10 Minute Broccoli Cheddar Potatoes

I recently bought a gigantic 3 pound bag of potatoes at the store, so our family has been thinking of various ways to eat them. I tried looking up broccoli cheddar potato recipes on Google, but all I was finding were recipes that took an hour to heat the potato in the oven and make cheese sauce on the stove, etc. I wanted something quick and easy, I don’t have an hour to cook every night!

So basically, the microwave is your best friend throughout this recipe. If you have more time to spend, you have the option of:

  • Cooking the potato in the oven.
  • Steaming the broccoli on the stove.
  • Creating cheese sauce.

For simplicity’s sake, I am going to explain exactly how I made my gluten free broccoli cheddar potato, and how you can create your own in less than 10 minutes.

Quick Broccoli Cheddar Potatoes


  • 2 medium-sized potatoes
  • 3/4 cup Shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1.5 cups Chopped broccoli
  • Butter


  1. Poke holes in each potato with a fork or small knife. I usually poke about 6-8 holes in various spots on a potato.
  2. Microwave one potato for 3 minutes 30 seconds.
  3. Remove (carefully, because it will be hot) from microwave and slice open (see pic #2).
  4. Scoop out a little bit of potato on each side and discard. Spread butter over the rest of the potato (pic #3).
  5. Sprinkle a little bit of cheese on each side, then add broccoli. Sprinkle more cheese on top of the broccoli (pic #4).
  6. Put back in microwave and cook for 1 minute 15 seconds to 1 minute 30 seconds.
  7. Remove and let cool for a couple minutes. Repeat with other potato.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
