Bacon jam. I know it sounds strange, but the combination of smoky, salty and sweet is extremely good. We already know it from here, at home, when we make american pancakes with maple syrup and crispy bacon.
But what do you use it for? Well, there at lots of things that get much better with “the bacon treatment” 😀
- A good piece of bread with a great cheese and bacon jam on the top.
- On a burger, smear one of the pieces of bun with bacon jam and that a bite of heaven.
- Mix into your scrambled eggs for a turbo bacon/eggs dish.
- Put it in your mince meat when you make meat balls or meat loaf.
- Put in on any sandwich where you would otherwise put a slice of bacon.
Ingredients 1 Servings

I am crazy about food, cakes, snacks and everything in between. I love to do tons of experiments to find the best recipe, so that you don’t have to.
