Broccoli burger-topped potatoes

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
½ pounds Extra-lean ground beef;
6 mediums Baking potatoes;
¼ cup Onion; chopped
½ teaspoon Salt;
¼ teaspoon Pepper;
3 tablespoons All-purpose flour;
2 cups Skim milk;
1 tablespoon Prepared mustard;
⅛ teaspoon Hot pepper sauce;
3 cups Frozen cut broccoli;
¾ cup Cheddar cheese; shredded reduced-fat

MICROWAVE DIRECTIONS: Remove any package or wrappers from ground beef.

Place beef on microwave-safe plate. Microwave on defrost for 3 to 4 minutes or until toothpick inserted in beef meets little resistance, turning beef over once during defrosting. Pierce potatoes with fork.

Place in ungreased 13x9" (3-quart) microwave-safe dish. Microwave on high for 24 to 28 minutes or until tender, turning potatoes over halfway through cooking. Wrap in foil; let stand 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet or saucepan cook ground beef, onion, salt and pepper over medium-high heat until beef is no longer pink; drain. Stir in flour; add milk, mustard and hot pepper, stirring constantly. Add broccoli; bring to boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir until thickened. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer uncovered for 5 to 8 minutes or until broccoli is tender.

Reserve 2 tablespoon cheese; stir remaining cheese into sauce until melted. Remove foil from potatoes cut each in half lengthwise, cutting to but not through the bottom of potatoes. Mash slightly with fork. Pour beef and broccoli mixture over potatoes; sprinkle with reserved cheese.
