Baked Potatoes Stuffed with Smoked Salmon and Broccoli

If you like, substitute red onions or sweet Vidalia onions for the green onions in these potatoes. If you’re in a hurry, microwave the potatoes; pierce the skin with a fork and microwave for 8 to 10 minutes on the High setting. 

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.

2. Spray the potatoes with cooking oil. Bake them until easily pierced with a fork, about 1 hour. Set aside to cool slightly.

3. While the potatoes are cooling, cook the broccoli in a saucepan of boiling water until tender-crisp, about 4 minutes (or microwave for 2 minutes). Drain, rinse with cold water and set aside.

4. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and carefully scoop the flesh into a bowl, leaving the skins intact. Mash the pulp with the sour cream, milk, garlic and oil. Stir in half the cheese, half the dill, half the green onions, half the smoked salmon and all of the broccoli.

5. Spoon the mixture back into the potato shell and sprinkle with the remaining 2 Tbsp Parmesan. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until heated through.

6. Garnish with the remaining dill, green onion and smoked salmon.
