Has anyone else seen these strange savory “jams” that are a thing now? I won’t lie, I still think they’re a little strange. Delicious yes, strange, also yes. But I’m a fan! Especially of anything bacon. And since maple bacon is also a wondrous thing, I thought this was a great combination!
I basically just adapted my tomato onion jam (recipe made for the juicy lucy burger) to use bacon instead of tomatoes, and use maple syrup in addition to some water. It’s pretty simple, and was a hit at our New Year’s Eve party! They went on Brunch Burger Bombs, recipe to follow!
As an introduction to the recipes I’ll be sharing for the next few weeks, here was our menu for our New Year’s Eve party:
- Brunch Burger Bombs (with maple bacon jam)
- Bagel Chips & Everything Bagel Dip
- Waffle Bar
Additionally friends brought super yummy Apple Cinnamon French Toast and a delectable egg casserole! We ate soooo good! And then followed it up the following day with a boozy brunch. A good send-off to 2016, if I say so myself!048 - MapleBaconJam
