Easy Bourbon Bacon Jam recipe

Prep Time:

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook time: 45 minutes

This recipe is so easy to make and will have you slathering this Bourbon Bacon Jam on everything in sight … especially Southern Recipe Pork Rinds!

 

Ingredients:

1-1/2 pounds of bacon

2 cups of shallots, finely chopped

1 cup Vidalia onion or any sweet onion, finely chopped

4 garlic cloves finely chopped

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/2 cup bourbon

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 bag of Southern Recipe Pork Rinds, for dipping



Directions:

  1. Fry the bacon in two frying pans to allow for room for it to crisp up properly. Cook over medium heat until it browns perfectly. You want the bacon a little crisper with as little visible fat as possible. Transfer to paper towels to drain excess fat.
  2. Leave about 1 to 2 tablespoons of the fat in one of the pans. Add shallot and onion to the pan, cook over medium heat until caramelized. Add the garlic and cook for two minutes.
  3. Add the chili powder and smoked paprika, stir to combine.
  4. Increase heat to high and add the bourbon (carefully) and maple syrup. Bring to a boil, stir and scrape the pan so all the bacon bits come loose. Continue boiling for 3 minutes.
  5. Add vinegar and brown sugar, continue to boil for 4 minutes.
  6. Using a sharp knife cut the bacon into small pieces. You can also tear it by hand so it looks more rustic.
  7. Toss the bacon into the pan, reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes – stirring as the mixture thickens and begins to look jam.
  8. Serve with Southern Recipe Pork Rinds, over warm bread or transfer to jars and store in the fridge.

Mac & Three Cheeses with Pork Rind Crust

Prep Time:

45 min

Servings:

6 servings

Ingredients:

4 oz Hot & Spicy Southern Recipe Pork Rinds, crushed
3/4 lb penne
1 1/2 cups heavy cream or half-and-half
3 Tbsp finely chopped yellow onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbsp all purpose flour
4 oz sharp white cheddar,
4 oz mozzarella, shredded
1/2 cup parmesan, freshly grated
2 Tbsp sour cream
3/4 tsp lemon zest
1 1/2 tsp chopped fresh thyme
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 extra large egg yolk



Directions:

Heat oven to 400°. Butter a 10-inch cast-iron skillet. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta until al dente. Drain and return to pot.

Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, bring heavy cream, onion and garlic to a simmer. Transfer 1/2 cup of the cream to a medium bowl and gradually whisk in flour; return mixture to saucepan. Set the bowl aside and continue whisking over moderate heat until thickened, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in both cheeses and half of the Parmesan until melted. Stir in the sour cream, zest and 1 teaspoon of thyme and season with salt and pepper.

Place the egg yolk in the medium bowl and gradually whisk in 1/2 cup cheese sauce. Gradually whisk the egg mixture into the saucepan. Pour cheese sauce over pasta and toss to coat evenly. Add pasta to cast-iron skillet and sprinkle with remaining cheese and crushed pork rinds.

Bake for about 25 minutes, until bubbling and golden brown. Sprinkle with remaining thyme. Allow mac and cheese to rest for about 5 minutes (if you can stand it), then serve.
