The recipe sounded yummy but after reading the other reviews I decided to do something about the loss of cheese. I wrapped the shrimp cheese & bacon in Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry and made little bundles. I brushed the bundles with an egg wash and baked at 400 degrees for about 35 minutes. Yum! Read More

Excellent concept. I went a bit further with it though. I bought a ring of pre-cooked shrimp - plucked the tails and marinated them for an afternoon in 1tbs olive oil 1tsp lemon juice 1/2 tsp old bay seasoning and 1 1/2 tsp minced garlic. Then I wrapped them and the cheese in bacon sprinkled with parmesan/romano cheese blend and wrapped in a puff pastry square... oh my.... are they EVER GOOD! Thanks much for the ideas! Read More

I read all the other ratings and seen ppl were saying the cheese was comming out. So this is what I did. I used pre peeled and devained shrimp. I butterflied it the opposite way. Cut down the underside rather than the back side like your sapposed to. The side opposite of where it was devained. This way there was very little cheese comming out and you could still taste it. I also broiled them in the oven untill the bacon was crispy. I made these on Valentines Day for my b/f and we LOVED them! Read More

I have been making this tasty little app for awhile. Butterflying the shrimp is not necessary. I also use pepper jack cheese which adds just a little kick. While I dont think there is much you can do with the cheese melting out a little Ive noticed that if you use the half of bacon that isn't so "lacy" it works better. Also if you broil this treat for about 5-7 minutes instead of baking the bacon crips up quite nicely. It is very delicious and guests go nuts for them! Read More

This got 5 stars from me for its ability to be quick easy and elegant all at the same time. I had asaigo cheese insted of the jack. I sprinkled with paprika and froze the little tid bits before cooking it helped the shrimp to not over cook befor the bacon browned. I served scattered over a large cesar salad on a beautful clear glass tray. What a dinner. Thanks for the inspiration. Read More

Excellent! My only problem was keeping the cheese in the wrap. It melted out into the pan. Read More

I love this recipe. Freezing the cheese pieces helps cut down on the melt. As mentioned before partially pre-cooking the bacon is helpful. So with frozen cheese and pre-cooked bacon it takes less cooking time and you'll have less cheese melt. Read More

Absolutely DELICIOUS!!! My children even loved it!The cheese coming out into the pan wasn't a big deal. It stayed connected to the pieces so I just scooted the extra cheese over with the spatula and when I took the off the pan I scooped all of the cheese off with them. My husband marinated the shrimp all day in one of his special marinades then I served them over a salad of spinach cauliflower carrot and tomato. My kids wanted ranch dressing but I used roasted red pepper italian MMMMM!!!! Read More
