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.



READER'S COMMENT:
"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'...

I realized I didn't have any broccoli in the house so I decided to try a more mexican style by using green peppers and black to the mix INSTEAD of broccoli and scallions. Turned out great. However, I never thought of stuffing a potato and I don't know why! Thanks, Britt

The oven was already on, so I wrapped the potatoes in foil and baked @ 375 for 1.5 hours. Then substituted greek yogurt for the sourcream, then put back in the oven @ 425 for 20 min. Finally I topped them with the remaining cheese and returned them to the oven for 5 more min. Delish!!! Will definitely do again.

I agree with the person who used chicken broth to add some extra moisture. Plain non-fat yogurt is also a good thing to use, when you need some extra moisture without fat and calories. Have not trie it, but I would imagine black beans would be good in this for those who do not eat meat, or for anyone really. This is a good way to eat the skin of the potato, as I have read that is where so many of the nutrients are. I am curious if anyone has tried with sweet potatoes???

I made this for my family, and while it was very tasty, I did use a bit more sour cream because the mixture was a bit dry. We had quite a bit of leftover stuffing mix so the next day I used the leftovers to top some big portobello mushrooms, topped them with cheese, and baked them in the oven and those were awesome! The mushrooms even seemed to add some extra moisture to the stuffing and made it really tasty. I think next time we will skip stuffing it back into the potato skins and just use it to top the mushrooms. The kids did like the stuffing either way we did it though, so it's definitely a keeper recipe in our house!
