I learned how to make a version of this in a home economics class in middle school, back in 1989!
I found a yellow binder that was MY cookbook. This consisted of binder paper, funny pictures of food I drew and my cute bubbly juvenile handwriting.
This recipe is homage to all the educators out there taking the time to influence and form the minds of prominent little people who will one day lead us all.
Besides my family being an influence with cooking & baking in my life, this class exposed me to being experimental and try recipes from other cultures.
I put my own twist on Edna’s Glorified Graham’s. She used Graham Crackers, I used salted crackers. Plus I added a other items to it. I am almost positive that we used margarine, even though the recipe calls for butter.
Edna’s Glorified Graham’s
INGREDIENTS & TOOLS
- 1.5 Sticks butter
- 1 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
- Generous Pinch of coarse Sea Salt
- 3 Bacon Strips, cooked & crumbled
- 1 Sleeve Saltine Crackers or 6 Matzo Crackers
- Parchment Paper
- Jelly Roll or 1/2 Sheet Sized Pan
- Silicone Spatula
Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Line pan with parchment paper and arrange crackers on sheet to accommodate entire pan. Set aside.
In a heavy saucepan, add sugar, butter and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring with whisk. Once the mixture boils, turn off heat. Pour in vanilla and whisk well.
Carefully pour the brown sugar mixture over the crackers. Spread with silicone spatula in order to coat all crackers. Crumble bacon over crackers and place in oven for 7 minutes.
Remove and cool. Break it up in chunks; place in an airtight container for up to a week if you can keep it that long…
You can make many variations of this!
Take a cup of milk chocolate chips and scatter over warm brown sugar and let sit for about 1-2 minutes; spread with offset spatula and cool. Break it up and enjoy!
To me, this honestly works best with fresh, crunchy Matzo crackers. It is also easier to spread brown sugar mixture onto crackers.
If you don’t have a commercial sheet pan or half size pan, consider investing in one! They are super cheap and are a kitchen essential. Check this one out on Amazon.com.
