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!
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.
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!
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??????
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……………!
