Bacon Wrapped Crackers
By: Belinda Stradley

Eric and I tried these for the first time at a church function and we were immediately hooked! The combination is very unexpectantly delicious!! And so, so easy to make:)

club crackers
1 pack of regular bacon
brown sugar (light or dark is fine)

Preheat the oven to 275. Take your pack of bacon and cut it in half. Take a club cracker and wrap one piece around the cracker, completely covering the cracker. Add the brown sugar on top. Repeat this until you run out of bacon. Cook in the oven on 275 for 45 minutes.

Pineapple Casserole
My MaMa Thomason use to make this.

This is one of my favorites! The pineapple and cheese combination tastes terrific!

* 1 cup sugar
* 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
* 2 cups grated sharp cheddar
* 2 (20-ounce) cans pineapple chunks, drained, and 6 tablespoons pineapple juice reserved
* 1 cup cracker crumbs (recommended: Ritz)
* 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, melted, plus extra for greasing pan


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease a medium-size casserole dish with butter.

In a large bowl, stir together the sugar and flour. Gradually stir in the cheese. Add the drained pineapple chunks, and stir until ingredients are well combined. Pour the mixture into the prepared casserole dish.

In another medium bowl, combine the cracker crumbs, melted butter, and reserved pineapple juice, stirring with a rubber spatula until evenly blended. Spread crumb mixture on top of pineapple mixture. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
