10 Great Uses for Tricky Fish’s Bacon Jam

Bacon jam – a delicious, savory Southern condiment – is the secret to several of our Tricky Fish entrees including the cheeseburger, fried oyster BLT, and the fish sandwich. So popular in fact, that last Fall we shared our top secret recipe with all you fine folks. And yet, we are still frequently asked the question, “How can I use bacon jam at home?”

Don’t worry; your friends at Tricky Fish have come to the rescue! Here are 10 of our favorite ways to use bacon jam at home:

#1: Breakfast Omelet

Bacon is the quintessential breakfast meat. Slather some homemade bacon jam on an omelet to give it the perfect punch of flavor.

#2: Breakfast Sandwich

Create your own breakfast sandwich with an English muffin, fried egg, butter, and homemade bacon jam.

#3: Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Roast brussels sprouts with olive oil, salt, and pepper in the oven at 425 for 20 minutes or until done. When they are crispy and browned, take them out and slather a little bacon jam on top!

#4: Chips & Dip

Sour cream is good with pretty much anything, and bacon jam is no exception. Stir a little bacon jam in with sour cream, then dip your favorite chip.

#5: Burgers

We add bacon jam to our cheeseburgers at Tricky Fish and the combination is heaven! Want to try something a little different? Try blue cheese, caramelized onions, and bacon jam.

#6: Pasta

Buy some pre-made ravioli, cook using package directions, then slather bacon jam and butter on top instead of traditional pesto or marinara sauce.

#7: Salad

Warm the bacon jam and then add a dollop on top of your favorite salad.

#8: S’mores

Like that combination of sweet and savory? Spread a little bacon jam on a graham cracker before adding the chocolate and roasted marshmallow for an all-new twist on an old favorite.

#9: Grilled Cheese

The traditional grilled cheese sandwich is made even better when you slather a little homemade bacon jam on it before grilling.

#10: Pancakes and Waffles

Pancakes and waffles are great topped with syrup – and bacon jam!
