Frequently Asked Questions:

            Which type of cracker is best, should I use the square shape or the round shape?

Honestly guys, I highly recommend that you use the ones that are rectangular in shape. This gives enough space to allow for a full experience of flavors in each bite.

            Can I use Turkey Bacon?

You could most certainly swap out Pork bacon and use Turkey or even a Vegan brand of bacon. The flavors will change slightly, but not enough to alter the flavor completely.

            How should these be stored, if made ahead of time?

To store these delightful treats, place them into an airtight container, and then into the refrigerator. They can be stored there for up to 2 or 3 days.

What do you need to make Bacon Cracker Appetizer

            30 rectangular shaped crackers

            10 slices Bacon, cut into pieces

            ⅛ tsp black pepper

            1 pinch of Red Pepper Chili flakes, (optional)

How to make Bacon Cracker Appetizer

FIRST STEP:

Preheat the oven to 350* and line a baking tray with parchment paper

Place a wire rack over the parchment paper

Line the crackers on the wire rack, ensuring space between each

Place a piece of cut bacon on the top of each cracker

SECOND STEP:

Sprinkle each piece of bacon with brown sugar, covering the entire piece of bacon

If desired, sprinkle each prepared bacon cracker with a sprinkle of the red pepper, remember this is optional

THIRD STEP:

Place the baking tray into the prepared oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Longer if necessary to melt the brown sugar and ensure the bacon has become crispy

Remove from the oven when desired crispiness has been reached.

FOURTHSTEP:

Place the baking tray to the side to cool to room temperature

Place on a serving tray and garnish as wished. ( I slice oranges and place a small slice throughout the plate)

Enjoy!
