Broccoli and Cheddar Stuffed Baked Potatoes

Healthy Fact of the Day

Broccoli is a nutrient-packed cruciferous vegetable, rich in vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants. Combining it with baked potatoes creates a satisfying and nutritious meal.

Ingredients

 

4 large russet potatoes, scrubbed clean
2 cups broccoli florets, steamed or blanched and chopped
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Salt and pepper to taste
Chopped chives or green onions for garnish (optional)

 

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  2. Prick the potatoes several times with a fork to allow steam to escape during baking.

  3. Place the potatoes directly on the oven rack and bake for about 45-60 minutes, or until they are tender when pierced with a fork.

  4. While the potatoes are baking, steam or blanch the broccoli florets until they are bright green and tender, about 3-4 minutes. Chop them into small pieces.

  5. Remove the baked potatoes from the oven and let them cool slightly.

  6. Slice off the top third of each potato lengthwise and carefully scoop out the flesh, leaving a thin layer of potato inside the skin.

  7. In a mixing bowl, mash the potato flesh with sour cream, butter, salt, and pepper until creamy.

  8. Fold the chopped broccoli and half of the shredded cheddar cheese into the mashed potato mixture.

  9. Stuff each potato skin with the broccoli and cheddar filling.

  10. Top each stuffed potato with the remaining cheddar cheese.

  11. Place the stuffed potatoes on a baking sheet and return them to the oven. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

  12. Garnish with chopped chives or green onions if desired.

  13. Serve your Broccoli and Cheddar Stuffed Baked Potatoes hot as a comforting and nutritious meal.

 

 

These stuffed baked potatoes are a flavorful and hearty dish, combining the goodness of potatoes, broccoli, and cheese for a satisfying meal or side. Enjoy the creamy and cheesy goodness!
