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!

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!


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!
