Another Pioneer Woman recipe. These little bites have been an cocktail party staple for years according to her cookbook. I had never heard of them nor tried them. As always, I tend to prefer the savory over the sweet. Next time I wouldn't put as much sugar in the sweet bites, but that's just me. :) I used Gruyere instead of Parmesan (just because I had it on hand).
36 club style crackers
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 pound bacon (not thick sliced)
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
Lay the crackers on a rack set over a rimmed baking sheet.
Place a tablespoon of cheese on half of the crackers.
Add a tablespoon of brown sugar on the other half.
Slice the bacon in half.
Wrap each cracker with a half piece of bacon tucking the end of the piece underneath the cracker.
Bake the crackers for 2 hours. The bacon will cook slowly and start to wrap tightly around the cracker and the excess grease will drip off.
Serve them on a platter...you can keep them separate or pile them all up together!
