Ingredients

  • 6 medium baking potatoes (6 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce, divided
  • 1 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1 large sweet red pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh broccoli florets, finely chopped
  • 1 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese, divided

Directions

  1. Scrub and pierce potatoes. Bake at 400° for 40-50 minutes or until tender. Cool slightly; cut each potato in half lengthwise. Scoop out the pulp, leaving a thin shell (save pulp for another use). Place potato shells on an ungreased baking sheet.
  2. Combine butter and 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce; brush over shells. Broil 4 in. from the heat for 5 minutes or until edges are crispy and butter is bubbly. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the onions, red pepper, broccoli, 3/4 cup cheese and remaining hot pepper sauce; spoon into potato skins. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Broil 2-3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
