Twice Baked Potatoes With Mushrooms and Shrimp

“This is a recipe that's great to serve to a large group of people. Double or triple the recipe and its awesome for a gathering of friends and family. You can pretty much substitute the mushrooms, shrimp, and bacon for anything else that you like........very versatile. By the way, this recipe says 0 vegetable oil. You still need the oil, that's just how it shows up, sorry.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the potatoes on a baking sheet. Coat and rub the potatoes with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 1 hour until cooked through.
  2. In the meantime, cook the bacon on a griddle or sauté pan over medium high heat until crisp. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and set aside.
  3. Season the shrimp with a little salt and lemon pepper. On the same griddle or pan that you cooked the bacon in, cook the shrimp for about 2 minutes on each side until pink. Set aside in a medium bowl.
  4. Cook the mushrooms in that same griddle or pan that the bacon and shrimp were cooked inches Sauté until tender and season with salt and pepper. Set aside in the bowl with the shrimp and poor the juices from the pan over the mushrooms and shrimp. Chop the bacon into bite size pieces.
  5. Remove the potatoes from the oven and cool long enough to handle them, about 10-15 minutes. Lower the oven heat to 350. Using a sharp knife, cut the potatoes, length wise, in half. Place each half on a bigger baking sheet if needed to fit. With a spoon, scoop out the center of the potato in a large bowl, leaving about a 1/4 inch border along the skin. In the bowl with the potato, add the salt, pepper, seasoned salt, butter, sour cream, milk or cream, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, and 1 cup cheddar cheese. Mash with a potato masher. Add the bacon, mushrooms, and shrimp to the potato mixture and stir to combine with a spoon.
  6. Spoon the filling into each potato halve. Top each potato with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese and sprinkle with cayenne pepper. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until the cheese is melted and the potatoes are heated through. Serve while hot.
  7. (Note: If you want to make these potatoes ahead of time, prepare them up to the point when you fill the potatoes. Do not top with the cheeses and cayenne pepper until right before baking. Cover them with aluminum foil and refrigerate up to 24 hours.).
