PARTNER POST: The versatile potato is perfect in a multitude of recipes showcasing flavors from around the globe. Get creative with your spuds.
Do surf ‘n turf, potato-style, with flavorful andouille sausage and cajun shrimp. Filled with the flavors of New Orleans, these cheesy, spiced potatoes are delicious pleasers.
The real genius of this recipe revolves around the potato – well, russet potatoes to be exact. Potatoes are a staple in my life, russets in particular. You all know it’s not because I’m a meat and potatoes kind of girl. It’s because potatoes are so gosh darn versatile! There’s an endless stream of recipes you can make from all over the world with potatoes. They are even good for you.
They have those important things like potassium, fiber, vitamin C, B6 and iron – you know, the stuff that keeps you alive and such. Plus they are ridiculously cheap when compared to most of the produce out there AND they don’t taste like kale. I mean, there’s really no way to lose with a potato.
Especially when you’re loading it up with lots of goodies like these New Orleans-inspired twice-baked potatoes. The inspiration for such genius (yes I know, genius is pushing it a bit)? I kept seeing Mardis Gras cake posts floating around the blogosphere, but my patience with baking recently (well baking desserts, i.e. a king cake) has been short. I took my inspiration to dinner instead. Voila, cajun inspired dinner, all packed into a glorious russet potato. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed with this recipe.
