What foods do you eat for Lent? One of my favorite Lent dishes is Broccoli Cheddar Stuffed Baked Potatoes. Soft, baked potatoes, lightly mashed in the middle and drowning in the cheesiest, creamiest, broccoli sauce that you’ve ever tasted.

If you’re making this for your families then it’s a great dish to encourage green vegetables into their meals!

Steps to make Broccoli Cheddar Stuffed Baked Potatoes


Preheat oven


Preheat the oven to 400 ºF.


Prepare potatoes


Use a fork to randomly pierce 4 potatoes, all over and generously coat with about 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Place on a baking sheet and season with salt.


Bake potatoes


Bake in the preheated oven for 45-60 minutes until very soft.


Prepare cheese sauce


In a medium pot over medium heat, combine 3 tablespoons of butter and 3 tablespoons of flour. Whisk continuously until the mixture melts, begins to bubble and foam. Cook for 1 minute, taking care to not brown the flour.


Add milk


Pour in 3 cups of whole milk and whisk to combine. Bring the mixture to a simmer, continuously whisking until thickened then lower the heat.




Once thickened, season with ½ teaspoon of salt and ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder.


Add Cheddar cheese


Working in batches, add a handful of shredded Cheddar cheese to the sauce and stir through. Allow cheese to fully melt before adding the next batches from 6 oz of cheese in total.


Add broccoli


Once cheese is fully melted, stir in ½ pound of chopped broccoli pieces. Keep warm over a low heat.


Mash potatoes


Once cooked, carefully slice the potatoes open, along the top. Use a fork to lightly mash the inside of the potatoes.




To serve, ladle the broccoli cheese sauce over each potato and garnish with extra shredded Cheddar cheese, if you wish. Enjoy!

Great and simple recipe, thanks so much going to cook it again.

Miyah Finkley

I added a little more spices to mine because I felt it wasn't enough and of course my sauce lol.

Jurnee Domnitz

It takes a while to perfect something like this so that it could taste as good as you imagine it to be, but thats exactly what happened for me, it was the BOMB.

Mayra Hosking

Broccoli and mm, very good!! so creamy and delightful, I put some bacon bits on top of mine too.

Dalia Dailey

My kids ate the whole thing whole, vegies included, thanks so much.

Lindsay Caracoza

The potatoes turned out partially cooked and partially raw, not sure what I did wrong :(

Abril Pringnitz

I wanted to try this out with sweet potatoes instead and i regret nothing!! Yummy.

Araceli Abercrombie

I baked this and some lemon and dill chicken, best lunch i've ever made.

Kairi Godsy

Normally when it comes to potatoes i just stick mine in the microwave for 6 minutes and toss some sourcream and cheese on it, but the way this looked in the photo made me stop being lazy and actually try to cook it up, was fantastic and totally worth it.


When I first saw this i thought itd be just a side dish but it ended up making me full after just two, super good.

Sky Grothaus

Would recommend this only as a side dish and maybe cook some sirloin strips to go with it.

Nathalia Staeheli

Had this made for me and my hubbys anniversary because he loves potatoes, weird i know but it's his favorite.

Heather Hinkle

Made it for dinner for me and the family on family night because I couldnt be bothered making something big, everyone enjoyed it.

Isabela Milsom

I used soy milk instead because I'm lactose intoleherant and ditched the cheese for some goat cheese, was still delicious.

Zaria Vinette

I made these fully mashed instead of baked because I have a hard time chewing anything that isnt soft, was still ultra good.

Cambria Bace

One my favorite lunches, this and the vegetable millet of course, lol.

Carolyn Stepanyan

Can't believe you can actually make a full meal out of just potatoes, this was amazingly good.

Ellen Hoerter

I love potatoes so much, this was really filling and delicious going to be making this again.

Arely Baab

My favorite small dish, its kinda heavy but atleast it keeps you stuffed for 2 or more hours.

Mercy Abramson

Takes a while to get this done but it turned out great anyway.
