Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

6 large shrimp
2 ounces Jack cheese, shredded
6 slices thick cut bacon

Peel shrimp, leaving shell on tail segments. De-vein. Partially butterfly shrimp. Form cheese into 6 long, thin rolls. Place 1 roll in open part of each shrimp. Place shrimp on bacon and roll up. Run 1 long bamboo skewer through upper portion of all 6 shrimp and another through lower portion of all 6 shrimp in order to keep shrimp closed and hold bacon in place. Grill until bacon is cooked and shrimp are no longer translucent. Remove from skewers to serve.

Makes 6 appetizers or 1 main dish serving.

Variation:Shrimp may also be deep fried. Skewer as directed, but leave some space between each shrimp. Coat with seasoned cracker crumbs. Deep fry until cooked through.

Serve with cocktail sauce
