Smokin’ Hot Bacon Marmalade
This easy, homemade condiment adds a burst of flavor to almost any dish from seafood to scrambled eggs.
2 small yellow onions
2 jars or packets real bacon bits (3 to 4 ounces each), no substitutes
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/4 cup each dark brown sugar, apple cider vinegar and maple-flavor pancake syrup
½ cup strong coffee
1 tablespoon Tabasco sauce, regular or chipotle
Peel and trim onions and cut them in half, north pole to south pole. Then slice in thin crescents. Sizzle bacon bits, onion and garlic in hot oil until onion is tender. Stir in brown sugar, vinegar, syrup and coffee. Bring to a boil until slightly thickened, then stir in Tabasco. Serve warm, at room temperature, or chilled. Flavor is intense, so spoon it sparingly over almost any cooked meat, seafood, casserole or egg dish.
Cook’s note: Pass the Tabasco for those who like even more heat.
