Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

I can promise you, this will be one of the easiest snacks you will ever create.  But this snack, even though extremely simple, is packed with some amazing, succulent flavors.  This entire snack, including the side sauce, is five ingredients.  That’s right, five ingredients.  It is also very quick to prepare, so if you are looking for something quick and simple that will wow your guests, this is for you.

As I have said before, I love football.  But football for me, needs to be paired with some good snacks, and of course, some good beer.  One thing I have noticed that makes a good glass of beer even more mouthwatering, is frosting the glass first.  My Dad started doing it over the summer and the results are amazing.  There are different ways to do this, but I suggest purchasing a mug that has the frosting crystals built in.  It makes all the difference.

Now, back to the food.  Choosing the correct bacon can make a huge difference in this meal.  Different bacon puts off different flavors.  I personally go for an original flavor, but if you are looking for more flavor, by all means, go for the applewood smoke.

The sauce that is used is one my Dad has been making for years.  Its basically a cocktail sauce, but with added mayo.  It settles down the spicy flavor of the horseradish, but still brings a yummy pairing to any fried or baked meal.  

Making sure you have an easy way to read your recipes in the kitchen is important.  I cannot even tell you how many times I have been reading a cookbook and I just could not seem to keep the book open.  That is why I switched to a Kindle Fire and I have never looked back.  It keeps the recipe up the entire time and you do not have to worry about flipping through hundreds of papers looking for the recipe you are currently making.  Huge time and stress saver.

This recipe is great when you just seem to run out of time before your guests come over.  With a 10 minute prep time, you can pretty much make it during a commercial break!  Try this recipe during your next football game watch party, I promise you, they will be gone faster than you made them!
