A Recipe and Story ..... For You !
We served her a basic potato with butter and she would add the toppings that we left on the side! Here is an idea for an alternative, one that I make at home every now and then when I only have a few Shrimps on hand.
To your basic Baked potato add:
1 - clove garlic, minced and quickly sauteed in butter
2 - diced shrimps sauteed in butter in the garlic butter, adding more if needed. As you cook add a drop of olive oil to keep the butter from burning.
2 - ounces of chopped mushrooms that you have sauteed in the shrimp's left over butter, adding Thyme to taste.
- Sour Cream to taste
- cheddar cheese, to taste
- Dolly's seasoned salt to taste
Take the insides of the potato out of the shell leaving the shell in tact. You can half the spud or just cut off a cap. In a bowl add the sauteed ingredients, then add the sourcream, cheese and more butter if necessary to make a tasty filling. Season with Dolly's to taste, fill the spud and top with more cheese, parmesan is nice to top it with! Bake in a hot oven ( 350/gas 5 ) until reheated through and the topping is melted, 10 minutes at the most! And, of course,...... Enjoy! And Granny, Enjoy Heaven!
