BROCCOLI CHEDDAR BAKED POTATOES

Broccoli Cheddar Baked Potatoes are an easy vegetarian dinner that uses simple ingredients to make a filling and flavorful meal. 

These Broccoli Cheddar Baked Potatoes are, IMHO, the perfect half way point between comfort food and good-for-you food. I like compromise.This is yet another great “base” recipe that you can customize to fit your wallet and taste buds. This original version is so good that it made my feet wiggle,

 but if you want to add more you could always do something like bacon bits or grilled chicken, jalapeños or sriracha if you like it spicy, or maybe something simple like sliced green onion.

I’m only one person, so I halved the recipe for myself. Definitely added pepper to the sauce and used fresh broccoli. Super yummy!! I recommend giving it a try. :) Very good. Needs pepper or white pepper in sauce. Served with mixed greens, sliced beets, and strawberry poppyseed dressing. Delicious!

My daughter and husband loved this, I thought it needed more flavor, I will definitely add some additional spices next time Tried this with a sweet potatoe instead & it was so good, the sweetness of the potatoe & the sauce blended nicely.

Bake the potatoes for 45-60 minutes, or until tender all the way through.
