This is out of one of my old Weight Watchers cookbooks called "Simple Goodness". I have this marked as really good! Hope you enjoy :)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit.
- Bake potatoes at 400 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until tender. Let cool slightly.
- Melt margarine in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add broccoli and onion; saute' 3 minutes. Add broth; bring to a boil.
- Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes or until broccoli is tender. Remove from heat; stir in ham and pepper.
- Cut a lengthwise strip from top of each potato; discard strips. Scoop out pulp, leaving 1/4 -inch-thick shells; set shells a side.
- Place potato pulp in a bowl; add 2 tablespoons sour cream, and mash to desired consistency. Stir in broccoli mixture. Spoon mixture evenly into potato shells.
- Place potatoes in an 11X7 inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
- Top each potato with 2 tablespoons cheese, and bake an additional 3 minutes or until cheese melts.
- Top each potato with 1 Tablespoon sour cream.
This was quite good and filling too! The only thing that could have made it better was the "good" versions of the lower fat ingredients lol. This is a bit of work, but worth the effort.
Made these as directed except for using regular cheddar cheese (that is what I had) and mixed some of it in with the potato mixture before topping. With a green salad DH and I were quite happy with our dinner. Thank you for posting. Made for 2013 Zaar Cookbook tag game.
These were enjoyed. To shorten the cooking time since I don't like to microwave potatoes, the potatoes were cooked the night before and left in skins. I did heat them up a bit the next day before scooping out the pulp. This method seemed to work well. Since I did not use broccoli (personal preference), I did not use the chicken broth. I mashed the pulp with milk and sour cream. Added the cheese to the filling for simplicity. Thanks for sharing.
