Karen’s Killer Fixin’s #Appetizers: Hors d’oeuvres from Karen’s Kitchen ~ SHRIMP PUFFS

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe from my own kitchen or a guest author favorite. It could be a cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes the eye and fancy…which today is SHRIMP PUFFS !

I haven’t made this recipe in ages, thanks to COVID and my lack of a social life these past few years. But I love this recipe for BYO parties. They are always delicious and a welcome change from what many usually bring. I like to bring the fun stuff! LOL With the move to SC and my social life in a dead halt, I’m going to have to pull this one out to make for my family. We all love shrimp so much it will be a nice addition to any seafood night…or any night, as a matter of fact. 

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
