Bacon Jam with Classic Hamburger

On the menu tonight – Bacon Jam! I’ve seen bacon jam included in a lot of hamburger recipes I have seen on Food Network. It always looks so good, I decided to make some. It was SO GOOD!

Start with about 2 pounds of your favorite bacon by cooking it until crispy. Once it has cooled enough to touch, chop it into relatively small pieces.

Then, add the chopped bacon and the rest of the other ingredients back to the same pan you cooked the bacon. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for about 45 minutes.

Since I saw it served over a hamburger, that’s what made – a Classic Hamburger. All I had on that burger was the bacon jam, a little lettuce, a few pickles, and it was fantastic.

If you want to serve something a little different and a LOT delicious, make a batch of bacon jam. Let me know how it turns out.
