Ingredients

  • 4 medium russet potatoes scrubbed and dried
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 ½ cups steamed broccoli chopped
  • 1 ½ cups cheddar cheese shredded, divided
  • Chopped chives for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Scrub and dry the potatoes, then rub the skins with olive oil. Place potatoes on the baking sheet and bake for 1 hour, or until soft. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
  • Once the potatoes are cool to the touch, slice them in half lengthwise. Carefully scoop out the potato innards and place them into a large bowl, leaving a thin rim around the insides of the skins. Return the skins to the baking sheet.
  • To the potato innards, add butter, cream, sour cream, and seasonings. Use a potato masher or hand mixer to blend until smooth. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the broccoli and half of the cheese.
  • Divide the filling evenly among the potato shells, then top with the remaining cheese. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the potatoes are heated through. Broil for 1-2 minutes if desired.

Notes

  • The potatoes will be very hot when you take them out of the oven, let them cool on the worktop for 10 to 15 minutes before cutting them in half.
  • Leave a thin piece of flesh around the potato skin so that they hold their shape.
  • You can finish off the broccoli cheese twice baked potatoes under the broiler to get the cheese nice and bubbly.
