Twice Baked Broccoli Potatoes

4 medium sized baking potatoes
1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups steamed broccoli
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Bake potatoes (I did mine in the microwave) and allow to cool for about 10 minutes. Slice off one side of the potato lengthwise to make a long opening. Scoop out the flesh into a mixing bowl, leaving about 1/4 inch attached to the skins and set the skins aside. Add yogurt, butter, cheese, and spices to potatoes. Run broccoli through your food processor to chop it into small pieces and add to the potatoes. Stir until well mixed, adding milk or more yogurt if necessary. Scoop potato back into skins and place in a baking dish. Sprinkle more cheese on top if desired. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. (NOTE: You will have more potato than fits into the skins - place the remainder in a small baking dish and place in the oven with the potatoes or simply stick it in the fridge to use another day - we like leftovers, so this is what we do.)
