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.

Cheese Bombers with Bacon

Cheese BombersWhat’s are Cheese Bombers?

Cheese Bombers are the BOMB!  No pun intended.  The only thing that would make these better is Jalapeno Peppers.  It would take Poppers to whole new level.  I found a Photo of these on a page I “liked” on facebook, called Food Porn.  They only publish food pics that make you drool.  And when I saw a picture of these, I just had to try it.  The recipe is quite simple and I think you’re going to love it just as much as I do.

Cheese Bombers Ingredients:

  • Grands flaky Biscuits cut into fours
  • Mozzarella Cheese Squares 3/4 to 1 inch thick
  • Bacon slices cut in half
  • Oil for Frying
