Twice Baked POTATOES

It's pretty much guaranteed that if we get a bag of potatoes in our baskets, I will make these. They make a perfect dinner; fast, filling, and most importantly, delish.  It's originally a weight watchers recipe but really, I just dump stuff in.  I figure out how many potatoes I want, and then just eyeball the amounts of everything to my liking for that day.  Sometimes I love tons of broccoli, other times I am in more of a cheesy mood.  You know how that is, right?

Here's what you need: 

-POTATOES baked with the insides scooped out.  do this carefully.  leave a edge so they don't fall apart.
-BROCCOLI cut into tiny florets and steamed.  (you could use frozen, but I don't like the consistency)
-CHEESE grated
- HAM diced (they are just as good without)

Prepare baked potatoes and carefully scoop out the inside.  In a mixer, combine scooped out potato with the remaining ingredients.  Mix until combined.  Scoop back into potato shells, filling generously.  Bake in a 375 degree oven for 15-20 minutes, until heated through and slightly golden brown. 

Hopefully when we get a 5 lb bag of taters in our baskets, these will become a standby for you too!
