Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.
Place a cooling rack on top and spray the rack with cooking spray.
Cut the bacon in half.
Lay the crackers flat in rows on the cooling rack.
Place 1 t. cheese and/or brown sugar on each cracker.
Carefully wrap 1/2 slice of bacon around each cheese or sugar-covered cracker. (Be careful not to let the cheese or sugar fall off.)
(If using thicker-cut bacon like I did, stick a toothpick through the bacon on the top side of the cracker just to hold it together. If using thin bacon, I don't think this would be necessary. I loved the pepper-flavored bacon and could not find thin-cut pepper bacon. The pepper bacon added just the right touch of heat.)
Place the bacon-wrapped crackers on the rack over the cookie sheet.
Place the cookie sheet with the crackers in the oven.
Bake at 250 degrees for 2 hours.
If needed, broil the crackers for just 1-2 minutes at the very end to crisp and caramelize the bacon. Watch closely or the sugar will burn quickly.
Take out of the oven and cool long enough to eat.
These crackers freeze beautifully. Cool completely, then place in a freezer bag. When ready to eat, take out of the freezer and let thaw in the bag. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the bacon is hot and sizzling.
