Sweet Bacon Crackers are an easy appetizer recipe. Club Crackers are wrapped in bacon sprinkled with brown sugar and baked to perfection. Delicious tailgate or party recipe. Sweet, salty, portable and addictive.
Sweet Bacon Crackers are an idea that has been running around the internet for quite some time.
Lord knows I have looked at a few of them, so it is hard telling which one was the first one I saw.
It is also hard to tell if there was anyone recipe that I have used so I apologize to any other blogger out there who believes this recipe may belong to them.
This can be made any type of cracker that you would like.
I prefer the buttery small rectangles, only because I like the shape that this cracker becomes.
All of the cracker types will shrink somewhat in the general area the bacon is wrapped. A few may even look like bow tie crackers.
The key to keeping your crackers together is to keep the heat high in the oven.
If you cook these too slow, there is more time for the grease to absorb into the crackers and they will be soggy in the middle.
But if you like your pork fat, this might be the way you want to cook them.
Be sure to use a non-stick cooking surface, like non-stick aluminum foil or parchment paper that has an extra layer of protection added by using baking spray.
These may stick if allowed to sit for too long before removing from the baking sheet, even with extra levels of non-stick protection!
Trust me, I have lost many crackers this way. The brown sugar and bacon fat will turn into hard caramel cement.
Make sure you use a baking pan with sides! If you do not use one with sides you might find the bottom of your oven smoking or even a few dancing flames down there.
Yes, this is also from experience.
Bake until the bacon is your preferred level of crisp.
I am not a fan of hard crispy bacon, so yours may require more time in the oven than my recipe calls for. Give it another 3 to 5 minutes for crispier bacon.
Watch these closely, you will go from delicious to burnt in a flash.
I make one small snack size sleeve if I am only serving 2 or 3 as a true snack.
If I am serving a crowd I may use an entire box of crackers and 3 or 4 pounds of bacon.
*For reference, there are about 30 to 36 crackers in a single sleeve.
In an ideal world, you could make 1 sleeve for a crowd when served alongside other snacks. In reality, bacon appetizers tend to go faster than anything else except maybe shrimp.
The amount of bacon used also depends on the thickness of the bacon.
I find that generic bacon tends to be thinner so I can get more crackers out of a package of bacon.
This recipe for sweet bacon crackers represents an amount that is somewhere in between the two extremes, so please adjust up or down according to your own needs.
