Why would I want to freeze this?

  1. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Scoop out the inside, leaving a 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch layer of potato in the skin. Place scooped out flesh in a large bowl.
  2. Mash the cooked potatoes with a fork or potato masher. Note: they should be lumpy, not smooth.
  3. Add steamed broccoli, cheddar cheese #1, sour cream, ranch dressing, and garlic powder to potatoes. Mix well.
  4. Add mixture back to hollowed out skins.
  5. Top with remaining cheddar cheese #2.
  6. Wrap each potato in plastic wrap and place in a gallon freezer bag, label & freeze.
