Take Your Breath Away Bacon Jam


What’s not to like about this recipe, It’s got Mad Dog, bacon, and maple syrup?

You can spread it on toast in the morning or serve it with cheese after a dinner party. It’s terrific with wine, beer, coffee, or even juice. And, it makes an incredible Christmas gift for the chili head in your life. What more could you want? We’re not sure either.

In case you’re wondering, this recipe makes about a cup and a half and will keep for a month in the fridge (but it won’t last that long).


10 ounces bacon, chopped
1 large Onion, chopped
½ teaspoon Paprika
4 cloves Garlic, pressed
½ teaspoon Mad Dog Hot Sauce Silver Collector's Edition
3 tablespoons Maple syrup
2 tablespoons Brown sugar
¼ cup Apple cider vinegar
¾ cup Milk stout


Before you begin, measure out all of your ingredients as the recipe goes rather quickly. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook until crisp and brown. Then, remove the bacon from the heat and drain on a towel-lined plate. Add the onions to the pan and sauté for about 5 minutes, until soft.

Add Mad Dog Hot Sauce Silver Collector's Edition, paprika, and garlic to the onions and turn the heat down to low. Stir then add the maple syrup. Add brown sugar and cook until dissolved. Then, add the vinegar and milk stout. Turn the heat back up to medium-high heat and bring the mixture to a boil.

Once it reaches the boiling point, return the bacon to the pan, and reduce the heat back down to low. When the liquid has reduced, remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Then, scoop the entire mixture into the blender or food processor and pulse until you have your preferred consistency.

Allow the jam to cool for at least an hour before serving. And, store in the fridge for about a month.
