This was adapted from the Company's Coming Appetizers Cookbook that my step daughter bought me for Christmas. These are amazingly delicious. So simple and yet so good! According to one of my first taste testers, Jim, if they get a bit burnt that is good too. He felt that the blackened bottom "made them". I tend to agree with him too!
- 24 soda crackers (saltines)
- 12 slices bacon, cut in half crosswise
- Wrap each cracker with bacon.
- Arrange on ungreased baking sheet with sides, putting overlapping side down.
- Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven for 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown. (I go for more of a darker brown.).
- Serve hot.
Made these a while back.... Got a similar recipe from the pioneer woman website... Wish i would have put them on a rack... They were really greasy but mmmmm they disappeared like no other... Everyone loves bacon.. you could wrap cardboard and bacon and it would be amazing. MMMM oh and i used premium saltines.
Made these with the addition of garlic powder and cayenne pepper to taste. Very good!
I made this for the second 2006 Pick A Chef Contest. I have given this 4 stars since I had a problem with this in just a small way. I think when this is made, it should be put on a rack of some sort to drain the grease away from the crackers. They were VERY VERY good it is just that I am extremely, well Anal about grease. I do not like grease and I try to remove what ever amount I can from foods. I believe this would be a 6 star with the grease being able to drip away from the cracker as it is being baked. With that being said I would encourage everyone to try this, it is a wonderful party apetizer and my neighbor LOVED them!!!!
