Broccoli-and-Cheddar-Stuffed Baked Potatoes

Broccoli-and-Cheddar-Stuffed Baked Potatoes

Serve this hearty combo for an easy lunch or dinner. The “bacon” bits are made from soy; brands like Frontier and Lightlife offer them in all-natural form. If desired, you can individually wrap each prepared stuffed potato in foil and freeze. Bake at 350°F to defrost and cook through, about 30 minutes.

  • 4Servings


  • 2 large baking potatoes (10 oz. each)
  • 1 head broccoli, cut into small florets, stems cut into 1/2-inch pieces (2 1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 4 oz. soy "cheddar cheese," shredded (1 cup)
  • 2 Tbs. soy "sour cream"
  • 2 tsp. soy "bacon" bits


Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake potatoes until tender when pierced with a fork, about 1 hour.

Meanwhile, in medium saucepan, combine broccoli, salt and 2/3 cup water. Cover, bring to a boil and cook until broccoli is just tender, about 5 minutes. Drain well and set aside.

Remove potatoes from oven and cool slightly. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Line baking sheet with foil.

Cut each potato lengthwise in half. Scoop out flesh into medium bowl, leaving 1/2-inch-thick shells. With fork, mix “cheese” and “sour cream” into potato flesh; fold in cooked broccoli. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.

Heap filling into potato shells, packing lightly. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon “bacon” bits over each, pressing into place. Set stuffed potatoes on prepared baking sheet and bake until “cheese” has melted and filling is heated through, about 20 minutes.
