I have bacon jam

Shane Greenwood Dec 24, 2008 03:01 PM

What would you make with it? I have some ideas but would love to hear your suggestions.

This bacon jam is from Seattle.

    Maybe use it to top pasta tossed with roasted butternut? Or mixed with braised heavy greens?

        Pour over softened cream cheese, sprinkle with scallions, and scoop up with crackers.

          I will put peanut butter for your PB and BJ

          Or BjLT, ie add lettuce and tomato for sandwich
          Should go well with turkey breast, grilled onion, and cheese on ciabatta

          What is this bacon jam exactly? Brand, taste, ingredients, etc.? Just very intrigued.

            Thanks for the suggestions (all sound good). The BjLT is kind of what we did tonight. Made a panini with the bacon jam, arugula, manchego, dario sausage, and a splash of balsamic. Was fantastic. I think bacon jam would work on just about any sandwich. I think I'll try the PBBJ, that'll be an adventure for the taste buds.

              It should go well on english muffins or biscuits with scrambled eggs as well :)

                That sounds amazing, Shane.

                Try it on a burger. How about on pancakes or french toast w/ a fried dippy egg on top. Let the egg yolk runneth over and dive in mouth first. Mm, mm, good.

              Hah. I don't know, but my husband just served bacon brittle as the finale to our traditional Xmas eve dinner....It was delicious.

                Cheeseburgers with bacon jam sound like pure evil yumminess to me.

                Sauteed green beans tossed with a dollop of bacon jam.

                Homemade corn bread with bacon jam spread on it.

                  use in place of tomato sauce on homemade pizza, and top with spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, roasted garlic and goat cheese (and maybe even some shredded roast chicken).

                    Ooooh, how about gorgonzola in place of the goat cheese and toss on some carmelized onions.

                      thank you! i was having a brain freeze and knew the goat cheese didn't sound quite right. gorgonzola is much better :)

                        put a couple eggs on the pizza three minutes before it's done, then you can squish the dippy eggs on the pizza. mmm

                        i second the peanut butter idea, i love bacon and peanut butter on and english muffin.

                        how about as an element of garlic bread.

                      We added some to barbecued oysters. Just about a 1/4 teaspoon was perfect.

                      dollop some on these babies: http://www.pillsbury.com/Recipes/Show... (instead of goat cheese, use some cheddar or cheddar/jalapeno jack blended with some cream cheese).

                      or use the roll-up technique. http://www.pillsbury.com/Recipes/Show...

                      man. i could gobble some of those!
