Cheesy and gooey appetizers…

Cheese Smothered Shrimp Skewers
by The Gourmet Farm Girl

20 peeled uncooked Jumbo Shrimp (tails on)
1/2 Tablespoon Farm Girl Seafood Seasoning or Old bay Seasoning
5-6 slices Provolone or Mozzarella cheese
5-6 slices peppered or regular bacon
Fresh Parsley for garnish
5 wooden skewers (six inch size)

Soak wooden skewers in water for 20-30 minutes so they will not burn

Slice the cheese into thin strips and set aside; fry bacon till crisp and drain on paper towels,
 chop into pieces and set aside
Rinse shrimp in cold water and slide 4 shrimp onto the wooden skewers; sprinkle with seasoning
Grill or broil in oven till the shrimp turn orange and are shaped like a C; 10-12 minutes

Remove from heat and immediately lay the slices of cheese over the skewers; sprinkle the bacon pieces over the cheese; cover with foil till the cheese melts (or microwave 20-30 seconds) garnish with fresh chopped parsley and serve.

Serves 5
Double or triple if serving more

These cheese producers have no idea how well they pair up with shrimp!
