Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

This recipe is really great for parties. It’s a mild combination of sweet shrimp and smoked slightly salty bacon. The thin Sweet & Tangy marinade is a nice compliment.

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp


  1. Soak toothpicks in water while you are prepping.
  2. Partially cook bacon until no longer raw. It should still be flexible enough to be wrapped around the shrimp.
  3. Remove bacon from pan while warm.
  4. Cut bacon in half to create 2 wide, short strips.
  5. Wrap a strip of bacon around each shrimp and attach soaked toothpick to hold bacon in place.
  6. Preheat the grill on medium.
  7. Pour sauce into deep bowl that is wide enough to dunk the shrimp. I like to use a glass two cup measuring cup. Seems to be just the right size.
  8. Dunk each shrimp in sauce and place on the grill.
  9. Cook 5 minutes.
  10. Dunk again and flip to cook the other side.
  11. Repeat the process until the shrimp is cooked and the bacon and sauce are a nice caramelized color.

This recipe is also great with our award winning Sweet & Spicy sauce.

Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos

This is much more fun (and sinful) than low cal ranch dipping sauce with raw peppers. It’s perfect for meals on the grill or tantalizing appetizer. It takes a bit more time but so worth it!


  • 8 whole jalapeno peppers (or mild mini bells)
  • 8 strips uncooked bacon, thin
  • ¼ cup Sauce Goddess Sticky Sweet or Sweet & Spicy sauce
  • 8 x ½ inch pieces of Monterey Jack or other good melting cheese
  • 16 toothpicks

  1. Soak the toothpicks in water so they won’t burn on the grill.
    Prepare Peppers
  1. Half cut lid of pepper by carefully slicing across halfway thru the pepper at the top just below the stem.
  2. Cut a side slit by carefully slicing down the length of the pepper 2/3 of the way down.
  3. "Manage the Heat:" Some of the seeds and ribs have to be removed to make room for the cheese but not all of them. If you want it good 'n spicy you can leave some in. If you use the milder mini peppers no seeds need to be removed.
  4. To remove seeds and rib open the pepper gently by pressing the end toward the stem. Using a small paring knife carefully cut the ribs where they meet the side of the pepper. Use the knife and pull at them. They should come out with slight resistance.
    Put It All Together
  1. Now that the pepper has some space, place one slice of cheese inside.
  2. Wrap uncooked bacon around pepper taking care to place the largest end of the bacon over the top slit and roll the bacon around to the tip then back to the top.
  3. Use 2 toothpicks to seal the pepper closed and hold the cheese inside while it melts by pushing them completely through in an X configuration.
  4. Grill over low/medium heat until the bacon is cooked.
  5. Baste with Sauce Goddess BBQ sauce of choice and continue cooking for 5 minutes.
  6. Put a little extra BBQ sauce in a bowl if you want some dipping sauce.

Sweet BBQ Peanut Butter Dip

This is a delicious option to an ordinary peanut satay sauce. It’s thicker and can be used a dip or a spread.

Sweet BBQ Peanut Butter Dip


  1. Place peanut butter in the microwave for no more than 30 seconds so it's barely thinned out.
  2. Add sauce and stir to combine.
  3. Use as a dip for celery sticks. If you add a bit more Sweet & Tangy sauce it can be used in place of satay sauce for grilled chicken kabobs.

Sassy Saucy WRAP It Up Buffet Bar

This recipe is designed for that perfect Super Bowl Football Party. All the prep can be done ahead of time and then just set it out and let your guests assemble their very own wrap. These are small size but when they are full, they will fill you up for sure. Lay out all the following ingredients on big cutting board or platter. Give your guests place to assemble.


  • 10-12 " flour tortillas or wraps (for gluten free, use rice flour tortillas found in any store's gluten free section or large iceberg lettuce leaves)
  • whipped cheesy spread (see recipe)
  • rotisserie chicken (sliced in chunks)
  • pastrami slices
  • salami slices
  • dill pickles
  • sliced black olives
  • lettuce
  • bacon chutney (see recipe)
  • avocado
  • sliced tomatoes or sun dried tomatoes
  • spicy mustard dip (see recipe)

  1. Make cheesy spread, bacon chutney and mustard dip ahead of time and store in fridge.
  2. Can cut up all other ingredients and store in fridge.
  3. Can heat tortillas if you prefer but not required.
  4. Put everything out in a buffet layout for people to make their own wraps.

This recipe is mostly prep. Your guests will create the wrap themselves.

Suggest your guests start by slathering the cheesy spread on half the tortilla. Place chicken on the half without the cheese, then add toppings laying things like salami or pastrami slices on the cheesy side. Start by rolling the chicken side because the cheese spread helps "glue" the wrap together and keep the contents from falling out.
