Bacon Cracker Appetizers

 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, club crackers, brown sugar, and cayenne pepper.

Then you....
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.
