Shrimp Toast

6 slices rye bread
36 med. shrimp, cleaned
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp. minced garlic
6 slices cheese

Place bread on a baking sheet.  In a frying pan melt butter, add garlic and shrimp.  Saute until shrimp is pink.  Place a slice of cheese on each slice of bread.  Top cheese with 6 shrimp.  Drizzle with drippings from frying pan.  Broil in oven until cheese starts to melt. 

Martha:  I made shrimp scampy one night and had leftover.  This is what I came up with so the shrimp wouldn't go to waste.  Boy was it a big hit.  The fortunate food testers that got to try this one all raved over how good it was.  You got the flavor from the rye bread, the sweet taste of the shrimp and of course the delicious blend of butter and garlic.  Oh yeah, the cheese was good too.  If you don't like rye bread, use French, wheat or whatever you do like.  As for the cheese, I used a blend of cheddar and jack.  You can do the same or use whatever cheese you like that will go with shrimp and garlic.
