Baked potatoes are kind of plain and boring. But because they don’t really taste of anything, you can add lots and lots of fun flavor to help. Broccoli and cheese are one of the classic combinations to put on top of a baked potato, and these are the best ever!
The only thing that can make it better is Chef Shamy Parmesan Basil Garlic Butter. Let’s be honest, Garlic Butter makes everything better. It’s got amazing garlic flavor, the perfect amount of saltiness, and a sharp tang of Parmesan; all things that do wonders for these baked potatoes!
You’ll never do baked potatoes without Garlic Butter again!
One of the reasons I like this recipe is because it’s SO easy. It’s what I call an “assembly recipe,” meaning that there’s very little actual cooking. It’s just assembling simple ingredients to make a meal.
Assembly recipes are great for an easy lunch, or for a quick weeknight dinner. And because it’s potatoes, it’ll be filling enough for the whole family!
