  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Scrub potatoes; prick all over with fork. Place directly on oven rack. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until easily pierced with fork. Remove from oven; let stand 30 minutes to cool slightly. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F; spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Cut baked potatoes in half lengthwise, scoop out insides to within 1/8 inch of skin, and transfer to medium bowl. Mash; stir in sour cream, 1 cup of the Cheddar cheese, the broccoli, bacon, salt and pepper.
  • 3
    Fill potato skins with about 1/3 cup potato mixture each, and place filling side up in baking dish. Top with remaining 1 cup Cheddar cheese. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until cheese is melted and potatoes are heated through. Top with chopped fresh chives.

Expert Tips

  • Russet potatoes vary in size and weight. Using a smaller size works best for this recipe. Buying a 5-lb bag of russet potatoes will be your best bet for getting consistently sized potatoes.
  • These are great for serving to a crowd. Feel free to customize your mix-ins by changing your shredded cheese or type of bacon.
