Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

So I mentioned earlier that my family loves football, well we also love seafood! This was the perfect snack to munch on during the game because come on, I mean shrimp…wrapped in bacon…dipped in warm cheese sauce! What’s not to love about it?

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp (Claire Robinson)

  • 8 jalapenos
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 8 pieces of bacon
  • 16 peeled, de-veined shrimp
  • 1 1/2 c grated monterey or chihuahua cheese
  • 3/4 c half-n-half

Put the oven on broil. Slice the jalapenos in half, removing the seeds and ribs. Place them on a cookie tray and drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper. Roast them in the oven, flipping occasionally, until soft and the skin starts to bubble. Transfer them to a bowl and cut the bacon in half. Bake the half-pieces of bacon on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees. You don’t want to cook the bacon thoroughly, just until it’s pliable.

Now take the shrimp and wrap it in a jalapeno.

Now wrap a piece of bacon around the jalapeno.

Insert a toothpick into the center to hold them together and bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes. Now to make the cheese sauce, you’ll need to see my Double Boiler post to make one, and melt the cheese and half-n-half together. Add a little salt and pepper and serve alongside the shrimp. Enjoy!
