This is a recipe that Herb and I use often. We love it because twice baked potatoes are so versatile – they are great made with a variety of ingredients from veggies to meats to cheeses. It’s easy to mix it up! Though broccoli cheese is usually what we use in our twice baked potatoes, we’ve also added red peppers, mushrooms, different cheeses (Parmesan is great), and even ground beef.

Twice baked potatoes are also pretty hearty! Though they are great as a side dish, most of the time we use them as “the main event”!

Broccoli Cheddar Stuffed Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes RecipeQuestion: Do you like to eat the skins on your potatoes? Mr. Herb thinks this is the best part! If I leave any of my potato skin uneaten (which I usually do), Mr. Herb will gobble it right up! Weird!!! What do you think, readers? Do you like the potato skins? Would you go so far as to eat someone ELSE’S potato skin?!

Anyway, this recipe is very flexible as far as the ingredients go. Use whatever veggie/meat/cheese/seasoning combination appeals to you! As a rule of thumb, I’d say about 1/2 cup of “other” ingredients for every one baked potato, so for three potatoes, you’d use roughly 1.5 cups of your chosen ingredients (veggies, meat, cheese, etc).

Broccoli Cheddar Twice Baked Potatoes

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3-4 medium-sized baking potatoes
  • 1/2 to 1 cup of shredded cheddar
  • 1 cup cooked broccoli (other cooked vegetables would work as well!)
  • 2-4 Tablespoons milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Butter and sour cream to garnish (optional)

Recipe Directions

Rub olive oil on potatoes and sprinkle salt over them. Bake on a baking sheet at 400 degrees for 1 hour.

While potatoes are baking, cook 1 cup of broccoli (or vegetables of your choice) – we used steam-in-the-bag broccoli. Once potatoes are finished, take the baking sheet out of the oven and let them cool for several minutes. Then, cut the top 1/3 or so off your potato (or you could cut them in half!) A serrated blade works best to cut through the potatoes.

Then scoop out the potato from the skin and mash in a mixing bowl. I’ve found that an ice cream scoop works pretty well for scooping out the potato.

Once the potatoes are mashed, mix together with broccoli, about 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese, and salt and pepper to taste. Also add several tablespoons of milk, using your judgment for the consistency. Next, spoon the mixture back into your potato skins.
