Bacon Jam Recipe

We had this original bacon jam recipe on our website long before the recipe became famous. I sometimes wonder where celebrity chefs get their inspiration from and the methods they use to claim a recipe and pretend it was their own.


This popular bacon jam recipe is made with slow-cooked bacon, brown sugar, onions and spices, and is a great breakfast spread. The bacon jam also works well with burgers, sandwiches, and baked potatoes. The recipe is so versatile, it can be used to elevate anything you like.


This is the best bacon jam recipe out there. I know it is a brave statement, but we have been told this by so many people. Some are family, others from social media, and many more. Many food bloggers have adopted this bacon jam recipe, but I know for a fact, we were one of the first to have this bacon jam recipe on our website.

Thanks and happy bacon jam cooking.

There should only be one bacon jam recipe, and it should be this one. I do not like the one with coffee or bourbon. The sherry does the trick and the cayenne pepper is a great secret ingredient. 5.00
