Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Microwave the potatoes on High for 12-15 mins until tender. Meanwhile, steam or boil the broccoli for 3 mins, then drain well. When the potatoes have cooled a little, cut them in half lengthways and scoop the insides into a bowl.
  2. Put the potato shells on a baking sheet. Mash the flesh with a fork, then stir in the mustard, egg, most of the cheese and the broccoli. Season if needed, then pile back into the shells. Sprinkle with the reserved cheese and bake for 15 mins until the tops are crisp and golden. Serve with salad and Tomato relish (see recipe, below).

Left out the broccoli and served it as a side dish with fish.

Very yummy. I added some chopped chorizo to them and that was very nice.

I really enjoyed this one, am making it again tonight in fact! I didn't use the egg when I made mine and I baked my potatoes in the oven so the skins were nice and crispy. Don't think I'll boil my broccoli this time, will roast it instead for 5-10 minutes and going to use blue cheese instead of cheddar - I'm looking forward to it already.

Made this last night. I didn't microwave it, or use the egg, used a few tbsp of sour cream when mashing the potato instead. Also forgot to put the mustard in - just realised as I was putting them back in the oven. Served it with bbq beans instead of the salsa. Really nice and the OH gave it the thumbs up too.

I made mine without the salsa but part of a main meal with veg and gravy. Me and my Mum really enjoyed it :)

This is ok, not the best flavour combination as we weren't keen on the mustard but the method is good and it was easy, so fine for a mid week family meal.

These were delicious, I didn't think it was possible to make Jacket Spuds healthy and even more filling! Served with a few spoonfulls of beans on top as it can be quite dry without.

Because you microwave the potatoes cutting out the middles just causes colapse. I have to wedge then in a loaf tin just to keep some shape! A silly recipe which was ok once cooked

Not silly at all. You're just doing it wrong. I thought this recipe was great.

Was tasty and will make again. Very easy. Wouldn't say it was amazing but good for cold weather and healthy.

Enjoyed this recipe however i under cooked the broccoli slightly so it was a little too crunchy. I also baked my potatoes in the oven for 1 1/2 hours (instead of using the microwave) as i find the skin goes crispier and tends to hold its shape a bit better. Next time i'll serve it with the tomato relish to give it more flavour.
