Recipe Ingredients:

1 4 large (roughly 10 oz each) baking potatoes, raw, with skins scrubbed

4 cups chopped broccoli, raw

4 oz low-fat turkey bacon, uncooked

3 tbsp water

8 oz reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese

Salt and pepper (to taste)


Prick potato skins with fork several times. Wrap in damp paper towel and microwave until cooked through, about 5 minutes per potato.  

While potatoes are cooking, bring a skillet to medium-high heat. Place turkey bacon in skillet and cook until crisp, about 5 minutes per side. 

Remove potatoes from microwave. Place broccoli in small bowl with 3 tablespoons water. Cover with damp paper towel and microwave on high until steamed, about 4 minutes.  

While broccoli is cooking, split potatoes in half lengthwise. Crumble bacon into bits. Arrange each potato on a plate.

Remove broccoli from microwave and drain water. Place ¼ of broccoli on each potato, topping each with 1 slice crumbled turkey bacon. Top each potato with 2 ounces shredded cheese and microwave on high until cheese is melted, about 10 seconds. Sprinkle salt and pepper over potatoes.
