Loaded baked potato with bacon, broccoli and cheese

I made a delicious loaded baked potato with the leftover baked potato .

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

If the baked potato is refrigerated, warm it up for 45 seconds (maybe a little longer) in the microwave.

Put on an oven-safe plate.

Add a little butter, salt and pepper.

Add the cooked, sliced bacon.

Cut the broccoli into small pieces, put in a small bowl, add a little water, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 45 seconds.

Top with shredded cheese. I used a nacho and taco blend of seasoned cheddar, colby and Monterey jack.

Bake for 8 minutes so the cheese melts.

Update 6/11/2013:Since it's not that hard to pick up the potato, I cooked it on a little sheet pan and transferred it to a plate after cooking. That worked better.

Update 2022-09-23: Made this again. I squished the potato down before adding topping, which worked better. It was delicious!
