Broccoli and Cheddar Potato Skins

Potato skins are one of those foods that just screams football and party. But, until recently, I thought they were really hard to make at home. Surprisingly, they are not!

Some people scoop the insides of the potato almost completely to the skin, but I like to leave just a little bit inside for an added layer of flavor. These are gluten free and vegetarian. If you have a vegan guest, just skip the cheese on several of them.

Broccoli and Cheddar Potato Skins
by Michelle Maskaly, The Adirondack Chick

4 large baked potatoes
2 cups steamed broccoli florets
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

Preheat the oven to 475 degrees. 

Slice each baked potato in half length-wise.

Scoop out the insides, leaving about 1/4 of an inch inside the skin. Put the insides of the potato in a separate bowl and save for another use.

Arrange the potato skins on a non-stick baking sheet.

Mix together the oil, paprika, garlic salt in pepper in a small bowl.

Brush both sides of the potato with the mixture.

Bake for 7 minutes, turn and bake on the other side for another 7 minutes. Remove from oven and fill with the steamed broccoli. Top with the cheddar cheese.

Put the potato skins back in the oven for about 2 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.

    That is such a great idea. My whole family loves broccoli – it's probably everyone's favorite veggie and I'm just drooling over these! They'd be the perfect side dish for burgers :)
