How to Make the Perfect Baked Potato

A little behind the scenes step to this recipe is know how to make that perfect baked potato – and it is so easy.  All you need to do is:

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Rinse 2 large russet potatoes
  3. Rub them lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with a little salt
  4. Pierce them 4-5 times with a fork
  5. Bake on the oven rack for 60 minutes, or until they feel soft

Isn’t that easy!

And now for this Healthy Twice Baked Potato recipe – this is something I make for my family all the time.  I am allergic to dairy and me and my family eat Whole30 about 80% of the time, so this is one of our go-to side dishes (that my kids LOVE).  It is made with coconut milk and ghee and I swear you can’t even tell the difference! I love throwing the broccoli in there (but you could get creative – mushrooms, spinach, etc.) for some extra nutrients.  Don’t forget to top it with some homemade Whole30 ranch dressing!  I hope you guys enjoy it!

Is Broccoli Good For You?

Broccoli is a great source of vitamins K and C, a good source of folate (folic acid) and also provides potassium, fiber. Vitamin C.

Description

These Healthy Twice Baked Potatoes with Broccoli are going to be your new favorite side dish!!  Whole30-compliant, paleo and dairy-free!

Ingredients 

  • 2 Large Russet Potatoes
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 2 teaspoons Salt, divided
  • 2 Cups Broccoli Florets
  • 1 Tablespoon Ghee
  • 1/4 Cup Full Fat Coconut Milk, always blend your coconut milk before cooking with it so it is fully combined

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Wash potatoes and then take 1 Tablespoon of olive oil and rub lightly over all potatoes.
    2 Large Russet Potatoes, 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • Pierce every potato 4 times with a fork.
  • Taking 1 teaspoon of salt, sprinkle lightly over both potatoes.
    2 teaspoons Salt
  • Bake for 60 minutes, or until just slightly soft when you gently squeeze.
  • When the potatoes have 10 minutes left, place broccoli florets in medium sauce pan and add just enough water to cover the bottom.
    2 Cups Broccoli Florets
  • Cover and bring to a boil.
  • Stir the broccoli and cover again.
  • Let simmer for 3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and strain; set aside.
  • When potatoes are done and have cooled slightly, cut each potato lengthwise.
  • Using a spoon, scoop out the insides of the potato halves, leaving approximately 1/2 inch around the skin; place the scooped out insides in a medium mixing bowl.
  • Add ghee, coconut milk and 1 teaspoon salt to the potato and mash with a potato masher.
    1 Tablespoon Ghee, 1/4 Cup Full Fat Coconut Milk, 2 teaspoons Salt
  • Taste and add additional coconut milk to make creamier or more salt, to taste.
  • Add broccoli and stir to mix.
  • Scoop the broccoli mixture back into the potato skins, ensuring each skin holds approximately the same amount.
  • Place potatoes on a lined baking sheet and broil on high for 3-5 minutes, watching very carefully so they don't burn. You want the tips of the potatoes to just barely turn brown.
  • Serve immediately with your favorite ranch dressing (I recommend a Whole30 complaint ranch if you have it)

Notes

Twice baked potatoes can be wrapped in plastic and foil and placed in the freezer for up to 3 months.
