Cheesy Broccoli Baked Potatoes

There is a new show on TV called The Best Recipes Ever. It is based on Canadian Living. I taped the show as I never remember it is on. This recipe caught my eye as you can have a whole meal in one. Without a doubt this will be a recipe that will be made again and Dan liked it as well. You can take it to work and heat it up.

Cheesy Broccoli Baked Potatoes

Preheat oven to 400ยบ.


2 baking potatoes (russett)
1 cup broccoli florets, chopped
4 slices bacon, sliced 1/2"
1/2 cup chopped onions
2 tsp all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded


Take your potatoes and microwave them until just cooked. Use the potato setting.
Then place in oven for about 10 minutes until crisp.
Cook broccoli until tender, drain and set aside.
In medium size fry pan cook bacon until golden brown. Remove bacon from pan and place on paper towel to remove excess bacon fat.
Add onions to pan and cook until softened.
Add flour and cook until the flour is cooked out, 1/2 minute or so.
Whisk in milk, salt and pepper.
Stir until mixture thickens.
Remove from heat and add cheese, stir until cheese melts.
Add broccoli and bacon. Set aside.
When potatoes are done cut them in half and scoop out potato and put with broccoli and bacon mixture.
Combine the potato into the broccoli mixture.
Place the potato shells on baking sheet and fill with cheese broccoli mixture, over fill the shells with this mixture.
Top with the second grated cheese.

Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

I haven't made stuffed potatoes in a while. This is a keeper recipe. Love the idea of staring them in the microwave oven and finishing in the oven. I'm definitely doing that next time. Soooo very very good. Many thanks...
