Bacon Jam over the Toast or with the scrambled Egg or even with the Burger or just as a side; the choices are varied and the level of comfort is as comforting as the Bacon Jam is. Needless to say, this post is about Bacon Jam, a favorite spread of mine. In fact, I make it in small batches as Pasta at times takes her toast with the Jam, however, I try to limit the consumption given I use freshly brewed coffee to make it! It is different fact, that I, myself cannot resist much whenever I am available with the Bacon Jam.
