Over the holidays I made these little guys for a party I hosted and I am happy to say that not one was left on the plate. The recipe came from Ree Drummond’s Pioneer Woman show but I changed it up just a bit by not using an entire slice of bacon for each cracker but instead cut it to cover one side of the cracker.

I’ve covered the magic of roasting bacon and how the fat renders out beautifully leaving you with a perfect bite. The brown sugar and bacon fat creates a caramel type effect. It all absorbs into the cracker and leaves you with something between a sweet, salty, crunchy, chewy and spicy bite.

An easy and great appetizer for any party.

Ingredients:
Butter Crackers (I used Kebler’s Town House )
Good thick bacon
Brown Sugar
Sriracha or cayenne

Directions:
1. Cut your bacon to cover your cracker. There will be slight shrinkage. ( I was in the pool!!!) Top the bacon that is atop the cracker with a dusting of brown sugar and a little Sriracha or cayenne. Cayenne is powerful so be careful if you are not used to using it.

2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Place your crackers on a wire rack atop of baking sheet. This is necessary to prevent burning the bottom of the cracker. Cook for 40-55mins until bacon is crispy but not burned. Keep an eye these after 30mins. Every oven is different.
