Healthy Broccoli Cheddar Potato Skins

Ingredients
  1. 1 medium red potato
  2. 1/3 c chopped broccoli (about 5-6 florettes)
  3. 1/8 tsp salt, divided
  4. 1 tbsp shredded cheddar
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°, and lightly coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Pierce the potato multiple times with a fork, place on a microwave-safe plate, and microwave on HIGH for 4-5 minutes, flipping halfway through, or until fork tender. Let the potato rest for 2 minutes before slicing in half.
  3. Scoop out the insides of the potato with a spoon, reserving for another use, and leaving a 1/8”-thick border. Place the potato halves on the prepared baking sheet, and lightly spray with cooking spray. Sprinkle with half of the salt, and bake at 400° for 5 minutes.
  4. While the potatoes cook, place the broccoli in a microwave-safe bowl, and cover with plastic wrap. Cook for 1 minute on HIGH, and let the broccoli sit for 1 minute before removing the plastic wrap. Sprinkle with the remaining salt (and a little black pepper, if desired).
  5. Remove the potatoes from the oven, and evenly distribute the broccoli between the two halves. Top each half with 1 1/2 teaspoons of cheddar cheese. Bake at 400° for 3 minutes or until cheese melts.
