Do you love bacon well here is a perfect dip or use it as a topping.  Super easy to throw together.  Makes a wonderful dip or better yet use the Tomato Bacon Jam to top a hamburger, brat or what about a hot dog.

1/3 cup packed brown sugar
3 Tablespoons water
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Slip the outside skin to your tomatoes by placing them in boiling water for a few minutes.  Plunge them in cold water and remove the skin and core.

Cook bacon.  Remove and drain on paper towels.

Using 3 tablespoons of bacon grease saute the onion until soft.  Add back in the bacon, tomatoes, brown sugar, water, apple cider vinegar, mustard, paprika and red pepper.

Reduce heat and simmer for about 40 minutes or until mixture thickens.

Transfer everything to a blender or food processor and pulse 4 or 5 times.

Store in airtight container in refrigerator up to 5 days.

  1. I’ve never thought about doing something like this. It does sound like it would be delicious and top of the burger. I love what really into thrown in here at all taste wonderful together.

  2. You had me at bacon! I have a love/hate relationship with tomatoes, but I would give this a try just because of the bacon!

  3. Tomato… bacon… jam? I have never heard of such a combination, especially to make it as jam to put it on stuff. I must try it out!

  4. Oh this will make my husband and my sons extremely happy! They love their bacon and to have it like this – a tomato bacon jam is going to make them flip! It is nice that you can store it up to 5 days, although I know it would never last that long. Not with these voracious eaters I have in this house.
