Ingredients

  • 3 potatoes (medium)
  • 8 ounces turkey, chicken, beef, or pork, diced and cooked
  • 1 cup broccoli (coarsely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup onion (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup carrot (thinly sliced)
  • 3/4 cup water (hot)
  • 3/4 cup non-fat milk
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup cheese, shredded low-fat

Directions

1. Wash your hands and work area.

2. Scrub potatoes. Remove any bad spots. Do not peel. Cut each in half.

3. In a covered saucepan, boil potatoes in just enough water to cover the pieces. When they are fork-tender (about 15 to 20 minutes), remove from heat and drain. Set aside. (Note: you can also pierce whole potatoes with a knife or fork in several places and cook in microwave without water until fork tender, then cut each in half).

4. Meanwhile, in a skillet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, combine cooked meat, broccoli, onion, carrots and water.

5. Boil until vegetables are fork tender - about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low.

6. In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine milk, flour and pepper. Shake well.

7. Stir flour mixture into meat mixture until well blended.

8. Stir in cheese. Cook over low heat about 5 minutes longer or until sauce thickens, stirring frequently.

9. To serve, place 2 potato halves on each plate and mash the middle somewhat. Spoon about one third cup of the meat mixture over each potato half

10. Cover and refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.
