What to Serve with Bacon Jam
If you’re looking for an easy way to elevate any meal, bacon jam is the perfect addition to your pantry. This sweet and savory bacon jam can add an exceptional, tangy flavor to a huge range of foods.
Here are some ideas of what to serve with bacon jam to upgrade any traditional meal or snack.
Bacon Jam Burger
With the flavors of bacon, onions, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, and more, bacon jam is the perfect topping for a delicious and flavorful burger.
Bacon jam pairs well with any burger and your favorite burger toppings, making it an easy way to upgrade your favorite burger and make a traditional meal feel gourmet.
Bacon Brie Bites
Like other kinds of jam, bacon jam pairs perfectly with brie cheese for any delicious snack. Just add brie and jam to a phyllo cup and bake for an easy and tasty snack or party appetizer. Or, for an even easier option for a party appetizer, you can use brie, bacon jam, and a variety of other meats, cheeses, and crackers for a charcuterie board for you and any guests to enjoy.
Classic bacon jam is always a great go-to for this snack, but there are plenty of flavored bacon jams you can try with this recipe as well, including a sweet chili bacon jam that goes great with brie and other cheeses.
Bacon Jam Breakfast Sandwich
You can’t go wrong with the classic combination of bacon and eggs for breakfast. For a more exciting twist on this traditional sandwich, you can replace bacon with bacon jam and pile the sandwich high with any style of egg and your favorite cheese, veggies, and sauces.
For other options for the most important meal of the day, you can lean into the sweet and tangy flavors of the jam and pair it with waffles or pancakes and a drizzle of maple syrup for a sweet and savory breakfast.
Bacon Grilled Cheese
Bacon and grilled cheese is another classic pairing that you can make even better with the inclusion of bacon jam. The toasted bread and combination of gooey cheese and bacon jam will make your grilled cheese even better, and the tanginess and maple flavor of the jam will add even more flavor than just frying your sandwich with bacon.
Just add a layer of bacon jam to your bread before toasting, and you’ll have the perfect melty grilled cheese with a winning flavor combination.
Bacon Jam Roasted Vegetables or Potatoes
Coating vegetables with bacon jam is an easy way to add some flavor to roasted veggies. It pairs well with a huge range of vegetables, so you can toss carrots, cauliflower, green beans, brussels sprouts, or more with this jam and some seasoning for an upgrade to conventional roasted vegetable side dishes.
For other side dish ideas, you can add bacon jam to roasted, fried, or mashed potatoes. Or, for an appetizer that everyone will love, you can use bacon jam in potato skins and pair it with other classic toppings.
Bacon Jam Toast
You don’t even have to do any extravagant cooking or baking to enjoy bacon jam. You can just toast any kind of bread and spread on some bacon jam as you would with any flavor jam.
It’s simple, easy, and tastes delicious, so you can enjoy it with any meal or as a quick snack.
