GPS Holiday Recipes ~ Bacon Crisp

GPS Holiday Recipes ~ Bacon Crisp

This recipe is courtesy of Paula Deen and submitted by Karen Smith at GPS Corporate.  And it is easy to make!


Total Time:  2 hr 10 min  *  Prep:  10 minutes  Cook:  2 hours

Yield:  24 bacon crisps  *  Level:  Easy



1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan (I use the package kind – works fine)

1 sleeve buttery rectangular crackers (recommended: Waverly Wafers)

1 pound sliced bacon cut in 1/2



Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.

Place 1 teaspoon of the cheese on each cracker and wrap tightly with a strip of bacon. Place the wrapped crackers on a broiler rack on a baking sheet and put the baking sheets on the oven rack. Bake for 2 hours, or until the bacon is done. Do not turn. Drain on paper towels. Serve hot or at room temperature.

Cook’s note: You can also bake at 350 degrees F for 40 minutes if you’re in a hurry! (this works better in my oven and I’m always in a hurry!)

GPS Holiday Recipes ~ Cinnamon Pecan Quick Bread

GPS Holiday Recipes ~ Cinnamon Pecan Quick Bread

Weight Watchers recipe submitted by Rea Parrish at GPS Columbia.


Just sweet enough, this cake is heavenly with a cup of coffee or tea. It’s a healthy alternative to dense breads and cakes.

2 sprays cooking spray
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1 tsp table salt
1 cup pureed winter squash
2 large eggs
2/3 cups unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp chopped pecans, toastedInstructions
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9- x 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, allspice and salt.
3. In a large bowl, combine squash puree, eggs, applesauce, sugar, oil and vanilla extract. Using an electric mixer, beat on medium speed, until well combined, 3 to 5 minutes.
4. Fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients until just combined; pour batter into prepared pan. Smooth into an even layer; sprinkle with pecans. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of bread comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes. Cool; remove from pan and slice into 16 pieces. Yields 1 piece per serving.Notes
You can use any variety of winter squash here (acorn, butternut, delicata, hubbard, etc.) cooked any way you like (steamed, microwaved, roasted, etc.) Or keep frozen, precooked winter squash handy to make this recipe anytime! Winter squash works just like pumpkin in baked goods. Use it in cheesecakes, muffins or loaf cakes. Its slightly sweet flavor and rich color are a natural fit with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
