Twice-baked Potatoes and Broccoli

Twice-baked potatoes are fairly simple, it just takes a while. First you have to bake a couple of potatoes till they're done, then scoop out all the insides. It's sort of like making deviled eggs, but with potatoes. Deviled eggs, on the other hand, are like making twice-baked potatoes, but with eggs.

What you've just scooped out, make mashed potatoes from it. Throw in the milk, butter, salt, pepper, whatever you like to add to your mashed potatoes (roasted garlic is really good; the list is endless so you can be a real snob about what makes it taste best). Then pile it all back into the sad, empty potato-skin shells.

Rowan made a wise choice by sprinkling shredded cheese on top, along with paprika (deviled-egg style!). Pop them back in the oven for a few more minutes; in our case just long enough to steam some brocolli and toast up some french bread.

It's a fairly healthy meal if you use low-fat milk & sour cream. And yogurt butter. And go light on the cheese. And if you're on a low-carb diet you probably want to steer clear as well. But other than that, it really does make you feel like you're eating right. And sorta sleepy.
