This hors d'Oeuvre is relatively easy to produce, and makes a great way to keep your guests happy while waiting for the main event.

And with only six ingredients, it's a snap to put together.

Actually, I’m make a bunch of these up for one of my clients, and I’ll probably save a few for my July 4th party coming up this week.

How to Make Crab on Crackers Hors d'Oeuvres with a Twist

Step-by-Step

  1. Gather all your ingredients
  2. Sauté the bacon until crisp, but not too crisp
  3. Remove from pan and allow to drain and cool on some paper towels
  4. Chef's Note: Reserve the bacon grease for another use (I’m planning on sautéing a couple of chicken breasts with it… but that’s another recipe).
  5. Chop the bacon into small pieces and reserve.
  6. Add the mayo, lemon juice, salt & pepper (to taste), and the cayenne pepper to a bowl, and mix thoroughly.
  7. Carefully fold in the crab until fully incorporated.
  8. Place a heaping teaspoon of the crab mixture on a cracker, and add a few pieces of chopped bacon.
  9. Cover with a piece of the cheese, and place in a broiler and broil until the cheese bubbles and begins to brown.
  10. Serve with a lemon or lime wedge. Enjoy.
  11. Keep the faith and keep cooking.
