Broccoli Topped Potatoes

This was a filling way to enjoy baked potatoes. To be honest, I never would've thought to combine broccoli and potatoes, but it was awesome! I had this as my meal, but it would also be a hearty side!

Also, this is hands-down the best way to make steamed broccoli! I had no idea, and probably won't be buying frozen broccoli ever again!

Total Time: 1 hour
Serves 4
  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 1 head broccoli
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Wash and scrub potatoes. Cut slits in potatoes and wrap in tin foil. Place directly on rack of heated oven, and cook for 1 hour, or until potatoes are soft.

Cut the broccoli into spears and trim the stems. Place into a microwave safe bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave for 5 minutes until tender.

Halve open the potatoes, and top with broccoli and even amounts of cheddar cheese.
