BAKED POTATOES WITH BROCCOLI AND CHEESE SAUCE
2 Large Idaho Baking Potatoes
1 Cup prepared packaged White Sauce
3/4 Cup Grated cheddar cheese
2 Cups Broccoli Flowerets
Black pepper, optional
3 Hard-cooked eggs, optional
Prepare baked potatoes in microwave or oven. Steam broccoli for about 7 minutes.
(If adding eggs, hard-boil them while the broccoli is steaming.) Prepare white
sauce according to directions and stir in grated cheese when the sauce is
thickened. After cheese melts stir until blended. (If using eggs, peel them and
mash into fine bits with a fork (as if for egg salad), stir until whites and
yellows are evenly mixed.
Cut potatoes in half and fluff a little with a fork, top with equal amounts of
broccoli florets and cheese sauce. Sprinkle egg on top of it all. Add salt and
pepper if desired. A sprinkle of paprika on the top is a colorful contrast and
