Awesome savory condiment! Made and then put inside a fried egg sandwich. Yummy. I could eat right out of the jar but I will not to be that bad. Could see this in a grilled cheese, or sub in for sliced bacon in a BLT... The only thing I did differently was after step 3 I put into a crockpot for 3 hours, UNCOVERED, on high just so I could do some other stuff. Thank you LoriMama. DS would love this as he thinks women should wear bacon perfume!? I read that it keeps in fridge for 4 weeks.
I'm not sure there are enough superlatives for this yummy goodness! Tangy and kinda sweet, I'm looking for things to serve this on/with. Maybe with cream cheese, on a toasted bagel? I tried them on some pecan nut thins, smeared with cream cheese and topped with the bacon jam. Daggone, I guess I know what to give everyone for the holidays! Thanks so much for sharing this fabulous recipe, Lori Mama!
I am going to a wine and cheese thing, and plan to make this, pile it onto a disc of Brie cheese, wrap the whole thing in a puff pastry, and throw it in the oven, and then serve it with crackers. :) Because YUM.
This is sinful!! Delicious, decadent and oh so good.
wow, an amazing thing! I was hesitant about the coffee, but it cooked down and had such a rich smokey flavour.. sweet and savory.. thanks for the recipe :)
I did find that when I put it in little jars, the fat separated to the top... i guess it would be good to really drain the bacon and onions first for gift giving jars. I plan to drive the men in my life wild with this ;)
I just made almost this recipe...little more bacon, no hot sauce, but no matter. This stuff is the BOMB when it comes to taste. Bread slathered with jam with poached egg on top... use in sammies, eat out of the jar, oh my. It is super easy to make, and fun to eat :)
If I could give this 10 stars I would! Incredible, salty, sweet, decadent, wicked and sinful! Thanks Lori Mama! This will be a pantry staple from now on!
Thinking to give some of this as gifts, I made 1/2 the recipe and can hardly believe my taste buds. It's wonderful!!!! I've had it on a turkey burger, on crackers, and on a spoon. I also mixed 1/2 Tbls of it into 1/2 lb of ground beef and had the best beef patty ever! Thank you so much. Those who receive this at Christmas are going to go nuts over it!
Simply YUMmmmm. I used Pete's hot sauce instead of Tabasco, but otherwise followed the recipe. I did pour off most of the bacon grease before frying the onions and garlic. My stove goes as low as a crock pot, so I only had to add 1/4 cup water, and that was actually more than it needed. I had to cook it a bit longer to let it evaporate. I ate a bit and put the rest in the freezer which was hard to do. (I wanted to eat it all.) I plan to serve this on toast spread with marscapone for our tree trimming party. I'm sure it will be wonderful. I think mustard would go well with this also, so I may do some toasts with mustard and some with cheese. I'll taste first and decide at the time of spreading.
