Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 30 minutes

Cook time: 1 hour

Servings: 30


  • ¼ cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 15 slices center-cut bacon, halved lengthwise
  • 30 saltine crackers


Preheat oven to 250˚F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, chili powder, and red pepper.

Wrap 1 bacon slice diagonally across the front of 1 cracker, wrapping straight up the back and diagonally across the front again to create an “X” pattern. Fold any remaining bacon to the back side. Repeat with remaining bacon and remaining crackers. Place on prepared pans. Sprinkle evenly with brown sugar mixture.

Bake until bacon is crispy, 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.
