Stuffed Cheese Puffs / #SundaySupper

Today for Sunday Supper we are celebrating foods that you will want to serve at an Award Show Party! So we all brought out our fancy foods because living fancy is fun and tasty!
These Stuffed Cheese Puffs are full of wonderful flavor and are easy to make. You can make the cheese puffs a couple days ahead of time, and the filling can be made the day before you plan to serve them. Put everything together the day of the party!



Stuffed Cheese Puffs
(makes 25-30 puffs)
(recipe at end of page)

Cheese Puffs
1 cup Water
1/2 cup Butter
3/4 teaspoon Dried Basil, crushed
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Salt
1/8 teaspoon Ground Red Pepper
1 cup Flour
4 Eggs
1/2 cup shredded Gruyere Cheese

Filling
8 ounces Brie Cheese, cut rind off
8 ounces Cream Cheese, softened
1 1/2 ounces Pecans, chopped
2 ounces Yellow Onion, diced
1 raw large Shrimp per cheese puff

Shrimp
1-2 teaspoons Butter
1 teaspoon Minced Garlic
Black Pepper

Sauce
2 ounce Cream Cheese
4 teaspoons Lemon Juice
4 teaspoons Orange Juice



Use a medium saucepan and combine the water and butter. Using high heat, add the basil, garlic salt and red pepper. 
Bring to a boil. Add flour all at once and stir until the flour comes together in a ball. The ball needs to be firm, so it won't fall apart. Remove from heat and cool for 5 minutes. 
Add eggs, one at a time, beating egg until it is completely incorporated and smooth. 
Stir in cheese.
Using a 1 teaspoon scoop, scoop the dough onto a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until they have a golden color. Let puffs sit in oven for 10 minutes after turning it off. Remove from oven and cool completely. These can be made  a day or two ahead of time. 
Clean, peel and devein shrimp. Saute shrimp in butter, minced garlic and black pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
Drain butter from pan and turn the heat up. Flip the shrimp over as they cook and get crisp on both sides.
Mix together the brie, cream cheese, pecans and onion. 
Take each shrimp and cut off the top part. The top will go on the Stuffed Cheese Puffs. You will need 1 top of shrimp for each cheese puff. Chop up the rest of the piece into small pieces and set aside. Add the small cut pieces to the cheese, pecan and onion mix and stir together.
Cut off the very top of each cheese puff. Remove bread inside of puff and discard. Place filling in cream puff. Add top part of shrimp to each puff.
Mix together the cream cheese, lemon juice and orange juice.
Drizzle sauce over each cheese puff, and enjoy!

Southwestern Shrimp Spring Rolls / #SundaySupper

These Southwestern Shrimp Spring Rolls are loaded with flavor and quickly gobbled up at parties! Do you ever host parties with appetizers? I love all appetizers, and I love a party that serves only appetizers! It could be the fact that it doesn't feel like I am eating a lot when I indulge in appetizers, or it might be that I love trying new flavors, and apps are a great way to do that. From nuts to dim sum, there is always something you will love at an appetizer party!

  Southwestern Shrimp Spring Rolls
(printable recipe at end of post) 
( makes 12-15)
1 pound Shrimp (20-25 ct)
1/4 cup White Rice
1/4 cup Salsa
1/4 cup Orange Peppers
1/4 cup Red Peppers
1/3 of a Serrano Pepper
1 Green Onion
1 cup cooked Pinto Beans
2 tablespoon Yellow Onion, chopped small
2-3 teaspoons Chipotle Seasoning
Egg Roll Wrappers
Monterey Jack Cheese 
Oil for frying
Avocado
2 tablespoons Salsa
1 tablespoon Sour Cream
1-2 teaspoon Garlic Salt
1 teaspoon Lemon Juice 

 Peel and devein the shrimp. Rinse shrimp. Chop in to small bite size pieces.
Cook the rice. Add salsa to the rice and mix together.
Place the rice and salsa into a medium frying pan. Chop the yellow and orange peppers, serrano pepper and green onion. Place them in  the pan. Drain the pinto beans, reserving the juice. Add 2 tablespoons of the juice, the yellow onion, chipotle seasoning and shrimp. Cook for 2-3 minutes until shrimp is done.

 To wrap the mix in a egg roll wrapper:
1. Place the egg roll wrapper in a diagonal direction, place cheese in the middle of the wrapper. 
2. Add shrimp mix to top of cheese.
3. Add more cheese to the top of the mix.
4. Use a paint brush, that is only used for cooking, to spread a thin line of water around the edges of the wrapper.
5. Pull the left and right sides of the wrapper to the center of the wrapper.
6. Bring up the bottom of the wrapper and tuck it over the filling. 
7. Roll the egg roll up towards the top and secure the tip of the egg roll wrapper on the egg roll.
8. Continue to fill all egg rolls. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Fry the egg rolls in a pan filled half way with oil. Bring oil to 325 degrees. Fry until brown. Drain on paper towels.
Make guacamole by mashing the avocado pulp, and mixing the salsa, sour cream, garlic salt and lemon juice.  Cut egg rolls diagonally and serve. Enjoy!

Grilled Peaches and Shrimp Shish Kabobs / #SundaySupper

These Grilled Peaches and Shrimp Shish Kabobs are the perfect summer #SundaySupper! Fresh grilled peaches are the star of the show, but everything is fresh including the grilled shrimp and the lime drizzle to round it out. With everything but the rice cooked on the grill, make the rice in the microwave and your kitchen stays cool and comfortable. This meal grills up easily and quick. You're gonna love it!

Grilled Peaches and Shrimp Shish Kabobs

(printable recipe)
 Makes 8 skewers

2 cups of Jasmine Rice
Teriyaki Sauce
16 Raw Shrimp
4 Fresh Peaches
1 Fresh Lime



 Cook Jasmine rice.
Rinse shrimp. Devein the top and the underside of the shrimp. Many people don't worry about cleaning the underside of the shrimp, but I like to clean both sides. I am very picky about it, and even if the shrimp comes cleaned on the top side, I clean it again if needed. You don't need a special tool to clean the shrimp. I use a paring knife and it works great.
Cut peaches in half, take out the pit, and cut each half into quarters. Leave the skin on, which makes it much easier to grill. 
Put kabobs together. I used 2 peach quarters and 2 shrimp on each skewer. Also, leave a little space between the shrimp and the peaches as you build your kabobs. Squeeze fresh lime juice over the raw shrimp.
Place skewers on the grill. Set the peaches so one edge is on the grates of the grill. Make sure the shrimp are flat and directly on the grill also. Grill for 3 minutes. Move the shish kabobs so that the other side of the quartered peach is now on the grill. Flip the shrimp over. Grill for 3 more minutes. If more time is needed, continue flipping, but for only a minute of two at a time. 
Add some teriyaki sauce to the rice, and place the peach and shrimp kabobs on top of the rice.




Enjoy!

Sensational Shrimp Scampi

Are you a shrimp lover?
 Me too!
 Do you like yours boiled, grilled, sauteed, or fried?
Me too!
The beauty of shrimp is that it is so versatile.
 It can be used as an appetizer, a soup or salad,
a side dish, or an entree, and there are just so many ways to prepare it.
So a few days ago I decided to go scampi style and it was incredible!
I received some packs of spices from Healthy Solutions Spice Blends to try out, and the
Shrimp Scampi blend had a recipe on the back that turned out to be a definite winner!

Creamy Stuffed Mushrooms

These stuffed mushrooms are delicious. They are the perfect appetizer. You can keep them hot on the stove, or warm in the oven until you are ready to serve. They look and taste fancy, but they are really easy to make.

Creamy Stuffed Mushrooms
1/2 pound Button Mushroom (about 7)
3 oz Cream Cheese softened
2 tablespoons Chopped Onions
3 Pieces of Shrimp
1/2 cup Heaping Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 stalk Green Onion
 Peel the shrimp.
Cut out the back vein.
You don't have to do this. I just prefer to.

Get the shrimp cooking in a pan with about 2 teaspoons
of butter. Cook it on medium high until pink, and a
little crispy.
While the shrimp is cooking, rinse the mushrooms,
and remove the stems.
Let the shrimp continue to cook.
Dry the mushrooms.
When your shrimp are cooked, let them cool.
While the shrimp are cooling, melt about 2 tablespoons
of butter in a pan, and start the mushrooms cooking
on medium.
Put a cover on the pan.
While the mushrooms are cooking, chop the shrimp
into bite size pieces.
Combine the cream cheese, onion, shrimp,
and cheddar cheese. Mix thoroughly.
Check your mushrooms, and flip them over. They
should look brown like this.
Cover the pan again.
Open the pan and check the mushroom. Flip them over.
They should look like this. Cover with a pan again,
but only for a few minutes.
This is not a very good picture, but the mushroom should
fill up with water. When they do, dump it into the pan.
Fill the mushrooms with the stuffing.
Cover the pan for a few minutes, until the stuffing
becomes warm to the touch.
Chop up some of the green onion. Start at the nice part
of the green end.
Sprinkle the tops with green onion pieces.

Enjoy!

Thanks for joining me!

make our
Blue Cheese Caesar Salad!
