So you know we made up this recipe from the show FoodCrafters on the Cooking Channel.
- Just over 1 pound Bacon (cut up – about finger width)
- 1 Large Onion (sent through food processor – about 3/8’s pound)
- 1 T Brown Sugar (Packed)
- 1/2 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 T Jen’s Secret Sauce (sorry, can’t tell you what this is… – but it adds sweetness)
Cook bacon in large cast iron pan over medium- to high-heat. Cook till bacon starts to leak bacon juices.
While that is happening, cut up onion in food processor. Cut that puppy up good.
Add to pan with bacon. Cook for approx 2 minutes (until onion is translucent).
Add Brown Sugar, cook about 2 minutes.
Add Balsamic, cook till done. Done being when the grease has separated from the bacon. Cook till you feel it is done for your taste.
Pour off majority of the fat.
Add it all to the food processor and grind it up – not too fine, you want it to have some small chunks in it.
Spread on burger and enjoy!
The first time we made this we took a few bites, then went back and doubled the serving of the bacon jam – so be liberal with it. We also used Havarti cheese instead of Cheddar. Good stuff!
We also felt like we need to add more bacon. So next time we are going to up the amount of bacon and onions and see how that changes things. Will report back here on how that goes.
