Bacon Crack is an old recipe that I remember eating in the 70’s and 80’s and I just recently remembered how amazing these recipes are. Why on earth I forgot about them I will never know, but trust me they are something you want to try if you haven’t already. 

bowls of bacon appetizers

There are several different recipes for these, both sweet and savory. I’m going to share a recipe for both types. They are so easy and can be put together quickly.

Here’s what you need:

Bacon Crack Ingredients


bacon, crackers, cheese


  • club crackers
  • bacon
  • parmesan cheese


  • club crackers
  • bacon
  • brown sugar
  • maple syrup

Bacon Crack

  • Heat oven to 250 degrees.
  • Lay parchment paper or foil on a cookie sheet.
  • Spread out the crackers on the cookie sheet.
  • Top each with about a tsp. of either cheese or brown sugar.

  • Cut your bacon strips in half and wrap a piece around each cracker covering the cheese or brown sugar.

  • For the brown sugar bacon crack brush on maple sugar over the top.

  • Place in the oven and bake for one and half to two hours until bacon is crisp. (The cheese appetizers will take longer.)

There’s not much to them, but they sure are good. What kinds of party food do you enjoy?

Here’s another delicious appetizer.

There are so many things I could say but I will just start with the basics. Mother to 4. Grandmother to 11 (Yes, 11. All under the age of 9.) I am a former Army wife and we spent 15 years traveling around the world. It was such a thrill to have seen so many places and meeting lifetime friends. I spent many years working in the craft industry and love getting together with friends and creating. I have a lifelong love of thrift shops, antiques, and yard sales.


  1. You had me at bacon.

  2. I am so intigued by this! A favorite in our house is bacon and brown sugar lil’ smokies, but I can see the crunch of the cracker being a winner, too!

  3. I made one of these years ago but totally forgot about it!

  4. This vest-style harness comes total with twin attachment points to help quickly safe and also manage.
