6 medium size baking potatoes, scrubbed
3 stalks broccoli (about 1 lb.) stems peeled
1 c. grated cheddar cheese
1/3 c. milk
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Brush the skins of potatoes with butter and score them
down the middle lengthwise. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes or until tender.
Steam broccoli stalks for 6 to 8 minutes or just until tender. Chop finely.
Carefully slice the potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop the flesh into a bowl.
Reserve the skins.
Add broccoli, 1/2 cup of the cheese, milk, salt and pepper. Mash
until the mixture is pale green with dark flecks.
Spoon the mixture into the potato skins and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Place on a baking sheet and bake for 10
minutes. Heat broiler and broil potatoes for 1 minute, or until the tops are golden brown.
