Bacon Wrapped Shrimp.... With Home Canned Bacon

I've been using the bacon that I recently canned. So far, I like it.

The canned bacon is not crisp, but either cooking it in a frying pan or zapping it in the microwave for one minute does the trick. It crisps right up!

I butterflied a few shrimp, stuffed them with a slice of pepperjack cheese, wrapped in about 1/2 of a slice of bacon and tossed them into the oven til crisp and the cheese was bubbly.

I liked the way they turned out. The pepperjack added just a bit of a kick and the bacon was nice and crisp! It was a fairly quick snack to make. 
I'm pretty sure that anything wrapped in bacon is going to be tasty though. lol

The weather has been pretty warm here. There's been a few days of single digit temperatures and some snow flurries, but no major moisture. The critters are doing great! One momma hen was determined to hatch an egg, so I let her go ahead, The little one is thriving and seems to have adjusted to life in the coop fairly well. 

Hope everyone had a great Christmas and safe New Year's eve! 
Thanks for stopping by!

Thank you Linda... It's good to see ya!
I used the bacon again tonight for supper. I like how quick it cooks up and I can store it on the shelf.
Hope the storms and cold weather aren't reaching you!

Cold, yes. We've had storms; but praise God the worst has missed us.
God bless!
