Blanch the broccoli in boiling water for about 30 seconds and drain. Then plunge them into ice-cold water for 5 minutes. Drain well and set aside.



Cut each potato in half and scoop out the flesh and leaving about ¼ to ½ inch of the potato skin.



Turn the oven to 450˚F. 



Fill the potato skin with broccoli, cheese, bacon, and season lightly with sea salt and black pepper.

Bake the potatoes for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. Serve the potatoes with warm or at room temperature.

  9. @Anonymous{KY}:You can use the potato flesh for prawn cakes http://www.seasaltwithfood.com/2010/05/prawn-cakes.html or mash it with some butter, cream, and salt.
