“In this healthy baked potato recipe we top the potatoes with broccoli (use up your leftover cooked broccoli!) and a quick Cheddar cheese sauce in a crowd-pleasing favorite. The potatoes are cooked in the microwave, so this easy meal is done in less than 30 minutes.”

Ingredients

    • 4 medium russet potatoes
    • 1 cup milk
    • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • ½ cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
    • 1 cup cooked small broccoli florets
    • Salt & cayenne pepper, to taste

Directions

  • 1 Pierce potatoes all over with a fork. Place in the microwave and cook at 50% power, turning once or twice, until the potatoes are soft, about 20 minutes. (Or, use the "potato setting" on your microwave and cook according to the manufacturer's instructions.)
  • 2 Heat ¾ cup of the milk in a small saucepan over medium heat until steaming, about 4 minutes.
  • 3 Stir together flour and the remaining ¼ cup milk in a cup until smooth. Add to the hot milk, stirring constantly until the mixture boils and thickens. Remove from heat and stir in cheese. Season with salt and cayenne.
  • 4 Distribute broccoli over the baked potatoes, top with the cheese sauce and serve.
