This Bacon Onion Jam recipe will upgrade your cheese platter, burgers, and biscuits!


  • 12 oz (1 packet) sliced bacon
  • 1 medium sized onion, chopped
  • 2 cloved garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 cup agave syrup
  • 1/3 cup breffed coffee
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 dash curry
  • 1 dash nutmeg (optional)
  • 1 tbsp bourbon (optional)



Cut the bacon in small pieces and then cook until the fat is rendered and the bacon is getting crispy- about 20 minutes. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon, and discard all of the fat except 1 tbsp of the bacon fat. Cook the onion and garlic until translucent, scraping up crispy bits.

Next, remove the onion mix and add to a crockpot. Add the remaining ingredients and let simmer for 2-3 hours on high, or until the mixture is thick and bubbly.

Pulse the mix in a food processor or with a hand blender until a smooth consistent paste like texture. Spoon into a cute jar and keep in the fridge for up to a week.
