Something From Pinterest . . .

I Actually Made Something I Pinned On Pinterest

If you're like me you find tons of great ideas on Pinterest!
Every time I find something I like I pin it to one of my boards with intentions of  "possibly" making it. 
I did make some tasty goodies back in the fall.
   (read about it here)
 I also found inspiration for decorating with red & white for Christmas.
 (read about it here)

I decided to make this appetizer for New Years Day.

Bacon/club cracker appetizers - These are so simple and from Pioneer Woman

It is a recipe from The Pioneer Woman.  Everything I've made from one of her recipes has been so good.
I wasn't sure about this recipe but I threw caution to the wind & gave it a whirl.
Baking time at 250 degrees is 2 hours.  At the end of the 1st hour it smelled delicious!
I added 20 additional minutes at the end of the 2 hours because I wanted to make sure the bacon was crisp.
After they cooled for a few minutes I gave it a taste test . . . YUM!
Hubby ate one & gave it his approval.  

Thanks Ree Drummond for sharing a great recipe!

1 package Club Crackers
1 pound Thin Sliced Bacon (or More Depending On Number Of Crackers)
Grated Parmesan Cheese
Optional Alternative: Brown Sugar Instead Of Parmesan Cheese
Preparation Instructions
Lay crackers (as many as you want) face up on a cookie sheet.
Scoop about 1 teaspoon of grated Parmesan cheese onto each cracker. Cut your package of bacon in half (or cut pieces individually) and carefully, so the cheese doesn’t fall off, wrap each cheese covered cracker in one half piece of bacon, completely covering the cracker. It should fit snugly around the cracker.
Place the bacon wrapped crackers onto a baking sheet that has a rack on it.
Place in a 250-degree oven for about 2 hours. 

 Thanks Pinterest for inspiring me to try new things!

If it has bacon in it, it just has to be good:) Trying new things is such fun. Good for you.

I say good for you too! That looks delish! I made a 'metal washer' necklace from Pinterest, but am having trouble learning to tie those 'sliding knots' on cord I like so much.

I love Pinterst and find so many neat ideas on there. Every so often I "challenge myself" to myself to use what I've pinned instead of just dreaming about it!
I probably use the recipes the most -- but workin' on my other boards too!
BTW - the appetizers look delish!

That looks so delicious! I have also pinned a few of recipes but haven't tried them yet. I do make a lot of the recipes I find on Pinterest though-it's a great source of Pinspiration!

Best wishes,

Deborah Anne said...

I'd pinned that recipe too. Glad to hear it IS a good one. Probably make it for the next girls' nite in! :)

I haven't gotten into pinning. It is fun. I can see that. I can well imagine pinning much and not getting a chance to actually use it. I think I have enough of an addiction to blogging. LOL! But then again, it is a New Year.
