Gordon Ramsay Bacon Jam

Guys.  You NEED to try this bacon jam recipe.  

I have been wanting to try this for a while and I figured today would be a perfect day since it’s Sunday (of a long weekend!).  It’s from Gordon Ramsay’s website and is great for 1-2 people. It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. 

Oh and I also cut my hair off because it was bothering me. Haha weekends are so fun! 

You can watch my version of it on my TikTok.  Enjoy!!!


Bacon Jam:

  • 1 pound thick cut bacon, sliced into 1-cm pieces
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped (about 1 ½ cups)
  • 3 shallots, halved and sliced into thin half moons (1 heaping cup)
  • ½ (100g) cup brown sugar 
  • ½ cup (155 ml) maple syrup
  • ½ (125ml) cup freshly brewed coffee
  • ½ (115ml) cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ - ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes 
  1. Make the Bacon Jam: Add bacon to a large heavy bottomed skillet or dutch oven, separating the pieces with your fingers, and set over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally as to not scorch the bottom, until the fat renders out and bacon is starting to crisp, about 10 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove bacon from the pan and set aside. 
  2. Pour out bacon fat (reserve for another use) and leave about 1 tablespoon of fat in the pan. Reduce heat to medium-low then add onions and shallots. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions caramelize, about 20-25 minutes. Add a splash of water if the pan starts to get too dry.
  3. Once caramelized, return the bacon to the pan and add brown sugar, maple syrup, coffee, apple cider vinegar, and red pepper flakes and increase heat to medium-high to bring to a boil for about 1 minute.
  4. Reduce heat to a bare simmer and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thick and jammy and most of the liquid has cooked out, about 1 hour and 30 minutes - 2 hours. Remove from heat and adjust seasoning as needed. 
  5. If using now, spread on top of toasted bread. If using later, let cool to room temperature and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. 

All for now!!! Enjoy the long weekend. Happy President’s Day!
