Ingredients

uncooked potato(es)

4 large

garlic clove(s)

1 medium clove(s), minced

frozen chopped broccoli

10 oz, thawed and squeezed dry

fat free cottage cheese

1 cup(s)

Weight Watchers Reduced Fat Mexican style blend shredded cheese

¾ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450ºF. Pierce potatoes in several places with a fork. Bake until tender, about 45 minutes.
  2. Lightly coat a large skillet with cooking spray and warm over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook 1 minute. Add broccoli and cook, stirring frequently, 2 minutes. Stir in cottage cheese and cheddar cheese and cook, stirring until cheddar melts, about 2 minutes.
  3. Cut a 1-inch slit into each potato and squeeze to create an opening. Stuff each with about 1/2 cup filling.

Notes

If you're in a hurry, microwave the potatoes on high-power for about 15 minutes, instead of baking them.
