These come together beautifully and it's the type of recipe that you can do while you're doing other things. Perfect pairing!

After baking potatoes in the oven, you'll mix up the ingredients, pop them back in the oven and then brown and broil the melty cheddar cheese for a perfect finish.

I especially love these to send in school lunches!

Add some chopped up ham or turkey on top and it's a complete school meal.

This broccoli heavy recipe is a clever and tasty way to get some greens into our little scholars' bellies.

For this recipe, I use a bag of frozen broccoli that's a breeze to roast while the potatoes are baking.

How To Shop for and Select Potatoes

Shopping for potatoes at the grocery store is easy to do! Unlike other produce, potatoes show you who they are at a glance.

Choose potatoes with the following features.

  • Limited 'eye' or indents
  • Full skin, not shriveled
  • No sprouting or the little green or white 'spikes' that indicate over exposure to light. 
  • No green spots

How Should I Store Potatoes?

Store potatoes in a cool, dark location in your kitchen, pantry, storage room or even garage.

Don't refrigerate potatoes as storing them at temperatures below 40 degrees F can increase the amount of sugar they contain. 

More sugar in potatoes results in producing higher levels of a chemical called acrylamide when the potatoes are baked, fried or roasted at high temperatures.

If potatoes sprout or show green patches, compost them and don't cook them. 

Sprouted or green on potatoes indicates the presence of solanine and chaconine, two natural toxins that in certain amounts can make a person ill.

What Type of Potato Should I Use for Different Recipes?

My savory roasted garlic mashed potatoes recipe calls for a classic tuber option, the russet potato. 

This starchy version is ubiquitous in the market and very affordable making it a great option for lots of potato recipes.

Here's a short breakdown of tuber types for reference.

Starchy Potatoes

Varieties: Russet, yams

Characteristics: beautiful when mashed and whipped, break down when boiled

Uses: great for baking, roasting, mashing, double-baking, frying

Waxy Potatoes

Varieties: red, fingerlings

Characteristics: dense, hold their shape when boiled

Uses: roasting, boiling, frying, smashed/baked

All Purpose Potatoes

Varieties: Yukon Gold, white, yellow

Characteristics: blend of starchy and waxy, medium density

Uses: great for roasting, smashing, mashing

Broccoli and Cheddar Cheese Twice Baked Potatoes

Easy, nutritious and delicious broccoli and cheddar twice baked potatoes are a crowd pleaser!

Servings: 8


  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 1 hours 30 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hours 40 mins




  • 4 medium sized Russet potatoes
  • 3 TBS olive oil to coat potatoes for baking and add to roasted broccoli sheet pan
  • 2 cups roasted or cooked broccoli
  • 1 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
  • 4 TBS unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ¼ salt and pepper to taste
  • Parsley garnish (optional)


  1. Begin by pre-heating oven to 375 degrees F to bake potatoes and eventually broccoli.
  2. Wash and dry potatoes then brush/coat with hands in olive oil.
  3. Place pierced (fork or knife so they don't explode as I have done!) potatoes in oven and bake for an hour or until tender. Set a 30 minute timer to add broccoli to oven 1/2 through potatoes cooking.
  4. While potatoes are baking, prepare broccoli on a sheet pan with olive oil and salt and pepper to bake for last 30 minutes of potatoes' oven time.
  5. In a medium size mixing bowl combine cheese, butter, sour cream and salt and pepper. You'll add potato flesh and roasted broccoli to this bowl when ready which will melt the butter beautifully.
  6. When potatoes are baked through, remove from oven, let cool until ready to handle and cut lengthwise. Scoop out potato flesh and add to mixing bowl.
  7. Add roasted broccoli when ready to mixing bowl and combine ingredients making sure to mash potatoes as well.
  8. Scoop mixture back into potato 'skins' and place 8 halves on the broccoli baking sheet.
  9. Place in oven for 15-20 minutes and finish under broiler for a couple of minutes to melt and bubble cheese.
  10. Enjoy!
