It seems this Thanksgiving I was all about the puff pastry for the appetizers. Isn’t it weird how we get stuck on a certain ingredient or type of cooking? This Thanksgiving my focus seemed to be on puff pastry and bacon. More to come regarding the bacon 🙂
1 pkg (5.2 oz) garlic & herb spreadable cheese, softened (I used the little wedges by The Laughing Cow
1 Tbs finely chopped parsley
2 sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
18 fresh jumbo shrimp (peeled & deveined)
1 sheet of Pepperidge Farm puff pastry
Heat oven to 400°F.
Stir cheese, parsley, and bacon in a medium bowl and set aside.
Unfold puff pastry sheet on lightly floured work surface. Cut puff pastry sheet crosswise into 18, ½” wide strips. Spoon at 2 teaspoons cheese mixture onto each strip. Wind 1 pastry shrimp around 1 shrimp, slightly overlapping the pastry. Repeat with remaining pastry strips and shrimp.
Bake 15 minutes or until pastries are golden brown.
Serves 18 (pieces)
Total time: 50 minutes
