Potatoes are one of the great comfort foods, especially when stuffed with a satisfying mixture of lean ground beef and broccoli florets plus reduced-fat sour cream and Cheddar cheese. Add a tossed salad and you have a healthy and hearty meal that will leave you feeling good.

"These are soo good! My husband absolutely loves them! They're pretty easy to make & don't take long to prepare. Instead of the beef, I have used bacon bits (for lack of time) and ground turkey. Both were great! I also add French'...

even my picky kids loved these!

I love this recipe, i changed sour creme for ranch dressing. left out the meat cause 2 of the kids won't eat meat..called them veggie stuffed potatoes. huge hit!

easy and easy to modify
try baking & brush the skins with olive oil/vegetable oil

Actually, I bake these (twice), or use extra day-old baked potatoes. For the second baking I brush the skins with olive oil to make them crispy.

awesome recipe, love it! reminds me of fonzie fries

I make a similar recipe, I leave out the meat & eat the meat on the side.
A diner in our town serves a similar dish, it is a 60s style diner with jukebox, elvis marilyn monroe pics etc.....
The dish is called fonzie's fries, it is a plate of fresh cut fries topped with cooked ground beef&onions, topped again with chopped peppers, then, cheese curds and finally gravy! It is a doctored version of the canadian poutine, very filling and delicious, no desert needed thanks!

love these!

I make a version of these but don't use meat, they are awesome! I eat with roasted meat and carrots, corn etc...
A filiing dish, similar to these, is served at a local restaurant, 60s diner style with juke box, elvis&marilyn munroe pics etc.....the dish is called Fonzie's Fries, it's a large plate of fries topped with ground beef&onions&chopped bell peppers, topped next with cheese curds, or mozza, & gravy, it's a doctored version of our Canadian poutine, an entire meal really! Delicious. No desert needed thanks!

Good "Survival" Food

I made these last night with some changes. First, I baked the potatoes in the oven for 45 minutes, because whenever I microwave potatoes they get a dry, tough skin, and I wanted them to be nice and crispy. Second, I'm lactose intolerant, so instead of sour cream I flavored them with minced garlic, onion powder, and chicken broth for moisture. They were pretty good, but not spectacular. My SO said they made good "survival food"--an option to remember when you're snowed in and all you have is a sack of potatoes and a pound of ground beef and frozen veggies in the freezer (or a bottle of bacon bits, if you're really unprepared). Since this recipe can be made with simple staples that keep well, I'll file it away for the long stretch between December and March, when it's tough to get to the grocery store.
