Tangy, sweet Bacon Jam is the ultimate bacon lovers taste treat. This will become your new favorite condiment. This savory spread is perfect for an appetizer with cheese and crackers, or a tasty addition to burgers or sandwiches!
Hold on to your hat, this one will blow your mind!
It’s sweet, salty and smoky! It may just be your new obsession. It is mine!
First of all, let’s talk about this jam. This is not aa typical jam like strawberry or blueberry jam. It’s savory and is crazy good on all kinds of dishes. Try it in quesadillas and sandwiches, on your burger, on a breakfast sandwich or toast or as a topping on dips. There really is an endless possibility for this Bacon Jam.
I had seen a couple of recipes for Bacon Jam in cyberspace. They all sounded interesting, but not what I had in mind for a Bacon Jam.
This recipe has only six ingredients and comes together quickly. It took me about 30 minutes from start to finish.
Get a good quality, thick bacon. I would get just a plain flavor. Maple or black pepper will alter the flavor.
I used white wine vinegar and really can’t promise the same results if you use another flavor.
Tabasco Jalapeno Pepper Jelly is great in this recipe. In stores, it is usually in the ethnic section of the grocery along with the Mexican and Chinese foods (I know, that’s so random!) or it’s with the jams and jellies (where it totally should be!) If you can’t find it you can order it at my Amazon store.

- 8 slices good quality thick cute bacon (about 1/2 pound. I used Wright's)
- 1 cup onion sliced thin
- 1 clove garlic
- 2 tablespoon white wine vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1/3 cup Jalapeno Pepper Jelly
- Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crispy.
- Remove with a slotted spoon to drain. I like to let the bacon drain on paper towels.
- Add the onions to the same pan and saute until tender, about 5 to 6 minutes. Stir often so the onions will cook evenly.
- Add the garlic in with the onions and cook 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from skillet.
- Add the vinegar and deglaze the pan, scraping the bits off the bottom of the pan.
- Reduce heat to low and add the brown sugar and jalapeno pepper jelly to the pan. Simmer until it thickens, about 5 minutes.
- Add onion, garlic and bacon back into the pan and heat through.
- Great servd on toast, as a spread for sandwiches and wraps,
