baked potatoes with broccoli cheese sauce...

This is a new favorite dinner at our house! Baked potatoes are hearty and filling and perfect on a cold night. Pair with a green salad and call it good. For my family I cooked five large russets it was the perfect amount of sauce. Bake potatoes at 425 degrees for 45 min to one hour. Prick potatoes with a fork several times and rub with olive oil and salt and pepper first before placing in oven.

1 head of broccoli, cut into florets 
1 cup milk 
1/2 Tbsp butter
1/4 tsp seasoned salt (Lawrey's)
1/4 tsp pepper 
1/8 tsp salt 
1/8 tsp chili powder 
6 oz Velveeta, cut into cubes 
2 oz cheddar cheese, grated 
2 oz Monterey Jack cheese, grated 

Steam broccoli for 3-4 min, or until slightly tender. Set aside.

Heat butter and milk over medium low heat until hot. Stir in seasonings. Add Velveeta and stir until melted and creamy. Stir in cheddar and Jack cheese until melted. Taste and adjust seasoning (add a little salt if necessary)
