Speaking of potatoes... This is my most requested recipe.

Twice Baked Potatoes:

4 large bakers
1 medium baker (for extra stuffing)
canola oil
kosher salt
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar
1 small container of sour cream
1/2 pound of thick hardwood smoked bacon (get it in the deli/meat counter. It's SO much cheaper then that crap they sell in packages)
3 large shallots, sliced into rings and separated

Heat oven to 350. Poke the potatoes then coat them in oil and kosher salt. Place directly on rack and cook for one hour or until done. You can put a piece of foil on the rack directly below the potatoes to catch any drippings.

While your potatoes are cooking, cook your bacon in a large skillet. Pull them bacon when nice and crispy and let drain on a paper towel. Crumble when no longer hot. In the bacon grease, fry the shallots until crispy. Drain on paper towel.

When potatoes are done, let cool until you can handle them. Cut them in half length wise (except your spare medium potato, go ahead and chop that up) and scoop out innards and put in a large bowl.

Place your potato boats in a foil lined baking sheet. Mash the potato innards with the sour cream. You don't want really smooth and creamy potatoes so I use a hand held old fashion masher instead of a beater. Gently fold in the cheddar cheese, bacon and fried shallots. Scoop this mixture into your boats and bake for 20 minutes at 350. You can sprinkle some cheddar on top to make it purdy.:D

Shrimp an Cheese Grits

"Shrimp is sauteed with peppers and sweet onion, and served over a pile of hot cheese grits. be sure to have hot pepper sauce on hand to add appropriate spice."

Ingredients:
4 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup cream
1 3/4 cups hominy grits
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 green bell pepper, sliced
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
1/2 yellow bell pepper, sliced
1 Vidalia or sweet onion, thinly sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 pounds fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 dash hot pepper sauce (optional)

Directions

Combine the water and cream in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, and stir in the grits. When the grits start to thicken, stir in the processed cheese, and simmer, stirring occasionally until grits are thick and ready to eat, about 10 minutes.

While you are waiting on the grits, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute the green and red peppers with the onion and garlic. When the grits are almost done, add the shrimp to the saute mixture, and cook for about 5 more minutes, or just until the shrimp is cooked through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve the cheese grits with a generous helping of the shrimp saute over them. Add a dash of hot pepper sauce for heat if you like.

I love these for Sunday morning breakfast.
