  • Dice the uncooked bacon up and cook over medium heat until the fat renders out and the bacon gets some color.
  • Once the bacon has taken on some color, but is not crisp, pour off all but about 2 -3 tablespoons of the bacon fat.
  • Add the onions and the 1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt. Lower heat to med-low and slowly cook the onions until they have reduced in size and darkened in color.
  • Let the onion mix cool and mix the rest of the ingredients together.
  • Chill and stir before serving.

<p>I used to cook professionally, but got out of the business because it is a soul crushing, low paying job. If you want to hate cooking, run a hotel kitchen. Now that I don't have to do it for a paycheck, I cook for my friends and family as much as possible. I enjoy making everything from BBQ to Bur Blanc. I love mixing chocolate with spicy ingredients. I am rather new to baking, (only a few years) but I really love it and try to bake whenever I get a chance. I work offshore in the Gulf and I always sneak down to the galley to make stuff for the guys. I'm a huge fan of Alton Brown. I think the guy is a genius. I have tried so many of his recipes, and they all rock. Since finding this website and having a public place to post my recipes for others to review, I have become more conscientious about writing my kitchen experiments down. I still have yet to get my whole wheat pizza dough to paper, but I promise, it's on it's way. My passion for cooking has increased 10 fold since I left the biz, and I plan to keep putting new recipes here and trying my hand at new stuff. <br /><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket" /></p>
