Ingredients

For the potatoes

  • 2-3 russet potatoes, rinsed and scrubbed
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher Salt

Cheese Sauce

  • 3-1/2 Teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • Dash of pepper
  • 1 Cup milk
  • 1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter

Steamed Broccoli

  • 3 Cups broccoli florets
  • 2 Tablespoons water

Directions

For the potatoes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Pierce potatoes two or three times on each side with a fork.
Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.

Bake directly on oven rack for one hour.
While potatoes are baking, make the cheese sauce.
 

Cheese Sauce

In a medium saucepan, add cornstarch, garlic powder, salt, pepper, milk and Worcestershire Sauce.  Bring to a boil over medium heat until sauce begins to thicken.  Reduce heat to low.

Add cheddar cheese and butter and whisk until smooth.

Steamed Broccoli

When potatoes are done, let cool for about 5 minutes or until they are cool enough to handle.
(Or play a game of Hot Potato with the kids)
While potatoes are cooling, steam about 3 cups broccoli florets in 2 Tbsp. water.
Microwave on high 4-5 minutes.

Cut a slit down the center of the potato and make a 'X' in the center.

Squish both sides of the potato to open up the skin.
Load up your potatoes with plenty of steamed broccoli and hot cheese sauce
