potatoes and scooped a little of the potato out to make a well to place the veg mixture into. You don't have to do that though. Use my trick to get your potato cut open perfectly. Using your knife, make an X across the top of the potato. Then, use your hands to slowly, but firmly press the potato ends together. Voila. A fluffy baked potato ready to consume.

6 baking potatoes
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup onion, chopped
1 cup green pepper, chopped
1 cup red pepper, chopped
1 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (6 ounce) jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped, reserving 1 Tablespoon of marinade
1 cup feta cheese, crumbled
6 black olives, pitted and chopped
1 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste

What team will you be rooting for in the big game this year?


  1. Looks legitimately nom minus the olives and artichokes :)

  2. You really know how to work a potato. Years of practice? lol I don't think I've ever watched a Superbowl. Can look at the commercials later if I wish.

  3. These do look really delish. Good food tastes every bit as wonderful as junk...the good food just needs to be present for people to realize it and enjoy!! I bet these are going to be a HUGE hit! Honestly, I don't even know who is in the Super Bowl which is a big deal for me because I used to be all about football. Funny how life changes.

  4. These look so good! I'd gobble it up. It's lunch time. I love that kind of combo on pizza too.

  5. I won't be rooting for anyone this game since I have no idea who's even in it. Unless it's a NY team or the Patriots, we don't hear much about the Superbowl over here. This looks delicious! They say a Mediterranean diet is a key to a long life!

  6. Sruffed potatoes ate so good, I should try to stuff them this way, look yum!

  7. what delicious stuffed potatoes Theresa !!!

  8. These potatoes look delicious, Theresa! Terry and I follow a blend of the Mediterranean/DASH diets for the same reasons. Not that I'm doing so well on the diet since I had periodontal and dental surgery last week. Only soft food for another week. Ice cream is easier to eat than broccoli ~ LOL. You have shared so many good recipes! Thank you!

  9. That's a potato I'd like to sink my teeth in. Thanks for stopping by.

  10. looking great and obviously healthy! I love olive, peppers and artichokes.. I eat olive like nuts :).
