  • ½ cup Kale Pesto
  • 4 slices Swiss (or your choice) cheese, optional

  2. Piece and bake potatoes until soft (in oven at 375°F for 30-45 minutes, or in microwave on high for 10 minutes).
  3. Split cooked potatoes lengthwise, lay cheese slices inside, then top with 2 Tbsp pesto into each potato.
  4. Season with salt and pepper, then broil for a few minutes in the oven until cheese is melted.
