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.

Step-by-Step

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