Georgia Bulldogs Football: 5 Tailgating Recipes to Try This Weekend

5 of 6

Bacon Cheddar Crackers

Bacon Cheddar Crackers


2 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp Maple Bacon Sea Salt (optional – available from Epicure Selections)

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

1 cup butter, cold

2 cups shredded, aged cheddar cheese

10 strips bacon, cooked, crumbled

1/4 cup milk



Preheat oven to 375. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, Maple Bacon sea salt (optional), cayenne pepper.

Using 2 knives or a pastry cutter, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cheese and bacon. Mix in milk to form dough. Using a small cookie scoop, place balls of dough about an inch apart. Using the bottom of a glass, dipped in flour, OR the tines of a fork – squish the ball so it is flat. It should be fairly thin but not too thin. Bake at 375 for about 16 minutes. I baked for 8 minutes, rotated cookie sheet, and then another 8 minutes. The edges and top will be a little bit brown. Remove from oven and let cool on wire rack.

And lastly, a new favorite of mine that I concocted for the Georgia v. Auburn game when it was a nice 37 degrees.
