“I know. I know. I really need to be careful messing with a good thing. But when it comes to food, I think a good 'messing' can lead to great meals! (This being one!) Po Boys are traditional Louisiana sandwiches, usually with roast beef or some kind of fried seafood. My version of fried seafood for this sandwich is...raw shrimp dipped in Kraft Fresh Take, then oven fried. (You could use precooked shrimp, but I chose the raw shrimp with tails because it was the cheapest option...tails are easy to twist off!) No oily mess, simple dipping. Easy peasy. The traditional sauce for Po Boys is remoulade, but since I didn't have any on hand or all of the ingredients necessary to make one from scratch, I just mixed together equal parts of mayo and Dijon mustard. Again, keeping it simple and easy. We absolutely adored the cheddar-bacon flavors in this sandwich.”

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Dip the raw shrimp into the egg and then into the cheddar-bacon cheese mixture.
  3. Place on a non-stick baking mat, or parchment paper covered cookie sheet. Once all the shrimp are ready to be 'oven-fried', put them in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until cooked through. Cooking time may vary depending on size and thickness of the shrimp. (I used small shrimp.).
  4. In a small bowl mix together the mayo and the mustard.
  5. Assemble sandwiches with the oven-fried shrimp, lettuce, tomato slices and mustard-mayo spread.
  6. Serve Cheddar Bacon Shrimp Po Boys with preferred sides.
