Foodie Friday Shrimp Cocktail Appetizer Bites
To cap off about 8 years of Foodie Friday, an easy, all-in-one fast appetizer that will do you proud for any occasion. Enjoy.
Shrimp Cocktail Appetizer Bites (prep. time about 15 minutes. Serves a whole bunch)
1 Bobli bread shell (thin crust)
8 oz. cream cheese softened
1 C. cocktail sauce
8 oz. salad shrimp thawed, well drained, patted dry (it wouldn’t hurt to use a little more shrimp, maybe even another whole 8 oz. package)
Homemade Cocktail Sauce:
1 C. ketchup
3 heaping Tb (or more to taste) grated horseradish
1 tsp. Worchester sauce
½ tsp. mustard powder
Pinch of salt and cracked black pepper
Spread the cream cheese evenly right to the edge of the bread shell. Repeat with the cocktail sauce.
Slice into bite-sized squares with a pizza wheel before evenly distributing the shrimp over the top. Press the shrimp lightly into the cocktail sauce so it isn’t as likely to fall off when your guests take a piece. Serve chilled.
Lasts several days in the refrigerator since the cream cheese acts as a barrier keeping the cocktail sauce from soaking into the bread. You can add a little color by sprinkling some diced parsley or dill over the top.
