So I`m not really sure what category this falls into other than just amazeballs whether it be a condiment, add in, side dish or entrée but I`m leaning towards entrée. I mean anything you just start eating with a spoon or fork can be a main course right. This simple man`s plan to better eating today is Jammin Bacon Jam. I`ll typically sign up for anything bacon related but this is just over the top good. A little sweet, a little spice, a lot rich & just pure bacony goodness! The possibilities here are pretty limitless. Add to a burger, with eggs or a crostini which I did here, to your next BLT as the B portion, stir into the next batch of mac-n-cheese, serve with crackers or like I said before just grab a spoon. This is a really great addition for your next festive occasion, party or game day eats. Whatever you decide you just can`t go wrong.

Bacon- 1 lb chopped
