Bacon Jam is one of those kinda-weird but totally awesome condiments that you have to experience to believe. It’s amazing on top of a juicy grass-fed burger.
What is Bacon Jam?
I know this sounds bizarre: smoky bacon simmered down with sweet maple syrup, tangy apple cider vinegar, dark coffee and of all things, chocolate to create a thick jam-like texture. This recipe is modified from one I found on allisoneats.com, but I really wanted to cut down on the amount of sugar and add some cinnamon and nutmeg to give the jam another dimension of flavor.
What To Use Bacon Jam On
The result is pretty awesome on just about everything and goes extremely well on top of a nice, juicy grass-fed burger. It takes a bit of time due to the simmering but other than that is pretty simple to make.
You could also create this and leave out the chocolate which would make the bacon jam pair nicely with some sunny side up eggs.
