My mom always steals the show when she brings these little noshes to an event. During our pre-travel Italy events last year, the crowd gobbled them up, so it was only natural that our newly forming 2011 Travel Group should get the benefit of these tasty morsels.
Word travels fast when a basket of Bacon Squares hits the door. Selfish people might think to keep the news to themselves, but everyone starts raving… and eating these snacks. Before you know it, they’re gone. It’s best, I guess that I didn’t even get ONE last time, because one is really never enough. Sort of like the reason I don’t keep potato chips in the house, once you get started, it’s too hard to stop.
Try these with some bubbly at an appetizer party. The salty, crunchy combo is perfect with cava, prosecco or champagne. You will too form a love-hate relationship with this recipe. A guilty pleasure for sure.
Jackie’s Bacon Squares
- Keebler Club Crackers
- 1 pound sliced bacon (not thick sliced)
- parmesan cheese
Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Cut the sliced bacon into quarters (each slice will now be 4 small slices). Line the baking sheet with crackers and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Place one of the 1/4 slices of bacon on each cracker and again sprinkle with parmesan cheese. One pound of bacon will make 60-68 crackers.
Bake for approximately 2 hours. The bacon and the crackers will be crispy. Mom says “enjoy the compliments”.
Happy New Year!
