Preheat oven to 400F.

Wash potatoes. Wrap in foil.

Bake for 1 1/2 hours turning over half way through cooking.

In the meantime, steam broccoli crowns.

Remove potatoes from oven and open from foil. Let sit a few minutes.

Cut potatoes in half and separate. Allow to cool a bit in order to handle.

Take a small spoon or ice cream scooper and hollow out the potato halves. Put in a large mixing bowl.

(Do not scoop all the way to the skin so that you have a stable base.)

To the potatoes, add butter, sour cream, broccoli, green onions, cheese, and seasonings.

With a potato masher or a large whisk, mash all the ingredients together well.

Place the mixture back into the potato shells.

Place on a baking sheet or casserole dish.

Top with more shredded cheddar cheese.

Bake 5-10 minutes to re-heat and melt the cheese.

Remove from oven and serve.
