Sweet Bacon Crackers!

How's that title for an expletive? I love it, don't you!?! I plan on using that phrase from here on out. Scared out of my gourd? Sweet Bacon Crackers! Exasperated by the mess in the girls' room? Sweet Bacon Crackers! Amazed by the fact that Timmy remembered to empty the dish drainer without me asking him to do so? Sweet Bacon Crackers!!

Okay, we're moving on...

I said I wouldn't turn this blog into a recipe blog. AND I WON'T. But Tim forwarded a recipe to me that I knew FRN would like. And if you like bacon as much as FRN does, you might also enjoy the recipe. It looks simple, but tasty. (Okay, to be honest, it doesn't look tasty to me. But I agree with Tim that the kids would like it.)


36 butter crackers (Keebler Club, Townhouse, or other sort)
12 slices of bacon, cut into thirds (see how math is involved here?)
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

How to make:

1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F, and place tin foil onto two cookie sheets.
2. Place crackers on the foil-lined cookie sheets in a single layer. Top each cracker with a piece of bacon. Spoon about a teaspoon of brown sugar on top of the bacon. (Reading this now, I'd use less sugar. Much less.)
3. Bake snacks in the preheated oven until the bacon is browned about 45 minutes. Be sure to drain on paper towels before serving.

All day today, instead of Holy Sh@#! I said, Sweet Bacon Crackers! I hope it catches on.

And T, I am with you. Maybe without the sugar?

Sugar and Bacon make an awesome combo. New place in Ann Arbor has a Candied Bacon Sandwich that is to die for...especially if you are diabetic
