    • 12 Original Black Pepper Crackers


    • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
    • Place pancetta in a single layer on a baking sheet
    • Bake pancetta until crisp *this can range from 6-15 minutes dependent on the thickness of the slices and the heat of the oven. We recommend keeping a close eye on them.

    • On our Black Pepper Crackers, place the crispy pancetta, spread the goat cheese, and top with the fig slices and one arugula leaf

    One for the pepper people!

    The world consists of two types of people: those who crave salt and those who adore pepper. If you’re the latter, this is your cracker! Mary’s Gone Crackers has taken their traditional recipe of organic, gluten free, whole grain brown rice, quinoa, flax seeds, and sesame seeds and added a fresh kick of organic black pepper. With Mary’s Gone Crackers® Black Pepper Crackers you can enjoy the rich, nutty flavor of our original cracker and the smoky heat pepper lovers live for.
