These are a bit time consuming, but they're well worth the effort! My friends just love these. I've made them along with grilled steak and chicken, which I'll have leftovers of. But, very rarely...

This recipe was a lot more work than it originally seemed. The thick cut bacon burned before the cheese melted and the shrimp cooked throughly.

Everyone wants these again and again! Thanks!
