  • Author: The Hungry Waitress
  • Total Time: 30 minutes


Bourbon Bacon Jam is a great condiment to have on hand. Add some flavor to burgers, sandwiches, or toast. This bacon jam is delicious on anything really.


  • 1 package bacon
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup bourbon


  1. Start by frying the bacon in a large skillet. Fry the bacon until crispy (about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally). Take the crispy bacon out of the pan and place on a paper towel. Toss in the finely chopped onion into the bacon grease, and brown for around 2 minutes. Add the brown sugar, garlic powder and pepper. Stir until the brown sugar has dissolved. Then carefully pour in the bourbon. Cook down for around 5 minutes, or until the bourbon has evaporated by half. Chop up the crispy bacon, and stir back into the bourbon onion mixture.
