Okay, the basic process for making these seems straight-forward.  But does 
anyone know of any stuff I can bake them with that's semi-low-fat?  I'm 
thinking broccoli and low-fat cheese.  Any other suggestions?

When I'm trying to be healthy, instead of the usual butter, milk and
cheese, I whip the potatoes with 2% milk and a head of roasted garlic ( I
usually do 4 potatoes at a time)  They're pretty good that way.

Try using buttermilk or low-fat or no-fat sour cream and some chopped 
green onion.

Try low-fat cottage cheese, grated parmesan, chopped green onions, a dash 
of white pepper, a good shake of basil, garlic powder and top with sweet 
Hungarian paprika.

Mash the insides of the potatoes and then stir in some Campbell's Cream 
of Celery Soup.  Top with some butter and stick under the broiler to 
brown.

I just made twice baked potatoes over the weekend -- I scoop out the
potatoes and mix with no-fat sour cream, skim milk, a *little* bit of
butter (I got to!), garlic salt, pepper, and reduced fat cheddar.

When I bake the potatoes prior to scooping, I spray each scrubbed
spud with cooking spray and wrap in foil.

Have you ever tried Molly McButter instead of the real thing, I
use it when I am behaving, which is rare.

I like to add chopped smoked salmon to my twice baked potatos (don't
use cheddar cheese) and garnish with dill.

Other additions:

Finely diced lean ham
Cooked mushrooms
Low-fat ricotta
Any of a variety of fresh snipped herbs (parsley, tarragon, chervil and
chives                                           are my favorites, but not
mixed)
A puree of garlic cloves stewed til soft
Chopped leftover cooked veg
Parmesan cheese - the good kind

Another way to make these more low fat is to mash the potatoes with potato
water from another night, de-fatted broth, including bean broth, or water
left over from cooking other grains.

From Rose Reisman's Enlightened Home Cooking:

Greek Baked Stuffed Potatoes with Tomato, Olives and Cheese

Preheat oven to 425

3 medium baking potatoes
2 tsp vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
2/3 cup chopped green peppers
1/2 cup chopped red onions
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
2/3 cup chopped fresh tomatoes
1/3 cup chopped green onions (about 2 medium)
1/4 cup 2% yogurt
1/4 cup 2% milk
1 1/2 oz feta cheese, crumbled

Bake the potatoes for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until easily piereced with 
the tip of a sharp knife.

Meanwhile, in a nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat.  Add garlic, 
green peppers, red onions and oregano and cook for 7 minutes or until 
softened, stirring occassionally.  Stir in tomatoes, black olives and green 
onions and cook for 1 minute more.  Remove from heat.

When potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut in half lengthwise and scoop 
out flesh, leaving shells intact.  Place shells on baking sheet.  Mash 
potato and add yogurt, milk and 1 oz of feta.  Stir in vegetable mixture.  
Divide among potatoe skin shells, sprinkle with remaining feta and bake 15 
minutes or until heated through.
