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!

Ingredients

  • 2 large russet potatoes 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.
  • Pierce every potato 4 times with a fork.
  • Taking 1 teaspoon of salt, sprinkle lightly over both potatoes.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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)

  1. Are you sure it is a whole tablespoon of salt for only two potatoes? I tried it and it was so so so salty :s

  2. What brand ranch dressing did you use, it looks delicious! I’ve had a hard time finding a ranch dressing that I like, this looks just what I have in mind! Thanks!
