These appetizers are very good and simple to put together. The recipe came from the epicurious forum several years ago. This is staple around the holidays at our house. They also look very pretty.

  4. Meanwhile, combine shrimp with cheese, mayo, breadcrumbs and salt. when circles are cool, put a rounded T of shrimp mixture on each. Sprinkle with a pinch of dill and place under broiler for about 3 minutes.
