Needless to say, sometimes something super simple can be absolutely delicious, especially when it has bacon. This is the case with these bacon wrapped crackers. They don’t take much time, are simple to do, and are truly a crowd pleaser. They are perfect for a holiday or tailgate party and can be served warm or at room temperature. If they weren’t so decadent, we’d make them for a weekend afternoon snack while we’re watching sports, but these aren’t your everyday type of snack food. While you can probably make these with almost any type of cracker, we’ve found that rectangular crackers work the best. And don’t choose a saltine cracker, you need one with some buttery flavor to it, after all, you won’t find this in any diet books. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
- 36 Buttery Crackers – Rectangular (such as Town House)
- 12 Slices of Bacon (not thick sliced)
- 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese – finely grated
Cut the bacon strips into thirds, which should result in 36 slices of bacon approximately 3 to 4 inches in length. Wrap each cracker around the narrow side with a slice of bacon, being sure to overlap the edges where the strips meet. Place the bacon wrapped crackers, with the side where the bacon edges meet down, onto a baking sheet with a rack or parchment paper. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees. Cook the bacon wrapped crackers for 12 to 15 minutes or until the bacon is crispy. Immediately upon removing the crackers from the oven, sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Serve warm or at room temperature.
