These are, seriously, the easiest appetizers ever, and SOOOOO delicious. I was a skeptic because I'm not a huge fan of meat, in particular bacon. I know, I know....scary. But....with the brown sugar sweetness, this is just the way I like my bacon...with carbs. You can make these trays up in advance and pop them into the oven through a party, or while you are home alone and nobody can see. The best part is they literally make a million.
All you need is...
bacon (get the thin/cheaper kind, I know....wow?), club crackers, brown sugar, and cayenne pepper.
The original recipe used a wire rack (like a cookie cooling rack). I have one of those. I have no idea where it is currently living, so.....I used a mini muffin pan.
I lined up my crackers and cut my strips of bacon into sixths (just long enough to cover the cracker).
I thin mounded brown sugar on top of the bacon (this helps keep it from curling, and gives it a sweet taste). Sprinkle a teeny tiny bit of cayenne on each one (unless you are brave, don't over do that).
Bake at 350 for about 13 minutes. Remove, cool. Eat. Repeat.
