6 medium Idaho potatoes
3 stalks broccoli
¼ C skim milk
½ C shredded light cheddar cheese
- Scrub potatoes. Make shallow slits around the middle, as if you were cutting the potatoes in half lengthwise. Bake at 350°F for 30 to 60 minutes until done, depending on size.
- Peel broccoli stems. Steam whole stalks until just tender, and chop finely.
- Carefully slice potatoes in half and scoop the insides into a bowl with the broccoli. Add milk, 3/8 cup cheese and pepper to taste. Mash together until mixture is pale green with dark green flecks.
- Heap into potato jackets, and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
- Return to oven and heat through (about 15 minutes).
