Baked Potato Skins w/ Creamy Spinach & Turkey Bacon

Ingredients:

3 small potatoes, baked, sliced in half and cooled
1 spray(s) cooking spray
20 oz chopped frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
4 oz light cream cheese, at room temperature
1/4 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
3 slice(s) cooked crisp turkey bacon, crumbled

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Scoop out flesh of potatoes, leaving about 1/4 of potato flesh in potato. (Note: Reserve remaining potato flesh for another use such as mashed potatoes.)
2. Place potato halves on a baking sheet and coat with cooking spray. Bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
3. While potato skins bake, combine spinach, cream cheese, salt and pepper in a medium bowl until well-blended.
4. Remove skins from oven and spoon about 3 tablespoons of spinach mixture into each potato half; bake until warmed through, about 5 minutes more.
5. Remove skins from oven and top each half with about 1 tablespoon of crumbled bacon.
