Ingredients

  • 1 sleeve or more Club Crackers I used Multi-Grain
  • 1 lb. Pepper Bacon thin sliced is best
  • 1 c Dark Brown Sugar my personal favorite
  • 1 c Parmesan Cheese grated other grated cheese would be good, too

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Enjoy!!

Notes

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.
