Shrimp Stuffed Twice Baked Potatoes

Anyone up for some Shrimp Stuffed Twice Baked Potatoes? They were inspired by a great friend of mine, and you can read on to learn more.

It’s hard to believe that our group is celebrating one year this month.

I didn’t come into the group from the very beginning. I got my start with this group on February 11, 2012 with these delicious Pink Champagne Cupcakes with Strawberry Champagne Frosting for the Romance Dinner.

In the past (almost) year, I’ve met some of the best foodies I know, as well as made some wonderful friendships.

With 5 teenagers everyone thinks my life must be crazy, and it can be, but overall I have great kids who are 5 of my best friends in life. We spend every night together around the family table and I am positive it has helped to contribute to the relationships we have.

This week we picked these Shrimp Stuffed Twice Baked Potatoes which are from a past event.

After browsing through my saved recipes, I fell on these Shrimp Stuffed Twice Baked Potatoes from Jen over at Juanita’s Cocina. They were screaming my name.


A few reasons.

  1. I love potatoes. And cheese. And shrimp. Add them all together in Shrimp Stuffed Twice Baked Potatoes and I’m sold.
  2. I love 5 ingredient or less meals. This one was for our 5 ingredient or less meals #SundaySupper. I added stuff to it because I could. I’m willing to bet that when Jen makes these (after that 5 ingredient event) she adds stuff to it too.
  3. I love Jen. Her blog. Her food. Her recipes. Her photography. Her state (yes the one she lives in – she lives in Texas y’all… and I used to live in Dallas and miss it terribly!). I feel like we’re kindred spirits of sorts. Every time she posts something, I think… Oh! I need to make that. EVERY.TIME. So I  just decided this was a good time to knock one out.

Of course I will tell you right now, that if you want to see how beautiful these Shrimp Stuffed Twice Baked Potatoes are, and how mouth watering they truly look, you have got to go check out Jen’s pictures.

Her photos for these Shrimp Stuffed Twice Baked Potatoes far outweigh mine in every category and I cannot deny her food always looks AMAZING.

I still think mine look pretty. Just not as.

Original Recipe:

  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 8 ounces butter
  • 4 cups grated cheese I used a cheddar and monterrey jack pre-shredded mix
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 pounds shrimp cooked
  • Salt and pepper

My additions:

  • 2 Tablespoons minced Garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons diced onion
  • ¼ teaspoons paprika
  • ¼ teaspoons basil


  • Precook the potatoes in the oven or on the grill.
  • Once your potatoes are cooked, allow them to cool until you can handle them. (this took at least 25 minutes for me)
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Slice each potato in half and scoop out the insides of each half. Leave a wall of the potato flesh (about a ¼ inch of potato) attached to the skin.
  • Place the scooped out flesh into a bowl.
  • Add the butter, sour cream, cheese, garlic, onion, paprika, basil and salt and pepper (to taste) to the bowl with the potatoes. Mix ingredients together until they are well-combined.
  • Fold the shrimp into the potato mixture, mixing gently.
  • Spoon the potato/shrimp mixture into the potato skins. Don’t overfill, or they will drip out all over the place during cooking. Trust me. haha
  • Sprinkle a small amount of shredded cheese on the top of the potatoes before putting them in the oven.
  • Bake potatoes for 20 minutes or potatoes are heated through and cheese is melted.
  • Serve immediately.

  1. I loved twice baked potatoes. I use to make them a lot when I was single as a good comfort meal

    1. Thank you sweet friend, not as great as yours, but I was content. haha

      I am so glad you feel that way, because I feel exactly that same way about you. You are definitely a great friend, you have great taste in food, your blog is freakin’ adorable and you live in my dream world. It can’t get much better than that!! Thank you #SS for giving me Jen!

  2. wow 5 teenagers! I see you in a different light now, you must be a supermom Nicole. I feel sundaysupper is way important, I never realized that in my teens and I have to admit it took me some time to realize the value in it. I am glad too that I joined, its a great group of inspiring and talented food bloggers!

    I think so your shrimp stuffed baked potatoes casserole is calling out my name too. *drool*

    1. Hi Helene! Yes, yes. 5 Teenagers. haha I am so NOT a supermom, I think I am just super blessed to have 5 good teenagers rather than 5 “typical” teenagers. ha! They are nothing like I was when I was a teen… that’s a GOOD thing!
      I am so glad you have joined us for #SundaySupper and cannot wait to get to know you better. Thank you so much!

    1. They really are fantastic. We are a bit addicted at the moment… and I fear we will be eating these a lot. Not a genuine fear… well not really… maybe for my waistline. But regardless they are absolutely scrumptious and I know we will be making them often.
      I’m so glad you tried them too, so you know EXACTLY how amazing they are.

  3. Where do I even begin Nicole….. I am so glad that Triberr brought us together! I somehow wound up on your tribe when I first started blogging and I will never forget the power of your words… when you took a look at my pathetic blog… “Let me help you.” I still to this day feel guilty at my first reaction. I can still remember saying to Ron, this girl that I hardly know says she wants to help me… what do you think? Boy did you teach me a lesson… Not only did you help me, you believed in me, you encouraged me, you inspired me… I am honored to call you my friend.
    I thank you for teaching me a lesson and for being you.

  4. I love twice baked potatoes,but never tried making them at home!This recipe looks easy and with the shrimp and cheese,I’m sold too 🙂

  5. Totally agree with you on everything in this post – everything. What a great year it has been with Sunday Supper and all the fantastic people involved. I’m glad I we connected because of it and I look forward to each one of your posts too. It’s going to be another even better year ahead, my friend.

  6. I am with you on all three of your reasons for loving this recipe. I must have missed it when Jen posted it the first time. Pinning now on Recipes to Try!

  7. I’m in love with this dish! I agree with you on all three counts, Nicole – I love potatoes/cheese/shrimp, easy meals and Jen. And I think your photos look divine – they make me want to reach into my screen to grab a piece of that hot, crispy potato wedge smothered in melted cheese. *wipes drool from face* I’m so glad we’ve met each other through Sunday Supper, Nicole. I’m looking forward to many more good times in the years to come!

  8. My goodness…do these look scrumptious! There’s something about melted cheese that always reels me in!!! And knowing that these were well loved by you and Jen just means I must try these. Perfect for Lent!!!

  9. Looked great the first time and looks great the second time around! It’s been fun getting to know you and the rest of the Sunday Supper crew!

  10. I love the idea of adding shrimp to a twice baked potato! Sounds and looks wonderful Nicole. Happy birthday to #SundaySupper and thank you for all you do our group!
