Twice Baked Potatoes

twice-baked-potatoes.jpg

One of my favorite dinner memories as a kid was coming to the table and seeing my mother's version of this delicious recipe. It's one step beyond the plain old “baked potatoes with a pat of butter on the side” that we would typically eat and it was exciting to have a new twist on a dinner time staple!

I decided to give my recipe an even bigger nutritional boost by tossing in some broccoli florets (which my family loves), but feel free to substitute broccoli with peas, greens or any other veggie your little one digs. You can even defrost something you have in the freezer if you don't feel like cutting up fresh.
With just a little more effort, you can turn you dinner from "mmm...potatoes" to "MMMMMM!!!....twice baked potatoes!”
