Game day called for handheld snacks! These baked potato skins are topped with broccoli, Cheddar cheese, and a drizzle of Ranch dressing for easy portability and snacking, even during the most intense games.

Add chicken to pump up the protein, swap in cauliflower, or top with your favorite cheese to personalize for your family.

Nutrition Tip: Do your kids think broccoli looks like little trees? The name actually comes from the Latin word for “branch”. These tiny branches are loaded with vitamin C and disease-fighting compounds.
