Oscar Night Winner
Oscar Night WinnerFebruary 24, 2012
Whether you’re hosting a viewing party for the Oscars, attending one, or just looking for something good to munch on this weekend, nothing beats Martha Foose’s bacon crackers as a simple snack. They’re unfussy, impossible to mess up, and they go with everything (though, like all leading actors, they can't help but stand out). One of our editors tops hers with pimento cheese (click here for a fantastic pimento cheese recipe) for next-level flavor, but they’re delicious all on their own–just bacon and crackers. Either way, we’re pretty sure Abilene and Minnie would approve.

Yield: Serves 6
3/4 pound (about 16 slices) thinly sliced bacon
42 Rectangular butter crackers (such as Club or Captain’s or Waverly)
Heat the oven to 250°F. Slice the bacon slices into thirds crosswise. Wrap each cracker with a piece of bacon, overlapping as little as possible. Place the wrapped crackers 1/2 inch apart on a wire rack set over a rimmed baking sheet or broiler pan. Bake 1 1/2 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.
