Whiskey Bacon Onion Jam #SundaySupper

If there is one condiment that’s missing from your pantry but shouldn’t be it’s Whiskey Bacon Onion Jam. From burgers to omelettes to grilled cheese sandwiches, it’s the perfect topping for any dish.

Let me tell you, I am really glad I don’t make food resolutions – otherwise there would be no Whiskey Bacon Onion Jam in your life today.  First week into the new year and not only am I bringing you a dish with a little booze but also bacon.  It’s how I roll, deal with it. :-) 

In all seriousness though, you need this jam in your life.  Is it a little decadent cooking down onions in bacon fat rendered from one pound of bacon? Sure.  However one taste of this sweet and savory jam and you’ll forget all about that bacon fat.

Plus let’s be honest. It’s cold out there. How many of you are living in a area with temperatures in the single digits or below freezing right now? You need something with some heft, to keep you warm and oh did I mention it can be done in your slow cooker? 

#SundaySupper is slowly bringing the new year today. We have quite the lineup of recipes using slow cookers, or err in my case my dutch oven because my slow cooker is still in a box in my apartment and I didn’t want to search for it.  It’s okay though, I’m going to tell you how to make this the stovetop way and the slow cooker way.  Whatever method you choose, it’s still mostly hands off and oh the smell.  There is something completely intoxicating about bacon and caramelized onions.  Just me? Fine, I’ll eat all the bacon and onion jam.

This jam is incredibly versatile. Top it on some deviled eggs as show here, on some burgers, in your omelette, mixed in some greek yogurt for a quick and easy onion dip, simply spread on crackers or bread or paired with grilled cheese.

Recipe type: Condiment, Dip
Ingredients
  • 1lb good quality bacon, cut into 1inch pieces
  • 2 large sweet onions, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup whiskey
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
  • kosher salt and black pepper
Instructions
  1. In a large dutch oven over medium heat cook your bacon until crisp. If it starts to brown too quickly, lower the heat to medium. Remove with a slotted spoon and reserve excess bacon grease.
  2. If using the dutch oven method: Place the sliced onions in the dutch oven, still on medium heat and coat with the reserved bacon grease. Cook about 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the onions start to soften and become translucent.
  3. After about 10 minutes, stir in the brown sugar, whiskey, vinegar, soy sauce and worcestershire sauce. Add the bacon back to the onion mixture.
  4. Stir to combine and cook on low with the cover onion, stirring occasionally for about an hour to an hour and a half. You want the onions to be soft and caramelized (they will not get very dark) and most of the liquid to evaporate.
  5. Turn off the heat and let cool for 20-30 minutes before transferring to a blender or food processor with a slotted spoon. Leave any reserve liquid in the pot.
  6. Pulse until you receive your desired consistency. Taste and season with salt and pepper per your taste.
  7. If using a slow cooker. Complete step 1 but transfer the bacon grease to your slow cooker with the onions, cooked bacon, sugar, whiskey, vinegar, soy sauce and worcestershire. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or until the onions are soft and caramelized.
  8. After letting it cool for 20-30 minutes, continue with the remaining steps.

  4. Happy Sunday Susan. You speak the truth. A couple of months ago my friend brought me some bacon onion jam and was possibly the best thing I’ve ever put in my mouth … and on a burger, Oh my. I love your addition of whisky. A must try. Pinned. Nice cooking with you in Sunday Supper.

  5. Oh my gosh, how I would love this slathered on a sandwich or just scooped out of the jar with a spoon. That’s how I roll :)

  8. It’s okay to indulge with a little bacon and booze as long as you keep up with the other 85% of your healthy eating new year resolution :)

  9. I’m very glad you don’t do resolutions :) I’ll be honest – I’ve been bacon jam on top of a lot of things in the last few years (sometimes, it can be overkill), but I’ve never seen it on top of deviled eggs. This is freakin’ BRILLIANT.

  10. Moderation in all things…including moderation! I don’t really do resolutions either…but I’m doing Lighten Up month in January to atone for my holiday transgressions. However, this is #1 on my list to make come February. I can only imagine how popular this would be for Super Bowl Sunday apps!!

  21. I never would have thought of putting it on hard boiled eggs but it would be divine!! That looks so good and so different. Love it!!!

  22. Yes, I absolutely positively need this in my life. A whole pound of bacon and two big onions in this jam sounds heavenly to me. I’m dreaming of the possibilities of what it can be used on/with.
