"This is a real crowd pleaser! We never have any left! We cook these on the grill, but you can also dip them in tempura batter and deep fry them."

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.

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...

These shrimp are delicious !! We added cajun spices to the shrimp before wrapping just for a little extra heat. Also, heeding other reviewer's advice, I cooked the bacon 1/2 way before wrappin...

This reccipe is a little time consuming, but one of my friends gave it 67 stars. Everyone loved it. The only thing that I changed based upon previous reviews wass to use a thinner cut of bacon...

I precooked the bacon a little bit and put these on a sheet of aluminum foil on the grill on indirect heat. They were harder than I thought to put together and did take some time but once you go...

This was good, but next time I will not use thick bacon because the shrimp were over cooked. I will also try it with green chili peppers.

Everyone wants these again and again! Thanks!
