Quick Bacon Jam

Chef Mandy Landefeld makes easy to follow recipes based on the “ish” method making it fun to cook in the kitchen. She is a chef, a lifestyle expert, an interior decorator, and mother of 3. I have had the pleasure of working with her several times at The Cooks Warehouse where she provides expert instruction in the classes provided there.

There are several dishes that could deserve a little extra “something something” such as Crock Pot Pulled Pork Tacos or a great grilled pork loin. If you haven’t guessed, it’s bacon jam. This super easy accompaniment will give your next meal that extra kick it deserves. If making ahead like I did, make sure to warm up the jam prior to serving. Don’t forget to let us know what you have put this bacon goodness on!
