How to make Cheesy Potatoes
First, scrub and clean the potatoes. Bake the potatoes at 325 f. degrees on a cookie sheet lined with foil until done (about 1 hour).
Remove the potatoes from the oven using an oven mitt. Let potatoes cool. Cut the potatoes lengthwise and scrape the inside out into a large mixing bowl.
Make sure to leave enough potato inside to hold the shell together.
Whip the potatoes and whipping cream together in a large mixing bowl. In a skillet melt the butter, add the vegetables, shrimp, and the cap full of liquid crab boil.
Cook the shrimp and vegetables on medium heat stirring continuously until the shrimp is finished cooking.
Stir in the potatoes, Louisiana seasoning, salt and pepper to your liking. Mix all ingredients together well. Remove the potato mixture from the stove.
Place each potato half on a cookie sheet lined with foil. Using a spoon or cookie scoop fill each potato shell with the potato mixture.
Sprinkle cheese on each potato half. Place the potatoes in a 325-degree pre-heated oven.
Bake the potatoes until the cheese melts. Remove the pan from the oven using oven mitts. Serves 8.
