When it comes to cooking I am an advocate of simple. Simple ingredients, preparation, cooking technique and service. I like to concentrate on the flavors of the ingredients and don’t make a big fuss changing the inherent goodness with spices and flavors that overwhelm. When it comes to barbeque I’m just not all about rubs and such – I like the flavor of the meat, the smoke and maybe a simple glaze or sauce on-the-side. So when it comes to making an appetizer for a large group I am pretty much gonna find CB’s EZ route to cooking that will make them happy. This appetizer just couldn’t be any more simple. There are two ingredients. One is purchased prepared and the other just needs a little coaxing to celebrate it’s tasty self.
Two ingredients: Saltine crackers & thin strips of bacon
I first enjoyed this delicacy at the Georgia home of Deb & Jack Cory. When Deb served them I told her I’d never heard of it before. She responded in her gracious way: “CB, it’s a Southern thing.”
Deb all’s I can say is it may have been a Southern thing and now it’s a thing that makes my friends go crazy. Welcome to the Cookout! ~ Barry CB Martin
