Turkey Cheddar Broccoli Stuffed Potatoes

Hi guys! Sorry I’ve been a little absent. In mid May we had a bout of storms come through that felt as if they lasted for weeks. During one of the many rainy, windy storms our internet got royally messed up, and I wasn’t able to do much blogging at all. Actually, I wasn’t able to do any.  I posted about it on social media, but if you missed the post, there’s the reason for y’all! I’m here, don’t worry. We got it all fixed up so hopefully that means I can start posting just about everything I have been photographing for the last month. First up are these deliciously filling, Turkey Cheddar Broccoli Stuffed Potatoes!

The folks over at Jennie O sent me these incredible premium portioned fully cooked turkey breasts in the beginning of May for the switch circle blogger program. They sent very generous packages of turkey and let me tell you, between Eric and I they didn’t last more than a week and a half. We tried the hickory sun-dried tomato basil seasoned breast, a hickory smoked cajun breast, and an oven roasted breast all of which were absolutely amazing. It’s fully cooked which makes it perfect to add to meals for a flavorful and lean protein. I used it on sandwiches, in salads, and in these delicious loaded potatoes. I’ll show ya what I did in just a minute here so you can make them for yourselves too. These guys make a delicious fuss-free dinner that everyone can enjoy, are perfect to reheat for lunches throughout the week, and I’ll be honest, they even taste pretty yummy straight out of the fridge, in my hand, and cold. Since I’ve been away for a bit I feel like it may take a post or two to really get back into he swing of things, but I’ll be honest blogging seems to be a lot like riding a bike. Once I opened the computer, signed into my page, and clicked ‘create post’ the words started flowing a lot easier than I anticipated. I can’t wait to share some real goodies in the next few weeks. Being unable to work on the blog made a lot more time for cooking and eating. Lots of eating. I need this blog to keep my hands busy, that’s for sure.

Let’s get in the kitchen and make some of these glorious stuffed baked potatoes, shall we?

Buuuut first, can we talk about how a bouquet of flowers will never compare to a little fist full of weeds? Gees. My heart. We spend almost every morning outside that we can and almost every morning I am given a little fist full of dandelions. It’s just perfect.

Okay, first things first! Scrub your taters with a brush and some water then spray them with a little cooking spray, sprinkle with a lil salt, and pop’m in the oven at 400 degrees for about an hour or until they are done.

When they are done cooking remove from the oven and let them cool for a bit before handling. I usually start prepping the other ingredients when there’s about 10 minutes left to cook the potatoes then I start the whole stuffin’ potato process.

Grab some turkey breast, for this recipe I used Jennie O Premium Portions Oven Roasted Turkey Breast, and let me tell ya, this stuff is scrumptious. I could just take a big bite out of it. I might have.

Look at all that flavor on the outside.

Chop it up into small bite size pieces. You’ll need 10 ounces or about 1 1/2 cups!

Next chop up about 2 cups (2 crowns) of broccoli. Green Goodness! (You can also grab frozen broccoli, let it thaw just enough so you can chop it up and you can skip the steaming process) Use whatever is easiest for ya!

If using fresh broccoli, quickly steam it up just enough about 2-4 minutes. I actually steamed this stuff about a minute too long. So, don’t do that.

Now the taters should be cool enough to handle. They will still probably be fairly warm, I always fold a dish cloth and hold it in my hand to cut the potato to make two halves.

Scoop the insides into a bowl and leave just enough potato for a lining so the skin doesn’t break apart. Repeat this step until done cutting and scooping.

Now dump the rest of the goodies in with the potatoes. You’ll add 2 tbs dried minced onion, 1 tsp garlic powder, 2-3 tsp Lawry’s Seasoned Salt, 1/2 cup light sour cream, 3 tbs 2% milk, and about 1 1/4 cups of cheese made with 2% milk.

Mash it all up!

Fold in the chopped turkey breast and broccoli!

Mmmmm… Take a tiny little bite and add some salt and pepper to taste.

Stuff your spuds!

Pop’m back in the oven for about 20 minutes.

These complete me.

Kick these tasty taters up a notch by drizzling them with some of my Skinny Ranch!

Make these yesterday. Make these tomorrow. Make these right now!

Lots of love from my kitchen to yours,

    Delish!!! We subbed rotisserie chicken for the Turkey and probably were heavy on the cheese but they were amazing! My husband and I did them together so the division of labor helped them not be too labor intensive. I can see how this would be a lot to do alone during the week for your family. So, so, so stinking good though!!!!

    1. So happy you enjoyed them! Double/twice baked potatoes are totally a labor of love but so worth it when you have the extra time!

  2. Here’s the thing, they’re really tasty and I love everything that’s in them, especially the broccoli for a bit of nutritional value. However ohmygoodness is it labor intensive. I was in the kitchen for the most part of 2 hours. Unfortunately because of that I won’t make them again, but it is a delicious recipe, Star!

    I’m new to your blog but so far everything I’ve tried has gone over well with the husband and 3 year old. Recently, no matter what you put in front of the little one, he says “I don’t like that.” Fortunately we’re consistent in encouraging him to try, which he does and typically decides it’s ok, but eats at varying quantities. Tonight’s potatoes got no initial feedback and after his first bite he said “this is really good mommy!” Just before the leftovers went in the fridge, he told me “I like those” unsolicited. We’ll call this one a win! Thank you 🙂

  4. I have raw ground turkey breast- do you think that would work ok? I would obvi cook it first. What should I season it with?

    Do you get 2 stuffed potato halves for only 6sp?! That’s incredible. They’re so filling and yummy.

  6. Hi. Do you think it would be ok to sub non-fat plain Greek yogurt for the low-fat sour cream? Or would it change the consistency/taste?

    1. That should work just fine! There’s a bunch of other flavors going on so it shouldn’t affect the taste much at all. I hope you enjoy!

  7. Mmmm, I’m a huge fan of Jennie-o turkey products so I can easily imagine how delicious this would be. I’ll be scouring all of our stores to find these seasoned turkey breasts. I can’t wait to try this!

    1. I hope you can find it! They are in all my stores around here so I think it should be easy enough to find! If you go to http://www.jennieo.com they should have a store locator! If not you can always use some deli turkey chopped up or rotisserie chicken!
