Bacon Appetizer Sweet & Savory

A delicious sweet and savory bacon appetizer recipe that is adapted from Pioneer Woman. This is both an oven baked recipe and I added a version to bake in the Air Fryer.




  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spray the wire racks with non-stick cooking spray and place wire racks on the parchment lined pan.
  3. Place 1 teaspoon of brown sugar on top of each cracker.
  4. Wrap 1/2 slice of bacon around the sugar topped cracker and place on the wire rack.
  5. Do this with all the crackers and bake for approximately 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until the bacon is just crisp. (Mine baked in about 1 hr. 20 min.)
  6. Remove from oven to cool and serve immediately or you can freeze them and serve when needed. Heat the frozen crackers just until warm to serve.


  1. Cut a piece of aluminum foil to fit in the air fryer basket according to manufacturer’s directions. Usually the foil should be a quarter inch narrower than the fryer basket so that the air circulates while cooking.
  2. Prepare the ingredients the same way as for oven baking, then place on aluminum foil that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.
  3. Place the prepared aluminum foil with the prepared crackers into the air fryer basket.
  4. Bake at 320 degrees for 6 minutes. Open the basket and rearrange the crackers so they are evenly spaced and continue to bake at 6 minute intervals. Repeat the process and they’re done when the bacon is crispy. Mine baked in 15 minutes total.
