Shrimp Kisses

I found this recipe on and since bacon is the most perfect food, and with cheese and shrimp as well - it seemed like the perfect appetizer! My only alteration is that I can't really do without putting some sort of seasoning on things, so I added a dash of Old Bay Seasoning on the cheese before wrapping in the bacon - it melted into the shrimp and was fantastic!

Shrimp Kisses

1 (8 ounce) package Monterey Jack cheese, cut into strips
40 large shrimp - peeled, deveined and butterflied
20 slices bacon, cut in half
Old Bay seasoning, to taste.

1. Preheat the oven to 450' F (220' C).
2. Place a small piece of cheese into the butterflied opening of each shrimp, then add a dash of Old Bay. Wrap half of a slice of bacon around each one to conceal the cheese, securing with toothpicks. Place on a cookie sheet.
3. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until bacon is browned.

Serves 8.
