Broccoli and Cheese Potato Skins

4 medium baking potatoes
salt and pepper
1 c finely chopped cooked broccoli
1 c shredded cheddar cheese
4 TBSP real bacon bits (optional)

Scrub potatoes and bake until soft. Let stand 15 minutes, and then cut in half lengthwise. Use a spoon to scoop out flesh from both sides and set aside for another use.

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Spray skins with cooking spray and place on a baking sheet. Sprinkle inside lightly with salt and pepper. Bake for 10 minutes, turning over and spraying the unseaoned side halfway through. (For crispier skins, prebake longer).

Remove skins from oven and turn over so they are skin side down. Top skins evenly with broccoli, cheese, and then bacon bits.

Return to the oven and bake another 10 minutes. Serve with ranch dip or sour cream.
