Broccoli & Cheddar Stuffed Twice Baked Potatoes + GIVEAWAY!

Potatoes are one of my favorite foods. Baked, fried, stuffed, mashed, roasted, scalloped; there’s endless ways to make them and I enjoy them all. While this Broccoli & Cheddar Stuffed Twice Baked Potatoes recipe is a sponsored post, all opinions are my own.

Broccoli & Cheddar Stuffed Twice Baked Potatoes

When it comes to menu planning, more struggle lies within picking out side dishes more than anything else. I am always looking for new ideas or new ways to put a twist on my favorites. With all the variations to prepare potatoes, having them a few times a week is a no-brainer for me.

The majority of potato dishes made in my home is accompanied by sour cream. Did you know that the Land O’Lakes Sour Cream is now Dean’s DairyPure Sour Cream, with the same great taste that families have loved and trusted for years? We keep it stocked, as it is made with fresh cream and milk from their own dairy, with no artificial growth hormones. Like every DairyPure product, it’s backed by an exclusive 5-Point Purity Promise: DairyPure Sour Cream contains no artificial growth hormones, is tested for antibiotics, is continually quality tested to ensure purity, only comes from cows fed a healthy diet and is cold shipped from your trusted dairy.

One day I was craving baked potatoes and cheddar broccoli. Instead of making them as two separate side dishes, I decided to make them into one.

Broccoli & Cheddar Stuffed Twice Baked Potatoes Recipe

Broccoli & Cheddar Stuffed Twice Baked Potatoes

Ingredients:

  • 5 medium/large russet potatoes
  • Olive Oil
  • 2 cups of chopped broccoli florets
  • 4 tablespoons softened butter
  • ½ cup DairyPure Sour Cream
  • ¼ cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups shredded mild cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon dry dill weed
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • Fresh chopped chives, for garnish
  • DairyPure Sour Cream, for topping

Pre-heat oven to 425°. Scrub the potatoes very well. Pat dry and lightly brush with olive oil.

Pierce each potato 4-5 times with a fork. Place potatoes on a large foil-lined baking sheet.

Bake approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. Turn potatoes over after 50 minutes. Once tender when pierced with a fork, remove from the oven.

While potatoes are baking, blanch the chopped broccoli. To do this, fill a large pot with water. Add a teaspoon of salt and bring to a rapid boil. Once boiling, add the chopped broccoli. Boil for about 1-2 minutes, until crisp tender. Strain and run under cold water or give them an ice bath. Set aside.

Slice baked potatoes in half, lengthwise and hallow out each half, leaving about ¼” shell (as shown in above picture). Place the scooped out potatoes into a large mixing bowl.

To make the filling, add the buttermilk, butter, shredded cheese, salt, pepper, onion powder, dry dill weed, and paprika to the scooped out potatoes in the bowl. Mix thoroughly, lightly mashing any large potato clumps.

    First you make a very creamy and rich egg custard. Then you stir in butter, fresh lemon juice, bits of lemon rind and sour cream. Pour this refreshing filling into a baked pie shell, chill the pie, and garnish it with sprigs of mint and thin slices of lemons.

    Lemon Turnovers in Sour Cream Pastry

    Total time
    1 hour 5 mins

    Lemon Turnovers in Sour Cream Pastry – tart homemade lemon curd in a light flakey, shortcut pastry recipe.
    Serves: makes 8 to 10 turnovers
    Ingredients
    For the Lemon Curd
    6 lightly beaten egg yolks
    1 cup sugar
    ½ cup fresh lemon juice
    zest of two lemons, finely minced
    ½ cup butter cut into small pieces
    For the Sour Cream Pastry
    3 cups all purpose flour
    2 cups very cold butter
    1 tsp salt
    1 cup sour cream
    Instructions
    To prepare the Lemon Curd
    In a mall saucepan combine the egg yolks, sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest.
    Cook slowly over medium low heat for about 10 minutes stirring constantly until the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon.
    Remove from heat and stir in the butter a few pieces at a time until completely smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and chill completely in the fridge.
    To prepare the Sour Cream Pastry
    Cut butter into the flour and salt with a food processor or pastry blender until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Small pieces of butter should still be visible in the mix. Stir in the sour cream to form a dough. Form dough into two rectangles, wrap in plastic and rest in the fridge for 20 minutes.
    Roll out dough to about ¼ inch thickness and cut into 4 inch squares. Spoon a heaping teaspoon of lemon curd into the center of each pastry square and fold over. Press the edges down firmly with the tips of your fingers to seal. Place the turnovers on a parchment lined baking sheet.
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and bake for 20-25 minutes until light golden brown. Cool for at least 20 minutes before serving.
