Martha Hall Foose’s Bacon Crackers

Serves 6

A snack from the Mississippi Delta

Don't let the simplicity of this recipe fool you.  

These little snackies are delish!


    • 3/4 pound (about 16 slices) thinly sliced bacon

    • 42 rectangular butter crackers (such as Club or Captain's or Waverly)


  1. Heat the oven to 250°F.

  2. Slice the bacon slices into thirds crosswise. Wrap each cracker with a piece of bacon, overlapping as little as possible. Place the wrapped crackers ½ inch apart on a wire rack set over a rimmed baking sheet or broiler pan. Bake 1½ hours or until the bacon constricts the center of each cracker and becomes crisp. Remove the pan from the oven and allow the crackers to cool on the rack before eating.

Recipe from Martha Hall Foose’s cookbook, A Southerly Course.
