Smoked Jalapeno Poppers
Smoked Jalapeno Poppers are an extraordinary treat that never fails to surprise family & guests alike! I love to put them out as an appetizer while we are chatting over a drink before dinner. They never last long and I don’t think I have ever had any left-over!
I mean, seriously, who doesn’t like a dollop of cream cheese now and then? And bacon, who doesn’t love that smoky taste of hickory smoked bacon? Then there is just a little heat from the jalapeno, not overpowering, just the right spicy bite!

There really is nothing like a perfectly grilled oyster! Some people say they are an acquired taste, but I think perhaps this is a recipe that everyone is going to love!
GRILLED BACON WRAPPED SHRIMP
Grilled Bacon Wrapped Shrimp is an easy way to serve up something delicious. The best part is it looks really fancy, but you don’t have to tell them how easy it really is! The recipe is simple, just 3 ingredients.
You can make them in advance and keep them in the refrigerator until you are ready to put them on the grill. What could be easier?
