Bacon Jam

Saw a blog about Bacon Jam and it sounded so good I just had to make it. Has anyone ever made it? I have it on the stove right now and it smells amazing. My DH thinks I am crazy, though.
What I was wondering is what are your favorite uses for it? I was thinking of trying it on some grilled cheese today.

  1. Sounds interesting, I'd also love to hear some uses for this!

    1. I love it on eggs, sandwiches, stirred into sour cream for a tasty dip, grilled cheese, mac and cheese, etc. The version I make is quite savory, though - if yours is sweeter, you might try it on french toast, pancakes, etc.

        I make bacon gravy, similar to sausage gravy, but I haven't made bacon jam. Sounds interesting.

        1. A bit of a late query to this question but I've just bought a joint of gammon and wondered if I could subtitute this (in slivers, grilled or even smoked) for the bacon - any thoughts??

            It turns out that you CAN use gammon. And very tasty it was too :)
