Bring the goodness of a garden onto your palate – in just one bite – with these simple yet special Bracket Buster Tater Bites that are stuffed with super fresh ingredients to provide both flavor and fun for your tongue – ah!

Ingredients

  • 6 potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup milk, any kind
  • 3 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 red belle pepper, diced
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 4 tablespoons toasted sunflower seeds
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds

Preparation

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pierce potatoes with a fork then bake for one hour or until soft. Alternately, place in a microwave and cook for five minutes, turning every few minutes, until tender.
  • 2 Allow potatoes to cool a few minutes then cut to create boats, either long-ways in half or zigzag across the midline or, in half short-ways. Scoop out most of the pulp, leaving enough to support the skin to be used as a boat.
  • 3 In a bowl, mash potato pulp then adds milk and season with salt and pepper.
  • 4 In a skillet over medium-high heat, combine oil and onion, stirring well and cooking for about 4 minutes then add broccoli and bell pepper and cook until broccoli gets bright about 4 minutes.
  • 5 Add garlic, sunflower seeds, basil and sesame seeds and stir then cook for about 2 minutes then remove from heat.
  • 6 Fill potato skins half full with mashed potato mixture then spoon vegetable mixture on top. Serve immediately or hold warm in an oven.
