  6. Add 1 cup cheddar cheese to the potato pulp mixture.
  7. Heat a small skillet over medium heat; add onion and saute until tender, about 5 minutes.
  8. Add onion, broccoli, and salad dressing to potato pulp; mix well.
  9. Brush the outside of potato skin shells with oil.
  10. Spoon potato mixture into shells, dividing evenly.
  11. Place on baking sheet.
