Have you enjoyed the spectacular flavor combo of Bacon-Wrapped Crakers?? Try them in the AIR FRYER!! Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Crackers are THE snack-tizer of the 2021 Holiday Season. Ok, I just made that up, but it should be a thing!

Imagine your favorite bacon, wrapped around (like a big meaty hug) Club crackers lightly dusted with grated parmesan and air fried until the bacon is crispy and the cracker is lightly toasted. Yeah that sounds amazing, right?

Air Fryer Appetizers are the way to go!

If you love to make appetizers in your air fryer like we do try these Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Dates! No splattering oil, just easy salty-sweet appetizers!

Can I make these in the Air Fryer?

YES, YOU CAN! And they’re so much faster in the air fryer. They don’t take an hour to make. They take roughly 10 minutes at 350°. That means you can make lots of hot fresh batches as your party progresses instead of baking one big batch that then sits around and waits while the bacon gets cold. They’re still good cold, but they’re better when enjoyed hot. Not TOO hot just hot enough to eat without burning your mouth.

What you need

everything you need to make air fryer bacon wrapped crackers!

What if I don’t have the “right” ingredients for these Crackers?

That’s the best part! You can make these with Club Crackers OR any other rectangular cracker that you happen to have. If you don’t HAVE rectangular crackers, Saltines will work JUST fine, you’ll need to stretch the bacon a bit but it works. When you stretch it a bit it can shrink during cooking but they mostly stay wrapped. Just something to be aware of.

Air Fryer Bacon wrapped crackers are a snacking favorite!

If you don’t have grated parmesan leave it off. They are EQUALLY tasty without the cheese. And no one will miss it.

Do I need thick or thin bacon for these?? I used thick because it’s what we buy but ANY bacon will work. If you use thin bacon you may only need to cook them for 8 minutes. Thick takes roughly 10 minutes to cook.
