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'...

Do not cook

Don't be deceived by the picture. To improve add cayenne pepper and vitamin C. But make sure you leave in the oven too long so you have to throw it away.


I thought this would be great for dinner. It looks like it fits into my calorie and macro requirements. I thought I would have to eat pretty light on my carbs the rest of the day, but it seemed doable. Then I added the recipe ingredients into 2 different calorie tracking sites and the ACTUAL calories for this dish is well over 400 calories vs. the 274 calories the recipe states. It is really disappointing. I guess my poor review is as much for this grossly inaccurate website as it is for the recipe.

Looks delicious
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.

That is a great idea! Thanks!

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!
