Lowcountry Meets Americana

These Mini Shrimp BLTs take one of the Lowcountry’s staples and infuses it into an American classic. The saltiness of the bacon is an excellent complement to the smooth, slightly sweet taste of the mayonnaise. And who doesn’t love the bright pop of color granted by the cherry tomato? These appetizers are sure to be a hit at summer gatherings and make a delectable starter to any great menu. We recommend serving them before the BBQ Cornish Game Hens.
