It's no wonder Mommie Cooks calls her appetizer recipe an "appetizer delight"! These little puff pastry bites are filled with bacon, cheeses, garlic, green onions and topped with shrimp, making them elegant and oh so delightful!

Submitted to Foodista by Mommie Cooks

4 Slices Bacon
1/2 cup Sour Cream
4 Oz. Cream Cheese
2 Green Onions, Chopped
2 Garlic Cloves, Minced
1/2 teaspoon Red Pepper
5 drops Hot Pepper Sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder
1 Pd Cooked Shrimp
1/2 cup Fontina Cheese, Shredded
1/4 cup Grated Parmesan
1 package Puff Pastry
Dry Parsley for Garnish

Cook up the bacon slices. Cool and chop up.

Chop up 1/2 pound of the cooked shrimp and throw the other half in the fridge to stay cold (you'll use these to top your appetizer at the end).

To a bowl add the bacon, sour cream, cream cheese, green onions, garlic, red pepper, hot pepper sauce, Worcestershire, onion powder, cheeses, and chopped shrimp. Mix well.

Cut the puff pastry into equal squares and press each into a miniature muffin tin to form a bowl shape.

Fill each bowl with a spoonful of the shrimp mixture and sprinkle with parsley.

Place the pasty into an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Serve hot with a shrimp from the remaining 1/2 pound in the fridge placed on top.
