Brown Sugar Bacon Crackers

  • Author: Mix and Match Mama
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: About 30 crackers 1x


An easy little snack or appetizer that has just the right amount of salty, sweet and spicy!


  • 1 package butter crackers (like Townhouse or Club crackers, either rectangular or oval in shape)
  • 810 slices of uncooked bacon
  • 1 cup brown sugar or so
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper


  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy clean up, set aside.
  3. Align crackers on a wire rack set into a lined baking sheet leaving a little space in between the crackers for the bacon.
  4. Slice the bacon into thirds or fourths (depending on the length and shape of your crackers). Place a piece of cut bacon lengthwise on each cracker.
  5. Sprinkle a generous amount of brown sugar on top of the bacon-topped crackers. Then lightly sprinkle with cayenne and black pepper.
  6. Bake 15-20 minutes or until brown sugar begins to melt and bacon becomes crisp. Allow crackers to cool on wire rack before eating.


These are so easy to assemble and bake!  I do think they hold up better served immediately after baking.  The next day, they’re still delicious but the cracker is a little soggy.  For an easy gluten-free swap, just change out your crackers to a buttery g-free variety.
