Very nice spuds. I had no broccoli, so I subbed green peppers. Served this along with BBQ chicken and Dorothy Parks' peas & onion au gratin.
DH keeps telling me he hates broccoli, and I keep convincing him he's wrong. This is one more example where he was wrong! This was really good; we both enjoyed it. I added some slices of swiss cheese on top and sprinkled with paprika.
Made for Freezer Tag Challenge March 2008: Good twice baked potato recipe. I don't recommend cooking from frozen as the broccoli started to burn. However, I think microwaving for a couple of minutes or thawing before baking would solve this issue. To freeze: complete through step 13. Place in freezer until firm. Move to a zip top bag. To serve: Thaw potatoes overnight in fridge or microwave until soft. Bake until heated through. Weight Watchers: 5 pts when using ff Ranch. Total points may vary based on potatoe size.
I put this recipe in my cookbook earlier in the day, but didn't have it with me when dinner time rolled around! Luckily I remembered most of it and it was wonderful! I only made one potato and I forgot about the onions and butter. I just mixed the baked potato pulp with some chopped broccoli, a little low-fat ranch dressing, garlic powder and black pepper. When it came out of the oven it was SO tasty. Thanks for posting this easy and delicious recipe!
These potatoes were just great Erin. I baked mine in the oven. The ranch dressing really makes this so good. I sprinkled a little Monterey Jack cheese on top. I served these with a green salad and we had a wonderful meal. Thanks.
