Cheese and Bacon Shrimp Puffs Add 2 tablespoons of cooked bacon crumbles to the shrimp mixture and replace the Parmesan cheese with 2 tablespoons of shredded cheddar cheese.

These were quick and delicious. My DH left the room and didn't come back right away and there was none left when he came back. He was disappointed.

Made for the Pick Me Tag Game & to serve today as we hosted Siggi's Mom for afternoon coffee & Easter dinner. I used frozen Icelandic baby shrimp, leek for the green onion & added parsley. I had to cook them longer than stated to get a golden color, but the yield & taste were perfect. They were the 1st thing hands reached for, 1st to be praised & 1st to disappear. I do love easy-fix success stories. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)

Wow! These are divine. I used frozen baby shrimp in place of the canned shrimp. The only other thing I did differently was to divide the mixture between 6 rounds. That worked quite well for our Appy Night. These will definitely be made again. Thanks for sharing!

Oh my, these were delicious! I baked mine at the specified temperature, and they still weren't very brown by 13 minutes. But the bread was stating to toast a little too dark, so I served them as they were which was only slightly browned on the surface. But that didn't seem to matter because they were so good, in fact they're a bit addicting. It's a simple recipe that goes together so quickly too, and they're wonderful. This recipe will remain at the top of my list of favorite appetizers. Thanks, TeresaS.

Wow are these ever fantastic! So easy to make and so delicious. I did add a teaspoon of hot sauce. Got everything all ready early on then put the shrimp mixture on the bread bits just before popping them in the oven. 15 minutes was perfect timing at 375f. The bread bottoms were toasty crisp and the shrimp mixture really did puff. This is a 5 star plus recipe. 18 Feb 2018. Made again enjoyed just as much. 25 Dec 2018 . I keep making this recipe because we love it so much.
