  • 4 Idaho potatoes, scrubbed (10 ounces)
  • 3/4 cup skim milk
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 4 ounces reduced-fat extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen broccoli florets, defrosted


  1. 1. Cook potatoes:
  2. OVEN: Preheat oven to 400°. Pierce potatoes with a fork, and wrap each in foil. Bake until tender, 1 hour.
  3. MICROWAVE: Pierce potatoes with a fork, and wrap each in a paper towel. Place in microwave, and cook on high 8 minutes, until just tender when pierced with a fork (potatoes will continue to cook when removed from microwave).
  4. While potatoes are cooking, make sauce:
  5. 2. Combine milk and flour in a small saucepan, bring to simmer, and cook, whisking, until thickened, 2–3 minutes. Add cheese, salt, pepper, and cayenne, and whisk until sauce is smooth. Continue to simmer, whisking, an additional 2 minutes.
  6. 3. Heat broccoli in a heat-safe dish in the microwave for 4-5 minutes, until hot.
  7. 4. Split cooked potatoes open with a knife. Spoon 1/2 cup broccoli into each potato, and top with 1/4 cup Cheddar sauce.

Cook time is for microwave method.
