DIFFICULTY
Medium
  • 1 sleeve or more Club crackers
  • 1 lb. Farmer John® Classic Bacon
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  1. Preheat oven to 250o F
  2. Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.
  3. Place a cooling rack on top of cookie sheet and spray the rack with cooking spray.
  4. Cut the bacon in half.
  5. Lay the crackers flat in rows on the cooling rack.
  6. Place 1 tsp cheese and/or brown sugar on each cracker.
  7. Carefully wrap 1/2 slice of bacon around each cheese- or sugar-covered cracker. (Be careful not to let the cheese or sugar fall off.)
  8. (If using thicker-cut bacon like I did, stick a toothpick through the bacon on the top side of the cracker just to hold it together. If using thin bacon, I don’t think this would be necessary. I loved the pepper-flavored bacon and could not find thin-cut pepper bacon. The pepper bacon added just the right touch of heat.)
  9. Place the bacon-wrapped crackers on the rack over the cookie sheet in the oven and bake
  10. Bake at 250o F for 2 hours.
  11. If needed, broil the crackers for just 1-2 minutes at the very end to crisp and caramelize the bacon. Watch closely or the sugar will burn quickly.
  12. Remove from oven and cool long enough to eat.
