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'...

Great recipe to add to the rotation!

I love this recipe because it was so easy and quick to prepare. I cut it in half since I don't need so many leftover, but the leftovers I had were awesome too!

Quick, easy, inexpensive
Delicious, Quick and Easy

I LOVE this recipe. It very easy to change up this recipe to your liking. Instead of adding meat and sour cream, I just stuck with broccoli, cheddar cheese and some black pepper for a little spice. It went great with my evening meal and this will not be the last time I load my potatoes!

Easy to modify
Alaskan Salmon with brocoli and a loaded potato

I loved this recipe and my family wants them again! I served it with a side wedge salad. I even doubled the recipe but most of us only ate 1 potato because they're so filling. My only complaint was the filling was a bit dry, but I added a dollop of extra sour cream on the top and that fixed it. There was also a lot of filling left, but I put it in the refrigerator.

Easy, filling, delicious

These are so good, my 9 yr old takes these to school in her thermos for lunch!

Delicious and Filling

I made this last night and was very impressed. For very few ingredients, my meal was huge! I used ground turkey meat instead of beef, doubled the broccoli, and added sliced mushrooms. As a result, my filling overflowed, but that's was just fine! I seasoned the meat with a salt-free herb blend and it added a nice touch. It did take about 45 minutes start to finish, so it's not a super quick meal. I felt like the simplicity made up for that though. It's not like I was pulling out 20 ingredients and chopping and dicing the whole time. In the end, it was tasty and more than filling. I actually couldn't finish the whole potato. Looking forward to left-overs tonight!

Simple, inexpensive, and tasty
