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.

    • I found when I went gluten free I started eating more dairy and that gave me worse stomach aches and bloating than the gluten did. So now I have to avoid gluten and dairy.  Maybe you have a similar problem with something you are eating.  I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Hi! I received my "official" celiac diagnosis last week. I had an endoscopy last month that was originally looking for ulcers and h. pylori, but they did some biopsies of my duodenum since they were in the neighborhood and the biopsy came back "consistent with Celiac's disease" and later. They urged me to get my blood checked and follow up with my primary doctor. My blood work came back negative, but my doctor was confident it's Celiac so told me to stay away from gluten. I've been completely gluten free (or to the best of my knowledge) for 2 weeks now, and my results are mixed. At first, I felt great! My stomach was no longer CRAZY bloated once I stopped eating pasta and bread, my acne started healing, and the red rash on the back of my arms started to fade. That was the first few days. Lately, though, my acne is once again flaring up and I've been SO EXHAUSTED. I feel so tired all the time. Even now I have fatigue in my head, limbs, and I could hardly walk or move my body earlier today. I'm overweight and I like to go to the gym, but what used to be an easy workout for me is kicking my ass! I used to go to the gym and tear it up: HIIT on the treadmill followed by 40 minutes of heavy weight lifting. Now I can hardly finish 3 reps in my first set without feeling like a nap. I can't run anymore because my body feels clumsy and heavy. Also, I'm still bloated. I don't suffer from painful, acute bloating, but I struggle to pass gas and I look like I have pregnant belly. I think I'm also retaining water all over my body, and I'm not sure if that's normal? For whatever reason, I have this belief that water is mainly retained in the core and not arms, legs, and face. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you have to say/what you've experienced. Is this typical to first going gluten free?
    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
