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.

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

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. When the crackers are done, brush each with the jelly, sprinkle with the cayenne if using and serve immediately.
