Bacon Fried Shrimp with Pepper Jack Cheese

The Best Bacon Fried Shrimp

When I first had Bacon Fried Shrimp, all I could do was melt into myself with pleasure.   I remember my head tilting back with my eyes closed as that bacon and shrimp exploded with flavor with each bite.  Oh… and did I mention the Pepper Jack Cheese?  Wow!  Each one of these prawns is stuffed with cheese before they’re wrapped with an entire piece of bacon, then they are each seasoned with black ground pepper before they’re fried to perfection.

Grilling Bacon Fried Shrimp

Obviously this recipe is called, “Bacon Fried Shrimp” but don’t let that discourage you from taking these pork prawns to the grill.  These are perfect for barbecue’s and parties.  Technically you could even bake them if you’re little heart ever so desired.  It doesn’t really matter.  Just make sure, like any pork product, it’s cooked thoroughly and all the way through.  Oh, and just for kicks, I whipped up a Spicy Mayo Dipping Sauce I really think you’re going to like.  It really compliments the pa-pa-POW of the Shrimp!

Also, if you like this Bacon Fried Shrimp recipe, be sure to check out some of my other Prawn recipes like, Thai Red Curry Shrimp, Shrimp Scampi and Firecracker Shrimp, which is a lot like Bang bang shrimp if you’ve ever heard of it.  I have a huge list of other Shrimp recipes if you want to seek them out or look up my Shrimp Recipes playlist on YouTube.  These were just some of the ones I posted with this video.  So be sure to check them out.

I Love Jalapeno Popper Dip

This Jalapeno Popper Dip is a fun way to kick off any meal.  It’s also great for parties and barbecues.  I mean, who doesn’t love Poppers?  The great thing is you don’t have to fight over who gets the last one.  When you’ve got a dip like this one, the only thing you have to watch for is those sneaky double dippers!

Jalapeno Popper Dip with Chips

If you’ve ever had bacon wrapped Jalapeno Poppers, you know they rock.  So I made sure to add some bacon to this recipe as well.  In the video recipe, I dip with Corn Chips but, truth be told, I honestly think it’s better with a Ritz or House Cracker.  I’ve even seen some people go for the toasted baguette but that’s entirely up to you.  This Jalapeno Popper Dip Rocks either way.  Just be sure to tell your friends where you got this recipe.

Potato Bomb Mini’s

Potato Bomb Mini's

I love these Potato Bomb Mini’s!  If you’ve never had a Potato Bomb before, this is definitely a good place to start.  These are usually made from a full sized Russet Potato and they are great at barbecues.  But these little Mini’s can be served anywhere.  You can make as many as you want for an appetizer, snack or just stack them high on party platter and watch them disappear.  And because they are so simple and easy to make, Instead of listing the amounts of everything below, I’m just going to write what’s in it and you can decide how many you want to make.  Every tater gets cheese, bacon, a little salt or creole seasoning if you want some spice, as well as some olive oil to make it all stick.  Think you can handle that?  Then let’s get started.
