Cracker Snacker

"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!"

  1. 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.
  2. Made these with the addition of garlic powder and cayenne pepper to taste. Very good!
  3. 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!!!!
  4. Gotta put this at the top of my "Who'd a ever thunk it?" list. My only ptoblem now is that, because DH loves this so much, I now can't keep bacon or saltines in the house LOL! Thanks for the great post!! Oh yes, by the way - we like them a little blackened, too!!
  5. So simple and so good. I only cooked mine for 10 minutes, so the bacon was cooked but still slightly soft. Very good. I tried adding a piece of cheddar to half of them before wrapping with bacon...I like cheese with everything, and cheese and bacon seemed like a classic combo. But don't bother. You can't really taste the cheese.
