Baked Potatoes is truly a universal favourite, much loved by people across the world. It can be enjoyed plain, with cheese or with a yummy filling as in this case.

Here, we’ve stuffed the baked potatoes with a scrumptious mixture of broccoli and corn, flavoured with a hint of garlic. Seasoned with pepper and topped with cheese, this is a truly mouth-watering snack that you are sure to enjoy.

You will relish the cheesy mouth-feel, pleasant flavour and satiating feel of this snack, which is a comfort food for many. You can make different variants by changing the filling.

Using the microwave, this version of Baked Potatoes is very easy to make too. So, you can dig into it any time you wish.
