Mother's Day Gift Giving Guide -- Skillet Bacon Spread

Does your Mother like weird, off the wall products?  Do I have the gift for her -- Skillet Bacon Jam.  Yes, you read right -- Skillet Bacon Jam.  I couldn't believe that there was such a product out there and had to try it out for myself.  

What is Skillet Bacon Jam and How is it Made?:

Skillet Bacon Jam is a bacon spread condiment. To make this spread, they use niman ranch bacon and render it down along with onions, balsamic and other spices . It cooks for several hours until it is a perfect blend of smoky, tangy, savory and slightly sweet….basically spreadable bacony goodness!  And, it is USDA approved.
Just check out all the ways you can use this spread:
On grilled cheese, burgers, as a base for a vinaigrette, inside a scone or croissant or substitute it for bacon in a BJLT.  Also, try it on baked brie, sautéed in some scallops, roasted with some brussel sprouts, wilted in a spinach salad, on toast with a fried egg on top or finish a potato soup with a dollop of skillet bacon jam.

So, How Does It Taste?:
I thought this was a gag gift.  Who would want to eat a bacon spread?  But, I had to try it out and see for myself.  They wouldn't be selling this product if people wouldn't buy it, right?  Well, it took me a minute to get over the strong smoky smell.  I think it was just the balsalmic vinegar I was smelling. I tried out the bacon jam on a grilled cheese sandwich and on toast with a fried egg.  It took a few bites to get used to the bacony flavor on the grilled cheese.  But, I thoroughly enjoyed the bacon jam on toast with a fried egg.  It just felt like it went together, compared to the grilled cheese.  
Overall, this is a very unique product and would make a great gift for those who love bacon.

About the Creator of Skillet Bacon Jam:

In 2007, Chef Josh Henderson created Skillet Street Food in Seattle, one of the first food experiences of what has since become a prototype for the national street food movement that has swept the country. Out of a vintage Airstream trailer, he created innovative lunch menus based on American-inspired food prepared with classic technique and seasonal ingredients. The reception from Seattle'ites was immediate and passionate. They were drawn to the chef driven food, the excitement of being a part of a new, energetic, urban experience, and to the intimate involvement through the use of social media channels that intensified the connection with the Skillet brand.

Since then, the business has grown up. Josh is still creating great menus served throughout the streets of Seattle from the Airstream. But Skillet is now much more than that. It is a thriving catering enterprise, supporting weddings, private parties, and corporate events throughout the Pacific Northwest. It is a food products business, distributing its signature Bacon Jam product through retailers across the US and Canada. And, in the Spring of 2011, it will become a brick-and-mortar restaurant located in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood.

The original street food business has become a brand but has not strayed from its roots. The thread is still there: great food prepared with care, technique and the best of ingredients; an innovative experience that consistently surprises and satisfies; and a feeling of being personally connected to Skillet, in all its manifestations. We see this as our mission - to continue to deliver on these themes and to continue to find new channels though which we can expand the brand and the family of loyal Skillet customers.
