Baked Potatoes with Broccoli Cheddar Sauce

Mmmmhmmmm. These potatoes are the bomb. Make them, you won't regret the cheesy carby goodness. And they have broccoli so they are TOTALLY healthy, that's what I tell myself.  Recipe adapted from Cooking Classy.

4 medium baking potatoes
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1 cup milk
black pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar
1 cup chopped broccoli florets

Rinse and scrub potatoes. Wrap in foil and bake at 425 for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until cooked through. Remove from oven and set to the side while making the sauce.  Steam the broccoli. Melt butter in a sauce ban and whisk the flour in. Let cook for 2 minutes then stir in the garlic salt and milk. Whisk constantly until the milk mixture begins to thicken up.  Turn off the heat and stir in the cheddar cheese then the broccoli.  Slice open the potatoes and pour the sauce over them.  Serve right away.
