Until I discovered Skillet Bacon Jam. This is a delicious spreadable bacon condiment created by the folks at Skillet Street Foods. This company is local legend in Seattle, Washington, and they got their start creating awesome lunch menus served out of an Airstream trailer, Food Truck style, using the finest seasonal gourmet ingredients and innovative culinary techniques. This caught on like wildfire in the Seattle locale, and droves of hungry people flocked to this food truck every day to sample their innovative fare. Skillet Street Foods has evolved into a brick and mortar restaurant, and also offer consumers nationwide the opportunity to purchase one of their most loved taste sensations: Skillet Bacon Jam.
But what exactly IS Skillet Bacon Jam? Sure, it may sound funny, but the concept is truly ingenius! Skillet Street takes Niman Ranch Bacon and renders it down along with onions, balsamic vinegar and other spices . It cooks for several hours until it is a perfect blend of smoky, tangy, savory and slightly sweet….basically spreadable bacony goodness!
I also used Skillet Bacon Jam while making twice baked potatoes. This was fantastic! I made my twice baked potatoes like I usually do, with a blend of different cheeses. I simply added a dab of Skillet Bacon Jam to my cheesy potato mixture before I filled my potato skins to bake them the second time. Again, the Skillet Bacon Jam was a real treat, and added a whole new and unexpected dimension to my potatoes. There is the distinct flavor of bacon, of course, but add to it the rendered down onions, balsamic vinegar, and their secret blend of spices, and you have a flavor explosion of epic proportions. The best part? This condiment is easy to use and can be used in so many ways! The possibilities are simply endless!
