So the brownies were in the oven and Yay! I get to sit and relax for a bit. What?! It’s time for lunch?? What do you mean it’s time for lunch??
That presented an issue I wasn’t yet prepared for….what to do for lunch? So, looking at the bag of potatoes on the floor, I remembered a recipe/idea I came across a few weeks ago and marked for ‘some undetermined future use’. Undetermined schmundetermined! Today’s lunch will be Broccoli cheese topped potatoes.
I found this recipe/idea on http://mealplanningmommies.blogspot.com/.
Vegetable Stuffed Potato
Just 4 easy Ingredients:
Cream of Broccoli and Cheese soup (I used 2 cans low-fat. Could not find an organic alternative)
4 potatoes (or one per person being served)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3 cups frozen broccoli mix. (I omitted)
I added some chopped ham to the mix
Rinse and scrub potatoes. Poke several times with a fork. Wrap with paper towel and microwave until cooked. (about 5-6 minutes per potato) I zapped each one separately.
Cut potato in half and smush down with fork.
Cook broccoli mixture in microwave according to the directions.
Mix soup, cheese, and broccoli mixture.
Scoop cheesy broccoli mixture over potato. Enjoy!
Everyone enjoyed this lunch. Pretty quick and easy and certainly a healthier more well rounded alternative to most lunch choices. Don’t get me wrong, mac and cheese and pb&j; are proven successful and mighty tasty but this is a great option when looking for something outside the box…lunch box that is.
Enjoy the yummy topped taters!
