Definitely use the OLD ENGLISH spread that comes in a little jar with a blue top (you can find it where you would find Cheez Whiz ~~ but PLEASE don't use Cheez Whiz for this recipe, it will come out too runny! :) When I originally submitted the recipe I specifically mentioned Old English spread, but I guess this site doesn't allow brand names so it wasn't included...but that's a critical part of this recipe. Something I've started doing is making these without the shrimp but adding chopped chives and green onions to the cheese mixture instead and serving alongside homemade tomato basil soup....I don't think life gets any better than that, especially on a cold winter's night!! ENJOY! :)


Made them as an appetizer for a birthday dinner. They were loved by all. I think I might use slightly larger shrimps next time, and the time after that, and the time after that...........


This is a very easy and quick appetizer. Great to make ahead of time and refrigerate or freeze for later use.
