Gorgonzola Bacon Wrapped Shrimp


  • Baking Sheet
  • Grater


  • 10 bacon strips
  • 20 uncooked medium shrimp, ready to eat
  • Garlic salt
  • 2 finger limes
  • Gorgonzola cheese (Can be left out of the recipe, for those not consuming dairy.)


  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Cut each bacon strip in half down the center, lengthwise.
  3. Sprinkle some garlic salt and the citrus caviar, from the finger limes, onto each piece of shrimp prior to wrapping them in bacon.
  4. Starting from the tail, wrap a piece of bacon around each shrimp toward the head and then back down.
  5. Place shrimp on a foiled baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes or until bacon is crispy.
  6. Grate some Gorgonzola cheese and sprinkle over the shrimp and bake about 5 minutes longer, to melt the cheese slightly. Enjoy!

Gorgonzola Sweet Potato Chips


  • Baking Sheet
  • Brush
  • Grater


  • Sweet potatoes, peeled
  • Garlic salt
  • Onion powder
  • Green chili powder
  • EVOO
  • Gorgonzola cheese (Can be left out of the recipe, for those not consuming dairy. Instead chips could be made with Cinnamon too)


  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Peel and thinly slice sweet potatos. I use my KitchenAid attachment to get really thin slices.
  3. To create seasoning mix, blend onion powder and garlic salt with green chili powder in a 2 to 1 ratio, as needed. Depending on the amount of chips you are making, you may need to make additional mix. Just use two parts onion powder, 2 parts garlic salt to 1 part green chili powder each time.
  4. Brush each side of the chip w evoo lightly and then dip into the seasoning mix. Be sure each side is coated well. Place the chips on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake for about 15 mins and then turn the chips and bake an additional 15 mins more.
  5. Grate some Gorgonzola cheese onto a plate and sprinkle over each chip. I like to move the chips closer together at this point, but still in a single layer. Let bake for additional 5 minutes to melt the cheese.
  6. Remove from oven and plate. You can sprinkle extra bacon slivers and scallions on it for taste. Enjoy!
