Western Omelet Potato Skins

This recipe is from Gina's Skinny Recipes, one of my new favorite sites, and it was delicious! About 300 calories for two!

2 medium russet potatoes (I actually used red potatoes)
olive oil spray (or Pam)
2 large eggs
3 egg whites
2 tbsp fat free milk
2 thin slices lean ham, chopped (I used chicken, finely chopped)
2 tbsp chopped onion
1/2 cup bell pepper, chopped
salt and pepper
4 tbsp cheddar cheese

*Pierce potato with a fork a few times all around. Place in microwave and cook about 5 minutes per potato. When finished, allow to cool enough to handle. Cut potatoes in half horizontally. Scoop out potatoes leaving about 1/4 inch thick wall.

*In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Add onion, pepper and ham/chicken and mix well. Spray a medium nonstick skillet with olive oil spray and cook the eggs, mixing often.

*Heat oven to 450°. Lightly spray potato skins on both sides with oil. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Fill with eggs and top each one with 1 tbsp cheese. Place on a baking sheet and bake 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
