Bacon wrapped appetizers are the absolute best. Remember our Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers? How can you go wrong with bacon? These bacon crackers sound a little bizarre, but I promise you that they are fabulous.

We originally got this recipe from the Pioneer Woman’s A Year of Holidays cookbook. RecipeBoy Brooks shared bacon crackers here on the website back in 2015. We’re sharing it again today with new photos since Super Bowl is coming up!

Bake them for about 2 hours. The bacon will cook slowly and start to wrap around the crackers. The bacon grease will drip off onto the baking sheet underneath.

It was not a great game… it was an amazing, historic, fantastic game. I think I have watched it at least 6 times on the NFL Network but the next time, I will have to make some of these yummy crackers to enjoy while viewing. Thanks for sharing!
