Garden Stuffed Baked Potatoes

Garden Stuffed Baked Potatoes

4 large potatoes
2 Tbsp butter
1 small onion, chopped
1 (10 oz) package chopped broccoli, thawed
½ c ranch style salad dressing
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 tsp dried parsley
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 425F. Pierce the skin of the potatoes with a fork.

Microwave pierced potatoes on HIGH for 12 minutes. Place partially baked potatoes in the preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes. Slice of potato tops, scoop out the bulk of the interior of the potato, being careful to leave the skins intact. In a medium bowl, mash the removed potato interior.

Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Stir in butter. Sauté onions in the skillet until tender, about 5 minutes.

Combine onions, broccoli, and ranch dressing with the mashed potato. Brush the outside of the potato skins with oil. Spoon potato mixture into the skins. Arrange stuffed potatoes on a cookie sheet.

Bake potatoes for 15 minutes in the preheated 425F oven, or until heated through. Season with salt, pepper, and parsley.

My pleasure, ITK! I know what you mean--I find that even though I'm sure I have the info I need in my cookbooks, I always turn to everyone here for answers and ideas--a learn a lot more and it's more fun this way! :D

PA Baker, you think I could make this for supper and get by without fixing something else? It seems like is has everything in it. Anything to get by without messing the whole kitchen. Or do I have to fix some kind of meat with it? Did you make it and what did you fix? Hope I am not too personal here?

Not too personal at all--feel free to ask away! I would be happy with just this for dinner but I know my hubby wouldn't be. He has this weird thing about getting tired of the same taste after awhile--he needs to vary it a bit. How about serving it with a bowl of soup (a good canned soup is OK!) or a big fruit salad? That would make it feel like a larger meal but keep it light, healthy, and really easy to clean up.

Thanks PA Baker, I appreciate your time. Your hubby sounds like the guys I have to cook for. Never enough but soup and fruit salad sounds good to me. Especially canned soup for these holidays. Glad you're around.

PA Baker tried it. Wasn't lot of trouble. Was a surprise that that is all they ate last nite. Was better than going out to eat no effort. I enjoyed it will make again now that I once tried it. You think potatoes are fattening? I only had small amount of Ranch Dressing on it. Now your zucchini patties are going to be challenge by shredding but I know the effort will be worth it. Thanks again.

I'm glad you liked them, ITK! Potatoes aren't fattening, it's what you put on them that can be (lots of butter, cheese, all the good stuff!). You could probably use the reduced fat versious of everything in the recipe to cut back on fat. Potatoes are high in carbs, but the cheese and dairy have protein to offset the carbs.

The zucchs are pretty easy to shred on a box grater, if you have one. You can get cheapy ones at Kmart and such. I don't remember with out looking how many cups it calls for, 2 maybe? Anyway, once you get grating it goes fast and doesn't take all that long!

Let me know what you think of them!
