Bacon Jam Recipe

Hands-On Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour, 45 minutes | Makes 3 cups

 

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds sliced bacon, cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 medium yellow onions, cut into smallish dice
  • 3 garlic cloves, smashed and peeled
  • 3/4 cup strongly brewed coffee
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar, or less to taste
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (the real deal, please)

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet over mediumish heat, cook the bacon, stirring occasionally, until the fat is rendered and the bacon is lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to paper towel-lined plates to drain.
  • 2. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon drippings from the skillet and reserve for another use. Add the onions and garlic to the skillet and cook until the onions are translucent, about 6 minutes. Add the coffee, vinegar, brown sugar, and maple syrup and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring and scraping up any browned bits from the skillet, for 2 minutes. Add the bacon and stir to combine.
  • 3. If making this on a stove top, reduce the heat to a bare simmer and cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the liquid almost completely evaporates and turns syrupy, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

    If making this in a slow-cooker, transfer the mixture to a 6-quart slow-cooker and cook on high, uncovered, until the liquid almost completely evaporates and turns syrupy, 3 1/2 to 4 hours.
  • 4. Let the bacon concoction cool slightly before transferring it to a food processor and pulsing until coarsely chopped. Spoon the bacon lusciousness into individual jars or other resealable containers and refrigerate for up to 4 weeks. Transfer to a pan and rewarm gently over low heat prior to indulgi

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with foil.
  • steps_2.png
    1/2 bag Tater Tots (thawed to room temperature)
    1 8-ounce package Sharp Cheddar Cheese (cut in 1/4-inch squares)
    Hot Sauce
    1 16-ounce package Bacon (strips cut in half)
    1/2 cup Brown Sugar
    To assemble, cut a small whole in each tater tot and place cheese in opening. Dash with hot sauce and wrap in bacon. Secure with toothpick, then roll in brown sugar. Place on baking sheet and repeat with remaining taters.
  • steps_3.png
     
    Bake about 15 to 20 minutes, flipping tots halfway through so that bacon cooks evenly. The cheese may bubble out and burn, but you can trim or pull it off when you take them out to cool. Serve warm.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. Cut each slice of bacon in half for the perfect size strip to wrap each tot.
    2. Roll each bacon bundle in brown sugar for extra crunch.

Bacon Brittle Recipe

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Roughly chop 4 slices of bacon and place in a food processor. Process bacon until it is finely chopped and forms a ball in the bowl.
  2. Cook bacon over medium to medium high heat, depending on your stove, until evenly browned. Drain bacon pieces in a fine mesh sieve and discard fat.
  3. In a medium saucepan combine sugar and corn syrup. Clip on a candy thermometer and cook to 300° F. Stir constantly.
  4. When sugar reaches 300° F remove from heat and remove candy thermometer. Stir in baking soda and bacon pieces and stir vigorously until all ingredients are well combined.
  5. Pour mixture onto a baking sheet lined with Reynold's Wrap Nonstick Foil. Allow candy to rest until it is cool enough to handle comfortably but not cold.
  6. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the top of the candy and allow them melt. Spread chocolate evenly over the candy with a long spatula or knife.
  7. Place candy in the freezer just until the chocolate has completely hardened.
  8. Cut candy into pieces with a very sharp knife.
  9. Store candy in a single layer in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.

Servings : 8

Tasty Trashy Taters

Holy Toledo! Those sound amazing!

 


I love this bacon recipe-- my MIL taught me how to make it years ago. It's not really a recipe, at this point I just do it by feel but I'll try....

GERMAN POTATO SALAD

Boil about 4 good sized (like a russet) potatoes in salted water. When tender, drain, cool, peel and slice.

Meanwhile, in a large pot such as a Dutch oven, fry about a half pound of bacon until crisp. Remove from pan and drain on paper towels.

Retain about 2-3 tbsp. bacon grease in the pot, and sauté in it a small, finely minced onion till tender. Stir in 2 tbsp. each, sugar and flour of choice or cornstarch over low heat until smooth.

Add about 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar, when that is incorporated, increase heat to medium and stir in 2 cups of water until thickened and bubbly. (You may need more water) Add 1/2 tsp. celery seed and salt and pepper to taste.

Gently toss the potato slices onto the sauce. Crumble bacon and toss some in and sprinkle the rest on top. Enjoy.

This doubles or triples easily for parties, BBQs, etc and can be made ahead and reheated.

That looks very similar to my Grammy's German potato salad, only she only uses red potatoes. I don't like russets in a potato salad. Too starchy. Blech. (Then again I just generally don't like russets.) We also use the same dressing for hot lettuce. Perfect for chilly late summer evenings. Lettuce with hot dressing and bacon? Yes please! German potato salad is probably my very favorite thing she ever made that wasn't baked goods.

 

 

Drain bacon pieces in a fine mesh sieve and discard fat.

 

This is clearly bad instructions. What she meant to say was save the fat for a more appropriate use!

Pig Candy

Use as many strips of bacon as you want (you will want a LOT)

coat each slice on both sides with dark brown sugar.

Bake in a rimmed pan on a rack at about 400 until bacon is done (careful, don't burn)

Let it cool.

Eat it up.

Same as bacon candy....just plain old bacon in the oven -- 350 for 20 mins....son has been getting off work at 230am and baking bacon -- two mornings this past week I have woken to foil covered cookie sheets with only bacon fat remaining ;)

 

Going have to stock a few other easy snacks for him -- certainly don't want to impede the work thing  :wub:

If I had to wake up every day smelling bacon I couldn't eat I'd go crazy! On the other hand, I agree that I'd do nearly anything to keep my daughter happily working.

I make it for my husband when I am going to be ask him for something I know he won't want to say yes to. Always a day or two before I ask so it doesn't seem like bribery. :D

Thank you :)

Jalapano poppers:

 

1 package cream cheese

~11 jalapeno peppers

1 package bacon (I usually use turkey bacon because it has less fat, but am not sure what kinds are gluten-free)

 

cut peppers in half (long way).  remove most of the seeds/membrane - i like to keep a little membrane in for a little heat, or you can remove it all if you do not like spicy.  fill pepper halves with cream cheese.  wrap each pepper half with 1 strip of bacon. 

 

cook:

winter:  bake in oven at 350 degrees for ~40 minutes (or until bacon is fully cooked)

summer:  cook on grill.  med heat, ~ 10 min then flip and cook another 10 minutes (or until bacon is done).  be careful when flipping, because the cheese tends to ooze out if you aren't careful.

One of my favorites is a good party food.  Buy cherry tomatoes.  Wash them.  Cut the tops off and reserve (if you want).  Use a melon baller or a small spoon to scoop the guts of the tomato out.  Discard.  Turn the tomatoes upside down on paper towels for about a half an hour to drain the juice off.

 

Meanwhile, cook some bacon until crisp.  Crumble it and mix with some mayo and sliced green onion.  You can add parsley to this.  You can also add parmesan cheese.  Some recipes call for this but I've never tried it.  Add enough mayo to hold it all together.  Stuff the tomatoes with this mixture and place them on a platter that has been lined with a bed of curly parsley.  This prevents them from rolling around.  You can cap them with the tops if you want.  If you do, you'll need to spear them with a toothpick (preferably a decorative one) to keep them in place.

 

These need to be made fresh but you can keep them in the fridge for up to two hours.

    • Now that my initial rage has calmed a tad.... your daughter has to fulfill 4 out of 5 of the diagnostic criteria. Second opinion can do a gene test. If positive, then she will have4 out of 5 of the dx criteria to dx without a positive biopsy. See: http://www.gastro.org/news_items/a-biopsy-should-not-be-required-to-make-the-diagnosis which says in part: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.   Also see: http://www.tenderfoodie.com/blog/2014/5/1/dr-fasano-on-new-gut-autoimmune-research-autism-clearing-up.html She can get a dx after her symptoms resolve on a gluten-free diet!
    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!
    • Celiac disease may lead to a host of other inflammatory, gluten-related ... Fortunately, Diet Doc offers gluten-free diet plans which are customized to ... View the full article
    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.
