We've made tons of meals since being back but there a couple that have got to be shared. Actually there are a few. That implies 3, right Mom? :)
Mini Grilled Cheese with Bacon Jam
Bubble bubble toil in trouble. Halloween night was spent testing/tasting out a bacon jam recipe. Josh and I fell in love with Empire State South's bacon jam years ago. Its decadent. Its deep. Its delicious.
It was the first thing that came to mind when I was asked to bring an appetizer to a friends dinner party.
Believe it or not Miss Priss herself -The Martha Stewart- has a bacon jam recipe. Yes, I am just as surprised as you. Seems so...lowly for her hoity toitiness.
Because I functionally am not able to adhere to a recipe 100% this is how I made Bacon Jam:
To pay homage to the amazing mini grilled cheese hors d'oeuvres that we served during cocktail hour at our wedding....we layered our jam between 2 pieces of bread and good white cheese. Indulgent!
Cut into cubes and added more bacon jam- for the true bacon lovers out there
Please. Make this next time you have appetizer duty. Please.
Bacon Jam is my jam.
