Prep: 10 min. •  Cook: 12 min. •  Serves: 4


Ingredients:

  • 4 medium (about 1 ½ lbs.) Biggins® potatoes, scrubbed
  • ¼ c. nonfat plain yogurt
  • 4 tsp. healthy buttery spread
  • ½ tsp. garlic or seasoned salt
  • Snipped fresh chives or green onion tops (optional)
  • 3 c. tiny broccoli flowerettes
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • ¼ c. reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese


Directions:


Cut a wedge out of each potato, about ⅛-inch wide and 1-inch deep and place in a microwave-safe dish. Microwave on HIGH, uncovered, for 10-12 minutes, depending on strength of microwave. Use oven mitts to remove dish from microwave. Carefully make a slit in the top of each potato and fluff with a fork. Stir 1 tablespoon yogurt, 1 teaspoon buttery spread and ⅛ teaspoon salt into each potato; sprinkle with chives if desired. Place broccoli in a small bowl with water. Cover and microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes. Drain and spoon equal amounts onto each seasoned potato. Sprinkle each with cheese and microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes more to melt cheese.
