Easy Bacon Crackers
I like to keep things simple when I’m preparing appetizers for guests. Whether it’s a holiday party or a big game day get together, you need LOTS of food for LOTS of people. Having a bunch of different options is awesome, but putting it all together isn’t always so fun…but these little bacon crackers are super easy to make!
The idea is so simple but SO good. Spend a few minutes preparing them, then you can just set them in the oven until they’re done. No hassle here!
How to Make Bacon Wrapped Crackers
Like I said before, these bacon wrapped crackers are EASY. You’ve only got 4 ingredients to deal with: crackers, bacon, brown sugar, and parmesan cheese. They’re easy to assemble, then you just let them back to perfection. Yum!
How to make bacon crackers:
- Preheat oven, wrap baking sheet in aluminium foil, and place a cooling rack on top.
- Cut strips of bacon in half, then lay the crackers in rows.
- Place a teaspoon of parmesan cheese and brow sugar on each cracker, then carefully wrap each one in a strip of bacon. (If you’re using thicker bacon strips, use a toothpick to secure it)
- Put the crackers on the rack (over the baking sheet), and bake them for 2 hours at 250°F.
They’ll be nice and crispy when you take them out (you can broil them for a couple of minutes to really crisp them up).
How do you reheat bacon crackers?
If you have any of these leftover…well, you probably won’t because they’re really delicious and so easy to eat. BUT, if you do have extras, or if you make a couple batches at once, they are easy to save. After cooking, let them cool and then throw them all in a freezer-safe bag. Freeze them for up to a month.
To reheat them: remove them from the freezer and let them thaw in the bag. Then lay them out on a baking sheet and reheat for about 15-20 minutes at 250°F. The oven does a nice job of crisping up the crackers and bacon, even after being frozen!

I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy this recipe, Lori!
is it ok to wrap with bacon 8 hours before baking, and leave in fridge?
Should be fine!
What’s the best way to store these? Like if I cook one day & want to eat the next? Heat them up again?
You can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in a 350°F oven for about 5 minutes!
I just put brown sugar and the tiniest hit of cayenne. So good!
So glad you enjoyed them, Beth!
Need for a tailgate so want to make night before a 3 hour drive. So wondering if they get soggy if in the fridge to table?
These may not travel that well.
Do you put both parm and sugar on each cracker?
Nope! Just one for each cracker!
Brown sugar AND Parmesan both in each cracker. The picture looks like either but not both.
Brown sugar OR parmesan on each cracker!
Recipe says and or
You can absolutely put both if you’d like!
I put both on there and they came out absolutely amazing. I was in a hurry and must’ve missed the OR part!
Bacon wrapped crackers are Awesome!
Thanks Sandy! I’m glad you enjoy them!
“Place a teaspoon of parmesan cheese and brow sugar on each…”
This is #3 in the instructions. Please correct it to read ‘brown sugar’ not ‘brow sugar’. Thank you.
do they need to be served warm or can they be made in advance and served later with no oven?
You can serve them later on!
