Recipe: Spicy Shrimp Stuffed Baked Potatoes

Bomb! Bomb! Bomb! That’s all I have to say about this recipe right here ya’ll.  A few of my favorites literally stuffed together.

I wanted to release this recipe the day AFTER Thanksgiving because I know that some of us may have left over sweet potatoes.  When I was at my grandma’s house yesterday, my aunt had a pot full of boiled sweet potatoes that she didn’t use for the rest of her pies.

So here you go.

Question: Thyme is usually my go-to, but how do we feel about sage?  To me, the herb smells better than it tastes.  Not an herb I regularly purchase but since it’s the holidays, I went crazy in the grocery store to force myself to cook with the fresh herbs.

One of my culinary goals was to start incorporating fresh herbs in all my recipes.  I’m so glad I did, because the sage really makes a difference is flavor.

Sage is one of those flavors that make you say “Mmmm this is good!  What’s in this?”

I would like to call this a stress-free, take your time, kind of recipe because I had:

  1. plenty of time, started cooking early in the day
  2. used 1 pan, less clean up
  3. everything washed/chopped
  4. listened to Sade and Daniel Caesar while cooking

The kitchen is where I de-stress & relax, gather my thoughts, and create.  For instance right now I’m in my kitchen  listening to music and drinking a glass of mint-lime water.  My kitchen is my happy place.

  • 2 Sweet Potatoes, Cooked – Boil or Baked
