Bacon and Jam

It all started with a fun fact included in my daily doodle a couple of days ago.  An educational and delightful conversation ensued between myself and an excellent writer. I encourage you to wander through her words and read between the lines.

We discussed what weird food combinations we liked and how some were learned from a young age. You can follow along in the comments if you would like to try some that we listed. I chose toast smeared with jam and topped with bacon. I used white bread, smoke-cured bacon, and Smucker’s Strawberry Jelly. I know it’s probably not the type of ingredients that Liz uses but as promised, I tried.

The results: OH MY YUM!!! As I’m waiting for the masking fluid to dry (my first attempt at using that stuff) I thought it would be a perfect time. The salty smoke bacon aroma of the meat cooking woke everyone in the house. I let it cool and crumbled it. I have a weird thing about my toast needing to be cooled before the topping is added. In my impatience, I waved the toast in the air to cool faster. I smeared the jelly on and sprinkled crumbled bacon on top. My kids, ‘EWW mom what are you doing?’ My husband, ‘Umm please don’t try anything too disgusting.’ I took a bite and they all watched with bated breath. Yum sounds were all I could make.

I ended up sharing with everyone before they would make their own. So, I ask you:

What is your weirdest or oddest food mash-up that you eat?

I would enjoy the culinary adventure. If I can get enough writers, culinary adventurous cooks, and just people that love food-I would like to start a feature of these people once a week. They can include the history, images, and everything. I’m really excited about this. The reason being, you can learn more about cultures and people from food. It’s a way we show love and comfort one another.

  1. Many thanks for kind words. You spoil me ♥♥♥
    I’m so glad that you liked it.
    My combination would be – crispy toast, a bit of butter melted on it, cranberry jam and crispy bacon, straight from the oven – my today’s breakfast:))

    1. I thought about putting butter on there as well but skipping it didn’t make me love it any less 🙂 I’m so glad you enjoyed the popcorn and even siracha is good. Yes, salt on the watermelon but just a sprinkling. After that, I would suggest the peanut butter and onion sandwiches next but we can start small 🙂

  2. Sounds like a strange combination, but when you actually try it, it’s pretty good. It’s kind of like bacon with maple syrup. However, definitely can’t eat that everyday lol.
