    Hi folks. No time to scour the forum for answers this morning. 2 quick questions here regarding ABT's w/ shrimp. Do you precook the shrimp, and if you have nice looking ones, do you leave them whole, or chop them up and mix them with the cheese and other ingredients? Thanks.

    Personally I don't precook them and I chop them up and add to the cream cheese

    I use raw shrimp!
  4. Seems like they would be like pencil erasers by the time the bacon was done. But I've not tried them in my abt's.

    I use precooked shrimp and do a coarse chop of them, mix with the cream cheese and take it from there.

    Thanks, folks. mrs. fatback bought a frozen bag of those tiny, precooked shrimp, so that pretty much settled "cooked vs. raw" decision. I diced them up pretty finely, mixed with cream cheese, green onion, and seasoning salt. I did another batch with some diced grilled chicken, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, green onions, and seasoning salt. They were both delicious, and a huge hit.

    A couple of thing's I'll do differently next time: If I buy frozen shrimp again, I will give it more time to thaw so I can extract more water from them. Also, I will try Old Bay in lieu of the regular seasoning salt.

    Anyway, having done my first batch of ABT's, I now see that they're pretty hard to screw up. And the aroma of those peppers coming off the BSKD...OH MY GOD!!!

    I promise I will bring it with Qvue one of these days.
