Ingredients

  • 4 russet potatoes
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil or avocado oil
  • 1 tsp kosher sea salt

For the Cheese Sauce

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 tsp kosher sea salt more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp paprika
  • 1 cup medium cheddar cheese grated
  • 2 cup broccoli florets steamed

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil or a baking mat, set aside.
  • Place scrubbed, dried potatoes on the baking sheet. Rub each with oil, sprinkle with sea salt, and prick with a fork three times on each top. Bake for 1 hour or until fork tender (this could take up to 1 hour 15 minutes). Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan set over medium heat, add the butter. When the butter has melted, whisk in the flour, cook for 1 minute. Slowly add milk, whisking to create a smooth sauce. Bring mixture to a low simmer.
  • Add salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika. Simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cheese, then broccoli.
  • Remove top of potatoes, then score the inside and remove about 2 tablespoons of potatoes (you can spoon it onto the tops and serve it with it), scoop a generous amount of the sauce inside of each potato. Return the reserved potato and top back. Serve immediately.
