Serves 4 (serving size: 1 potato, 1/2 cup broccoli, and about 1/3 cup sauce)

To save time, you can also microwave the potatoes until tender: Pierce the potatoes liberally with a fork, and microwave at HIGH for 13 minutes or until tender, turning after 7 minutes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°.

Step 2

Place potatoes on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake at 450° for 50 minutes or until tender. Let stand 10 minutes.

Step 3

Heat a saucepan over medium heat. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add ham; sauté 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Add onion to pan; sauté 2 minutes. Combine 1/4 cup milk and flour in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add flour mixture and remaining 3/4 cup milk to pan, stirring constantly with a whisk. Cook 4 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove pan from heat. Stir in mustard, salt, pepper, and cheese.

Step 4

Bring 2 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add broccoli; cook 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain.

Step 5

Cut a lengthwise slit in each potato. Gently squeeze potatoes at both ends to open. Divide broccoli among potatoes; top evenly with sauce.

Super-easy; made to directions (as main dish) using sharp cheddar. Topped sauce with some snipped chives. Served with spinach-mushroom salad.

Used rotisserie chicken in place of ham and steamed broccoli in microwave. Cheese sauce was descent enough for a weeknight meal.
