Advent Day 24: Bacon Bites

Do you need one last simple bite for your Holiday festivities? This nibbler would do nicely. Three or four basic ingredients, short prep and bake time, and very attractive, these Bacon Bites are a hit with every bacon lover. Do try to relax and enjoy your friends and family this time of year. To do so, you must- plan ahead, keep it simple, and search Big Red Kitchen for all your desired recipes.

Bacon Bites
12 pieces bacon, not thick cut
24 buttery crackers
fresh ground black pepper
grated Parmesan cheese, optional

Cut bacon strips in half and wrap around each cracker. Place on wire rack over a foil-lined jellyroll pan with sides and bake in 300 degree oven for 25 minutes or until bacon is crisp. In the last 10 minutes of baking, and if you would like, you may sprinkle a bit of grated Parmesan cheese over each Bacon Bite, then continue baking. Serve warm or at room temperature. Store in refrigerator if you dare have any left. Makes 24 pieces.

Make a memorable Christmas Eve. The festivities begin when the first star shines in the evening sky.

    Has anyone tried these? Do the crackers get soggy?

      The crackers did not get soggy for me, I cooked until bacon was crispy.

    Was just wondering how you secure the bacon? Do you use toothpicks?

      I place the seam on the bottom and they hold themselves together without the picks. Enjoy!
