    Made these in advance, might not have been a good idea- crackers got soft. How do you store these? I’m going to try to freshen them up by placing on pan in oven at 400 for a few minutes…fingers crossed.

    • They are definitely better when made fresh. I like the idea of freshening them in the oven. That should be a good fix!

  2. I made two pans of this. My bacon curled up and the crackers got very dark. I lowered the temp to 350 and the crackers didn’t over-brown, but the bacon didn’t really crisp… but it was still tasty;.
