“5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. When I need a quick go-to recipe, I always have Simply Potatoes and bacon in the fridge, and shrimp in the freezer. This simple supper is as delicious as it is speedy. The Old Bay seasoning works great with both the shrimp and the potatoes, and the bacon brings a smoky richness. Yum!”
8 cups (approx.)
