These irresistible party snacks are easy to put together with pantry staples. Cooking them slowly allows the bacon flavor to soak into the[ crackers. A brush of jelly at the end helps cut through the richness.]

Yield:
32 crackers
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 sleeve (about 32) oval buttery crackers
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 pound thinly sliced bacon, each strip halved crosswise
  • 2 tablespoons red currant or red pepper jelly
  • Cayenne pepper, for sprinkling, optional
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Lay the crackers face up on a clean work surface and scoop 1/2 teaspoon Parmesan on each. Wrap each cracker with a piece of the bacon so the seam side is on the bottom and the cracker and cheese are covered as much as possible. Place the crackers seam-side down on a wire rack set over a baking sheet. Bake until the bacon is golden and crisp, about 1 hour.

  • Meanwhile, whisk together the jelly with 1 teaspoon water in a small bowl and microwave on high until warmed through and loose, about 30 seconds; add more water if necessary.

  • When the crackers are done, brush each with the jelly, sprinkle with the cayenne if using and serve immediately.
