Hello From Castle Baconia’s Kitchen!
Greetings visitors to my kitchen…………..I’ve given the Castle Chef the day off again just so I can spend time with you passing on some of my favorite baconized recipes. I’m continuing the trend of EASY PEASY RECIPES today with one that’s almost TOO easy. However, don’t let the fact it’s easy lead you to believe it’s not good. Because it’s kind of like CANDY and who doesn’t like that?!
Bacon Wrapped Crackers – a fab snack!
1 pkg. bacon – thick cut or regular cut – doesn’t matter.
Crackers of your choice – Keebler or Ritz – any buttery cracker will do. Usually this recipe makes one whole “sleeve” of crackers AT LEAST.
Parmesan cheese (package of shredded parmesan is way better than using the shakeable parmesan in a can)
Brown sugar – depends on how much you put on each cracker but you don’t want to OVERLOAD them!
- Preheat oven to 250F. Put sheet of aluminum foil on your baking sheet and if you have a “cooling rack” put that on top of the foil so the crackers sit “up” a bit.
- Cut strips of bacon in half, then lay the crackers in rows
- Place a teaspoon of parmesan cheese and brown 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 (on top of the baking sheet), and bake them for 2 hours at 250°F.
See what I mean? Easy? It’s actually beyond easy. Now let me say this – I tried this recipe both ways………brown sugar on TOP of the whole thing assembled and brown sugar UNDER the bacon and both are delicious. I preferred the brown sugar on top myself. Also, some people think parmesan cheese isn’t necessary in this recipe and I agree. But it IS tasty with the sweetness of the sugar and the saltiness of the bacon. You can experiment yourself!!!
Two Thumbs Up!
