Bakin’ in Baconia

Standard

King Teddy – coming to you from Castle Baconia’s kitchen!

It’s time for our little Saturday get together where I give you an incredibly delightful recipe for an amazingly EASY (most of the time) snack that I’ve managed to find in the blogosphere.    Today’s really is just about the easiest – although slightly strange – recipe involving bacon that I’ve EVER given you!

Oh Monsieur Le King I shall be taking notes – Easy recipes means more time for me to float in the moat here at Castle Baconia!!!

Well this will give you lots of leisure time that’s for sure……………and it will give ME a whole lotta great snacks.

Bacon-Parmesan Cracker Delites

Now this recipe might sound just a little weird – hard to imagine something this simple could be this good but trust me…………. For one thing it uses Club Crackers which always have been one of my Mom’s FAVORITE crackers (next to Ritz maybe!)………and I’m thinking you probably can substitute other similarly shaped crackers for Club – I think the Club is the BEST of the REST.

INGREDIENTS

1 package Club Crackers (this recipe will make 36 appetizers)

1 lb. thin sliced bacon (the thick stuff which is our favorite around here is too thick to use for wrapping!)

Container of Kraft Grated Parmesan OR if you really want to go crazy get the Parmesan/Romano mix!

DIRECTIONS

Lay crackers (as many as you want) face up on a baking rack/cooling rack.

Scoop about 1 teaspoon of grated Parmesan cheese onto each cracker. Cut your package of bacon in half (or cut pieces individually) and carefully, so the cheese doesn’t fall off, wrap each cheese covered cracker in one half piece of bacon, completely covering the cracker. It should fit snugly around the cracker.

Place the bacon wrapped crackers on the rack onto a baking sheet.

Place in a 250-degree oven for about 2 hours.   (yes I know this sounds nuts at such a low temp but it works!   It really does work!)

 

Cool these babies when they get out of the oven but they are delish warm or room temp either way.    It’s just a very seemingly unusual recipe that’s beyond simple but also delightful.   That’s a good combination right??????

Bacon makes me wanna DANCE with “HAPPY” !!

That’s all from Castle Baconia this Saturday.   Hope to see you again next week when I share something else delightfully delicious that has BACON in it……………!

Your Royal Catness, King Teddy

    • Mom says she agrees! She’s always loved Club crackers but never thought about making them into something this yummy as a snack or appetizer – always just plopped cheese on top and she says she was good to go!

    • Doesn’t get much easier than that huh? Kind of a weird recipe with the temps being so low but I think it’s just so all the bacon grease gets properly absorbed into the cracker – makes it that much more YUMMY IN THE TUMMY!

  1. That sounds very tasty. I haven’t heard of Club crackers but always have Ritz in the cupboard. I had to google 250 degrees because my oven goes on gas mark numbers. The equivalent is low which is the next one under gas mark 1. That really is low!! I suppose it is that low otherwise the crackers would be overcooked.

    • Ritz may be more difficult to wrap in bacon than a rectangular cracker like Club but there ARE other similarly shaped crackers out there. I personally love RITZ and always keep them but the truth is, Ritz and Club ALMOST taste the same!!!! I think Club is made by Keebler. It truly is a VERY VERY low temperature and it allows the parmesan to melt just right AND the crackers not to get too overcooked with all that bacon grease in them. It sounds like a WEIRD recipe but it’s actually amazing.

  3. Teddy, these sound oh so super yummy, and Mom has all the ingredients, but unfortunately our bacon is also thick. She’s going to ask Dad to get some thin the next time he goes shopping. Our temp is going up to the 80s for a few days after tomorrow, so we may have to wait until it cools off a bit to make these, but they will be made and nommed. Thanks for another great recipe.

    • Mom thought that maybe even thick bacon (which she also buys!) WOULD work if you “stretch it out” thin. You know what I mean – and it would thin it out enough to wrap nicely around the crackers. Today we will have temps in the upper 50s only but the rest of the week we will have some nice WARM temps like you! YAY YAY YAY!!!!!

      Hugs, Teddy
