Teriyaki Bacon Jam Recipe

Teriyaki Bacon Jam Recipe
Sometimes it’s nice to have a condiment that is good on everything from appetizers to main dishes. The following Teriyaki Bacon Jam is one such condiment. I first developed it when I was making Teriyaki Burgers with Grilled Pineapple and realized that ketchup and mustard didn’t go well on the burgers. Then after combining internet recipes and testing several batches, especially on those luscious teriyaki burgers, settled on this version. It was well received by the Hancock tasters, and I can’t serve the burgers now without it. I’ve since found that the jam is good on bruschetta, with cream cheese on crackers, over grilled meats, fish, and poultry, and as an addition to a quiche-like tart. The possibilities are endless.
This is a condiment worth making; everyone will love it. While it has an Asian accent, it can be changed a bit by omitting the teriyaki sauce, doubling the brown sugar, and adding a tablespoon or two of balsamic vinegar to change the flavor. Either way, this Teriyaki Bacon Jam is a must-have condiment. Make sure you have plenty on hand for your next cookout.

  1. Cook the bacon in a large skillet until crisp.
  2. Remove the bacon from the pan to drain, and drain all but 2 tablespoons bacon fat from the skillet.
