GPS Holiday Recipes ~ Bacon Crisp

2016-christmas-party-karen-charles

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

Yield:  24 bacon crisps  *  Level:  Easy

 

Ingredients: 

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

 

Directions:

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!)

Quotes

1. “Luck is believing you’re lucky.” — Tennessee Williams

2. “Being Irish is very much a part of who I am. I take it everywhere with me.” — Colin Farrell

3. “That’s what the holidays are for — for one person to tell the stories and another to dispute them. Isn’t that the Irish way?” — Lara Flynn Boyle

5. “Every St. Patrick’s Day every Irishman goes out to find another Irishman to make a speech to.” — Shane Leslie

Sayings

6. In heaven there is no beer. That’s why we drink it here!

7. May the luck of the Irish be with you!

8. There are only two kinds of people in the world, the Irish and those who wish they were.

12. You’ve got to do your own growing, no matter how tall your father was.

13. Irish diplomacy is the ability to tell a man to go to hell so that he looks forward to making the trip.

15. May the saddest day of your future be no worse than the happiest day of your past.

16. I complained that I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet.

17. Life is like a cup of tea; it’s all in how you make it!

Blessings

18. May you live as long as you want, and never want as long as you live.

19. An old Irish recipe for longevity: Leave the table hungry. Leave the bed sleepy. Leave the bar thirsty.

20. May God bless and keep in good health your enemies’ enemies.

21. If God sends you down a stony path, may he give you strong shoes.

22. May the Good Lord take a liking to you … but not too soon!

23. Always remember to forget the friends that proved untrue. But never forget to remember those that have stuck by you.

24. May the blessings of each day be the blessings you need most.

25. May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow, and may trouble avoid you wherever you go.

Toasts

26. “Here’s to a long life and a merry one. A quick death and an easy one/ A pretty girl and an honest one/ A cold beer — and another one!”

27. “When money’s tight and hard to get, and your horse is also ran, when all you have is a heap of debt, a pint of plain is your only man.”

28. “When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. So, let’s all get drunk, and go to heaven!”

29. “May your home always be too small to hold your friends. Here’s to me, and here’s to you. And here’s to love and laughter. I’ll be true as long as you. And not one moment after.”
