Bacon Jam aka The Most Beautiful Thing I’ve Ever Seen

There have been many things made out of bacon perhaps none has been so perfectly matched as this.

Bacon Jam

Blogger Not Quite Nigella first heard about the Bacon Jam produced by Skillet Foods and was unable to obtain a jar herself so she became obsessed with very thought of this food. I mean who can blame her? A sweet and spicy jam that could be used on any sort of sandwiches, eggs, toast and a variety of breakfast foods….whats not to love? Well, thankfully her obsession lead to her development of this succulent looking recipe that I hope to try out for myself very soon. Its a fairly simple recipe that combines common pantry items and smoked bacon to make this extraordinary jam…the real trick here is taking the time to slow cook down everything and if youre like me, patience and bacon do not often mix. But in this case, I think the wait would be well worth it!

You can see the whole recipe along with step by step photos here.

Bacon Salt review

Yesterday one of my dear coworkers bestowed upon me 3 bottles of Bacon Salt…Original, Hickory and Peppered. She said she didn’t really ever use it and knowing my love of bacon, thought they would have a better home in my kitchen. I immediately changed my original dinner plan to accommodate my new addition to the spice rack. She did give me one word of advice, “you cant really cook with it or it looses the flavor, like if you are sauteing chicken it wont work but you can top french fries with it after they are cooked.”

Hmmm, this was a little disconcerting but I was still excited to give it a shot. I had a fresh bunch of asparagus in my fridge so I decide to do a steamed asparagus tossed with olive oil and bacon salt then topped with fresh Parmesan cheese. The moment I opened the Original Bacon Salt bottle I noticed a problem…it smelled more like BBQ sauce then bacon. I decide to try the Peppered Bacon Salt on the asparagus hoping that would be a little less sweet.

The Bacon Salt Parmesan Asparagus was good…it tasted a lot more unhealthy that it was heh. Ultimately though the Bacon Salt ended up tasting a bit more bacony than it smelled….but it still wasn’t quite bacony enough in my opinion. Needless to say Im a bit disappointed, but then again the essence of bacon is difficult to capture in a bottle. Really its just that its quite sweet and smokey tasting which is close but not quite bacon (Im scared to try the Hickory since I fear that will be even more BBQey). I’ll try a few more experiments (bacon edamame, bacon fries, fried chicken, etc) before I make my final judgment. As of right now Im sadly not totally sold on the Bacon Salt. Dont get me wrong, I’ll still use the Bacon Salt because it has a really good flavor (especially the Peppered one)…its just not quite up to my high bacon standards.

The sad tale of the turbaconucken that never was :(

As many of you know I was excited…no ecstatic about the plan to bacon wrap and deep fry a turducken this year for Thanksgiving. However my dreams were crushed by certain wussy boys who were afraid of the awesomeness that would be the turbaconducken. We had it all worked out…we would make the turducken then deep fry it until it was almost done then pull it out and wrap it in bacon and pop it in the oven for the rest of the way. It was perfect…there was no way it could go wrong! But at the last minute some of the guys decided it wouldnt work or something (I think they were just afraid of its awesomeness). Dreams = crushed.

Although not all was lost, due to the high number of people attending our Thanksgiving we decided one mega bird wasnt enough so we got a backup turkey. Needless to say, I claimed it as my own and announced that I would bacon wrap and roast it myself.

The plan was simple. Prepare the bird as normal: rub with oil and salt and pepper…. stuff with an onion, garlic and celery… place more onions, garlic, and celery in the pan…pop in the oven and roast. I basted it every 45 minutes to keep it moist and right before it was done I draped it with 2 lbs of delicious bacon. I also stuffed some bacon inside the bird and then cut up some pears and tossed them in the pan to roast along with some dried rose petals. After about 20 minutes the bird was done (a few pieces of bacon werent cooked all the way so I removed them, wrapped em in foil and tossed em back in the oven to finish up before draping them back on the bird).

I took the juice and made a gravy as you usually do, only I blended up the roasted pears and mixed that in (I also tossed in a few extra pieces of bacon to the gravy just to reinforce the bacon flavors).

The bird was carved and served…to my surprise the meat was very bacony tasting! I thought that the bacon would just infuse the skin but some how it permeated the deeper layers of the turkey giving it all a delicious bacony flavor. The pear gravy was a perfect accent adding the sweetness that the salty bacon needed (you know, for that yin/yang balance shit). I highly recommend trying a bacon wrapped turkey for anyone looking to pep up their bird this holiday season. Next time I want to try a maple syrup glaze instead of the pear, really I think just about any sweet topping would match perfectly.

All in all the bacon wrapped turkey was a total and complete success.

Oh and I guess the turducken wasnt too bad either….but it would’ve been better with bacon.


This turducken would look a lot happier if it wasnt naked…it needs a nice bacon suit.

Turbaconducken….all that is good in this world

Just moments ago my friend Rob sent me proof that there is a God and he is made of pure bacon and love.
Behold…..

Turbaconducken

It is the perfect harmony of turkey, duck and chicken all harmoniously wrapped in bacon and baked to perfection. Corey James of Bacon Today describes every juice detail for creating this culinary masterpiece.

I am currently trying to convince all my friends that this is really the only option for thanksgiving dinner.

Only we want to step it up a notch and deep fry it! My arteries and heart are swelling just thinking about it.

Baconnaise

There are very few things that can list my spirits and excite me on a Monday morning….unless it involved bacon. Behold, from the makers of Bacon Salt comes Baconnaise!

“Baconnaise is the ultimate bacon-flavored spread. Use it on sandwiches, salads, dips, sauces, chicken, fish and fried. Vegetarian safe!”

Bacconaise is available in Regular and Light and can be found at these locations or bought online via their web-page. Although I don’t see where it is available in their online store, you can call a number on their site to order. I personally am salivating at the thought of french fries dipped in bacon and extra bacony BLTs.
