Recipe by Bergy
This recipe is from the Cloverleaf recipe collection. The recipe calls for canned shrimp so I will put that in the ingredient list but I will use 8 oz fresh. Parmesan cheese works in place of Asiago. The reccipe makes exactly 36 spirals. Place them a bit apart for baking as they do expand. I am freezing 2 dozen - not baked and I will not add the shrimp until I bake them. If you freeze some defrost in fridge for 3 hours and then bake as suggested. If you are baking them right after making them the timing is perfect. We really enjoyed these. Hope you do too. One other suggestion I don't think that the shrimp on top add that much to the appearance I suggest that you add all the shrimp into the spread mixture. Perhaps a small piece of red pepper or pimiento on top for colr.
