Most Sundays are pretty easy going around our house. Sometimes we have big Sunday suppers and sometimes we have various snacks throughout the day.
Sunday afternoon I was frying up some bacon because I knew the boys were getting hungry and I fried a little extra. Is there such a thing as extra bacon? Well not really, but I took some of the bacon and mixed it into some cheese crackers. Turns out Bacon Parmesan Crackers are the bomb! Does anyone say that anymore?
These Bacon Parmesan Crackers are ideal for lazy Sunday afternoon snacking but they would also make a wonderful appetizer for your next cocktail party or backyard barbecue. It's bacon and cheese and butter, how could you go wrong?
I ate quite a few of these and then I decided a little bit of sweet with these savory crackers would kick them up a notch. I pulled out some raspberry jam and just put a dab on a cracker. Well, then I really couldn't stop eating them. Orange marmalade would also be fantastic.
Have them with a sip of wine, a nice cold beer on even a Coca-Cola, so so good I tell you.
I do realize that you may be tired of me begging for votes, but there's still time to vote for my Salt Crusted Potato Bites for Munch Madness. I want that crown made of taters. Please and thanks!
