These Glazed Bacon Crackers are so easy to make, only 4 ingredients and one of those is bacon so yeah, they are good! If you are looking for that one appetizer to impress your guests, stop looking because this is it!
What would a party be without a bacon appetizer! Seriously, bacon makes everything better!
I use thick sliced bacon but thin will work too. You will cut your bacon into small pieces so they will fit onto the cracker which means you only need about a half pound of bacon for a sheet pan full of crackers. Keep in mind the bacon will shrink while cooking so if it is hanging off the edge of the cracker a little bit that will be okay.
Any cracker will do, even saltines but I use this brand of Pretzel crackers because of the flavor and that covering of salt which enhances the bite.
Oven temps vary depending on your stove. About 15-20 minutes in a 350° oven will crisp the bacon and melt the brown sugar just enough to create a sweet little glaze. They may appear slightly burned because of the toasted brown sugar. They are perfectly sweet and salty with a cracker crunch! Delicious party food!
- 1 box of your favorite crackers (Buttery flavors are best)
- 1 12 oz. pkg. of bacon
- About ¼ cup light brown sugar
- 2 Tbsp. Smoked Paprika
- Place a cooling rack onto a baking sheet with sides.
- Place the crackers side by side onto the cooling rack.
- Cut each slice of bacon into pieces which will fit on each cracker. (We used thick sliced bacon and were able to get 4 crackers per slice of bacon)
- Sprinkle a generous amount of brown sugar on top of each bacon topped cracker.
- Now sprinkle with the smoked paprika.
- Bake in preheated oven at 350° until done, about 15-20 minutes.
- Serve and enjoy!
