“I made these tonight and they turned out very good and very filling. If you love baked potatoes, give this recipe a try.”
4 potato halves

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bake the potatoes in your oven or just wrap them up in paper towel (piercing them with a fork first) and microwave them on high for about 8 minutes (depending on the size of the potatoes and the wattage of your microwave).
  2. In the meantime, steam broccoli in steamer until crisp tender and bright green.
  3. Spray a skillet with no stick cooking spray and add the sliced mushrooms, sprinkling with spices before you start cooking.
  4. Cook on medium-high until brown, stirring occasionally.
  5. Cut each potato in half lengthwise and top each half with a small amount of butter, then about three broccoli florets (each half), then divide the mushrooms evenly among the halves.
  6. Top each half with 1/4 cup of the cheese.
  7. Microwave until the cheese melts and top each half with 1 tablespoons of the sour cream.
  8. Enjoy!
