  • 1
    Position oven rack 4 inches from broiler. Heat oven to 375°F. Spray rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray; place potatoes on baking sheet. Pierce potatoes all over with fork to allow steam to escape. Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour or until tender. Let stand until cool enough to handle. Cut potatoes lengthwise into halves; carefully scoop out pulp, leaving 1/8-inch shells. Save potato pulp for another use.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat cream cheese, Parmesan cheese and pepper flakes with electric mixer on medium speed 30 to 60 seconds or until combined. Stir in artichoke hearts and spinach.
  • 3
    In 8-inch skillet, melt butter over low heat. Add garlic cloves; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, to infuse garlic in butter.
  • 4
    Place potato skins, skin sides down, on baking sheet. Brush with garlic butter; reserve garlic cloves for another use. Sprinkle potato skins with salt.
  • 5
    Set oven control to broil. Broil potato skins 4 to 6 minutes or until crisp and brown. Spoon cream cheese mixture onto and spread evenly in potato skins. Broil 1 to 3 minutes or until cheese mixture is warmed through and beginning to brown in spots. Top with diced tomato.

Expert Tips

  • While a spoon works great for scooping the potatoes, a melon baller leaves nice clean edges.
  • Don’t know what to do with the leftover garlic cloves? Finely chop and stir into 1 cup of mayonnaise for a quick aioli to use on sandwiches or crostini.
