  • 10-12 slices of bacon
  • one sleeve of crushed saltines
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  • Melt butter in a cast iron skillet over low heat.
  • Crush crackers on a plate.In a separate bowl, beat the eggs very well.
  • Then dip bacon slices into the beaten eggs, completely coating on each side
  • .Then roll the bacon slices into the cracker crumbs so that each side is completely covered in crumbs.
  • Put into buttered skillet over low heat and brown each crumb-covered bacon slice on each side.Serve warm.
  • Note: if you like your bacon very crispy, fry the bacon before dipping it in eggs and rolling it in crumbs.If you like your bacon more on the “rare” side, just dip slices in eggs, roll in crumbs and brown.
