Description

A little sweet, a little savory, a lot addicting. Spread this jam on a biscuit with some goat cheese, greens and a fried egg, and tell me it’s not the best darn egg sandwich you’ve ever had.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Bacon
  • 1  Yellow Onion, Chopped
  • 1-½ pound Tomatoes, Chopped (I Used A Mix Of Cherry And Roma)
  • 2 teaspoons Smoked Paprika
  • ½ teaspoons Red Pepper Flakes
  • ¼ cups Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons White Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Dash Cayenne Pepper

Preparation

Fry bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crispy. Use tongs to remove the bacon from the skillet and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain.

Drain all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease. Add the chopped onion into the skillet, making sure to scrape off any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Cook onion until translucent, 4-6 minutes.

Crumble the bacon and add it back to the skillet along with the remaining ingredients. Stir everything together. Increase the heat to medium high and bring to a gentle boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer mixture for 45-60 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture is thick. Remove from heat.

Serve warm or cool and store in a sealed container in the fridge. You can put this stuff on everything: waffles, biscuits, crackers, egg sandwiches, grilled cheese, mac and cheese, a spoon. The mixture makes about 2 cups and will stay good in the fridge for 2-3 weeks.

OOOhhhh good thing you can’t see the drool…!!
I am sooo going to make this. I’ve made tomato jam since my hubby brought home 100 pounds….YES indeed I said 100# (from a friend ) in 1970 as a surprise with the ” OH I know how much you love to can ” they were both green & red…so I made any and everything…My tomato jam became my oldest sons very favorite. I never thought of using Bacon–such a great idea.
THANK YOU !!
