Well to say the past week has been crazy would be an under statement!
Last Tuesday my husband was in a car accident, and thankfully he wasn’t harmed. Our car didn’t make out so well though. The car we had for 2 and 1/2 months was totaled, and we’re now going through the process of getting a new car. Holy Paperwork Batman!
My blogging has been a bit slack this week due to the hecticness, but hopefully will be back on track next week! Maybe there will be a post about a new car (fingers crossed).
For this edition of the Recipe Swap hosted by http://tasteofhomecooking.blogspot.com, I was assigned Sparks from the Kitchen blog. I love the Blogger’s Choice Swap since I really get to browse someone else’s blog and find something right up my alley. Well, these little appetizers are amazing!! A delicious shrimp salad on top of a crispy piece of bacon. The only slight modification I made from the original recipe was adding the water cracker. I think it makes it manageable to eat without having to really touch the greasy bacon. I’ll be making these again for sure!
-1 and 1/2 tablespoons mayo
-1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
-1/2 pound peeled and deveined shrimp, diced very fine and shredded
-1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
-4-5 slices bacon, cooked crispy
-A few leaves leafy green lettuce
-1 box water crackers
1. Combine the shredded shrimp, mayo, mustard, and pepper in a small bowl. Cut bacon pieces to about 1 inch long.
2. To assemble, lay a small piece of lettuce on a water cracker, top with a piece of bacon, spoonful of shrimp salad, and small slice of tomato.
