Bacon+Club Crackers+Parmesan=SCORE!

A Gameday Style reader, Tricia, recently presented a question..

"what is a good tailgating recipe I can make with bacon?"

Right away, I thought of the classic bacon and club cracker appetizer, of which The Pioneer Woman has perfected in "Holiday Bacon Appetizers".   I think it helped Tricia, a busy mama of 4, that the recipe has only 3 delicious ingredients.  
Bacon.  Club Crackers.  Parmesan. 

Tricia went about her business, preparing these beauties for her tailgate celebrating the Missouri Tigers, and taking some great photos of her project.

This is probably not nearly enough for your tailgate.
I would guess 25 pans would do the trick. haha
Tricia said hers were gone in a flash.


Tricia's kitchen smelled divine right about now.


Here is the recipe...I think we can change the name to Tailgate Bacon Appetizers.

Holiday Tailgate Bacon Appetizers

Ingredients

  • 1 package Club Crackers
  • 1 pound Thin Sliced Bacon (or More Depending On Number Of Crackers)
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Optional Alternative: Brown Sugar Instead Of Parmesan Cheese

Instructions

Lay crackers (as many as you want) face up on a cookie sheet.
Scoop about 1 teaspoon of grated Parmesan cheese onto each cracker. Cut your package of bacon in half (or cut pieces individually) and carefully, so the cheese doesn’t fall off, wrap each cheese covered cracker in one half piece of bacon, completely covering the cracker. It should fit snugly around the cracker.
Place the bacon wrapped crackers onto a baking sheet that has a rack on it.
Place in a 250-degree oven for about 2 hours.
