Skillet Bacon Jam is a bacon spread that is used as a condiment. It is made from niman ranch bacon that is rendered down along with onions, balsamic, and other spices. It is USDA approved.
I had never heard of such a thing and wasn’t sure at first that I wanted to try it. The idea stuck in my head though and I kept wondering what that would taste like. So I finally applied to review it. They accepted and sent me a sample. One thing I can definitely say about the sample is–it was too small!
I’m not really sure exactly why but this stuff is addictive. I wanted more of it. And I actually ate some it just by itself. Which it NOT what they recommend.
They say it is used on skillet burgers, baked potatoes, grilled cheese sandwiches, and in omelets up in Seattle. This would be a great substitute for bacon on a BLT too. I only put some on toast and crackers. Mainly because I didn’t have the makings for a BLT and didn’t want to drive 15 miles to get them. Yes I’m lazy :p
It has a spicy sweet taste to it. You can taste the bacon but it is bacon with a definite tang. As I said it is addictive. I wanted more.
