Broccoli Cheddar Baked Potato


for 3 servings

  • 3 russet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 4 oz cream cheese (115 g)
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese (100 g), plus more for topping
  • ½ cup chopped broccoli (75 g)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup milk (60 mL)
  • sour cream, for serving
  • chopped fresh chive, for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Carefully pierce potatoes with a fork. Place on a baking sheet and drizzle with the olive oil, then sprinkle with 2 teaspoons of salt. Bake for about 1 hour, until tender (if baking more potatoes, add an additional 15 minutes of cook time per potato). Remove from the oven and let cool. Leave the oven on.
  3. Once cooled, cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. Scoop out the flesh and transfer to a large bowl, reserving the skins.
  4. Add the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, broccoli, remaining 2 teaspoons salt, the pepper, and milk to the bowl with the potato flesh and mix well.
  5. Scoop the broccoli cheddar potato mixture back into the potato skins and top with more cheddar cheese. Return to the baking sheet.
  6. Bake the potatoes for about 15 minutes, until the cheese is melted.
  7. Serve warm with sour cream and chives.
  8. Enjoy!
