Bacon-Wrapped Saltines
Makes 30
  • ¼ cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 15 slices center-cut bacon, sliced in half lengthwise
  • 30 saltine crackers
  • Yellow mustard, to serve
  1. Preheat oven to 250°. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, chili powder, and red pepper.
  3. Wrap 1 bacon slice diagonally across the front of 1 cracker, wrapping straight up the back and diagonally across the front again to create an X pattern. Fold any remaining bacon to the back side. Repeat process with remaining bacon and crackers. Place on prepared pans. Sprinkle evenly with brown sugar mixture.
