Bacon-Wrapped Cracker Appetizer

Bacon-Wrapped Cracker Appetizer

by sunshine on December 6, 2008

I have seen this recipe many times and have yet to find or come up with a creative name for these!  I’ve hear them called Holiday Bacon Appetizers, Bacon Cheese Crackers, Bacon Crackers, you name it.  Whatever the name (or lack thereof) these things are great!  Another great dish to have during the holidays. Everyone is sure to love them…..whatever you decide to call them!

Bacon-Wrapped Cracker Appetizer

Recipe and picture courtesy: The Pioneer Woman

Printable Version: Bacon-Wrapped Appetizer


  • Club Crackers
  • Thin Sliced Bacon
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese (fresh or canned…I recommend fresh)

(You can also use brown sugar instead of parmesan cheese….I’ve never tried it but heard it is very good)


Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

Lay crackers face up (as many as you want) on cookie sheet.

Scoop about 1 tsp. of grated parmesan cheese on to each cracker.

Cut your package of bacon in half and carefully (so cheese does not fall off), wrap each cracker with a slice of bacon, completely covering the cracker (it should fit snugly around the cracker).

Place the bacon-wrapped crackers on to a baking sheet that has a rack on it.

Place in 250 degree oven for about 2 hours.

I’ve been wanting to try these deadly things! How about “Fat, Fat Bacon-Cracker Fat Wraps” for the name??? 😉 Off to the store for the ingredients! Thanks!

Just tried these last night at a Holiday party…fantastic!! Can't wait to make them! So easy-my new go to appetizer to take to parties!!

I have made these with thin crunchy breadsticks, you wrap the bacon around then dredge them through the permesan. same idea, just a variation to try 🙂

A friend shared this recipe with me and called them Dolly Madison’s. I never asked y. Her recipe also calls for rolling the bacon-wrapped cracker n Parmesan cheese.

My did not take 2 hours, I am afraid they would have burnt. They were perfect at an hour so it's a good idea to check on them around then the first time making them. 🙂

I call anything wrapped in bacon "rumaki", whether it is water chestnuts, liver, etc! We didn't want to wait 2 hours so we did 375 for half an hour and they were great; however, I have never tried them at 200 degrees for 2 hours – maybe they are even better!

I have always heard them called "Bow Ties". My question is how to store them if cooked prior to serving? Anyone have an idea?


Linda February 23, 2013 at 8:58 am

you can freeze them in a sealed baggy…….saw it on The Pioneer Womans' show. I wanted to try them for the Holidays and didn't get the chance…..I'm baking them now……can't wait till they are done………doing the 2 hour version.

These are delicious. I had the ones with brown sugar. I can't wait to make them qwith parmesian cheese.
