Bacon Crackers

Makes about 30 crackers
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 1 package butter crackers (like Townhouse or Club crackers, either rectangular or oval in shape)
  • 8-10 slices of bacon
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper


  • Heat the oven to 350°F/175°C.

  • Align crackers on a wire rack set into a lined baking sheet. (Leave a little space in between the crackers for the bacon, as it will hang over the edges of the crackers.)

  • Slice the bacon into thirds or fourths (depending on the length and shape of your crackers). Place a piece of cut bacon lengthwise on each cracker.
  • Sprinkle a generous amount of brown sugar on top of the bacon-topped crackers (about 1 heaping teaspoon per cracker). Then lightly sprinkle with cayenne and black pepper.
  • Bake 15-20 minutes or until brown sugar begins to melt and bacon becomes crisp. Allow crackers to cool on wire rack before eating.
