Bacon what, you say? Yeah, bacon jam. You’ve never had anything like it.
Visit http://www.notquitenigella.com/2009/10/08/bacon-jam-your-wildest-dreams-come-true/ for this fabulous recipe.
I followed the recipe faithfully, adding about a tablespoon of Tabasco to my taste. When it came to the “cook for 2 1/2 hours” part, I plopped the mixture into the crock pot so I didn’t have to tend to it so much.
So far we’ve had bacon jam on toast and Triscuits, in a tuna sandwich, with avocado, mixed into scrambled eggs, as a topper on meatloaf, dolloped on a burger and a baked potato, and if the whole truth be told, right off a spoon when no one is looking.
