Bill always asks me a couple of weeks into December what I would like for Christmas. Of course, I answer a red Mercedes sports car, a diamond ring and on and on. Actually, he’s on to me though and knows what I really will say and do want, a new cookbook! And he usually comes through with flying colors; except for the year when he bought a cookbook offering 500 recipes for a slow-cooker. I put the slow-cooker in our last yard sale many years before!
Anyway, Bill really delivered with style this last Christmas! He gave me “Uncle Bubba’s
Josie’s Shrimp Yummies
1 sleeve Ritz crackers
3 tablespoons melted butter
3 tablespoons cream sherry
Salt and pepper
12 large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
To make the stuffing, crush the crackers thoroughly and place in a small bowl with the melted butter and sherry. Mix thoroughly, and add salt and pepper to taste. The crackers will soak up the sherry and butter to make a thick paste.
Slice each shrimp down the back to create a pocket. Stuff the shrimp with the cracker mixture. Place in a lightly greased baking pan and bake for 10 minutes, or until the shrimp turn pink.
Yummy good for a Super Bowl party!
