I loved the piece of employment near frying tons of bacon crispy, but therefore you lot desire me to add together it to a bunch of moisture onions? Why would I exercise that? As usual, I was wrong. Despite losing its crispiness, the intense caramelized bacon flavor, as well as sweet/tart/peppery punch of this “jam,” to a greater extent than than brand upwardly for it.

While I'm officially posting this equally some other Super Bowl snack idea, its potential uses become agency by the large game. One gustatory modality as well as the hear reels amongst possibilities. While impressive served exactly on a flake or crisp, this materials volition plough a grilled cheese sandwich into something beyond our world…and don’t fifty-fifty instruct me started on the hamburger applications.

This takes some fourth dimension to make, as well as in that place is expert-level stirring involved, but what a small-scale cost when you lot reckon the in conclusion results. Whether you lot exercise this for your Super Bowl party, or other festive occasion, I promise you lot hand this amazing bacon jam a assay soon. Enjoy!
