What is not to love about the taste of bacon?
As I was flying home on Alaska Air I noticed a grilled cheese sandwich on the menu with bacon jam from Skillet Diner (a local restaurant that started out with just food trucks). Obviously it was on regular bread so I didn’t order it but wondered how it tasted. That same day I saw the Skillet Bacon Jam in the grocery store and read the label. Here is my first try at a recipe but after doing the photo shoot and eating the sandwich afterwards I think that it actually would be better with the maple syrup substitution idea shown.
Or maybe skip the jam and just throw two pieces of bacon on the sandwich and call it good!
yield: 6 tablespoons
4 slices cooked bacon, chopped
¼ teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons brown sugar mixed with 2 tablespoons butter (or try subbing out both brown sugar and butter with 2 tablespoons maple syrup)
¼ teaspoon pepper
salt to taste
Combine all ingredients in a mini food processor until well blended.
Here are a few of the ingredients:
