There is always something good to say about simple and easy. I did make a change, due to what I had on hand. Used green onions and Mexican salami. The salami gave a nice spicy bite which we like. These potatoes are a wonderful change. Thank you for sharing Teresa! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.

I reduced the ham by half as I was serving these with a salmon meal. They had nice flavor- cheesy, creamy, and flavored with the veggies. I made the full recipe and froze 6 halves. I have already successfully microwaved two for a different meal. I'm happy to have the rest in the freezer for future meals. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

I made this recipe on 7/25/16 for two events," Alphabet Soup Tag " game and for the " FYC " game in FFF.I've never heard of adding chicken broth to stuffed potatoes before,so that kind of intrigued me. Since there was just the two of us,the recipe was reduce to two potatoes. Frozen broccoli was used and reduced to 1 cup.Since we're crazy about ham, the full amount was used.And I sort of cheated with the cheese,a bit more was added to the spud mixture. My SO doesn't care for sour cream,so that was left out.After baking for 20 minutes, more cheese was added to the top and baked until lightly browned. We both liked this very much. Thanks for posting,and " Keep Smiling :)
