Cure Your Bacon Fever with the TBJ Gourmet's Emergency Bacon Kit or Boar's Reserve 3-Pack of Bacon Jams - Everything Tastes Better with Bacon! (Review)

 Disclosure: I was sent a sample from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

Is there one food you can't enough of?  For my husband it is bacon. He will have bacon with an egg sandwich in the morning, then come lunch time loves whipping up a quick BLT sandwich, and for dinner he is always looking for ways to incorporate bacon into whatever I making. From bacon on his burgers, to bacon crumbled up in pasta and salads, to bacon on his pizza, wherever he thinks bacon will pair with something, he will add it.  So, when I stumbled across the TBJ Gourmet Bacon Jam website recently looking for just the perfect gift for him for Christmas, I knew I hit "bacon"...I mean gold. :-)  

Bacon lovers everywhere will rejoice this holiday season when they wake to find TBJ Gourmet Bacon Jam in their stockings or under the tree. Maybe they will get lucky and find that Santa left them with the TBJ Gourmet's Emergency Bacon Kit to help them make it into the new year with three jars of bacony goodness.  

The Emergency Bacon Kit contains three mouth-watering flavors sure to delight the taste buds of bacon fanatics like my husband, including  a 9oz jar of our Classic Bacon Jam and a jar of both our Smoked Bacon Salt and Maple Sugar Rub. You can use the classic bacon jam as a delicious spread, as a marinade, or even use a dip.  With one spoonful of this jam you can elevate any snack or meal to the next level, and give it just the right about of bacon WOW bacon lovers look for.

I was recently sent the TBJ Gourmet's Emergency Bacon Kit to review, and knew just the person to help me sample each of the three jams.  You would think it was Christmas morning when my husband saw the kit.  He had no idea what was inside of it, but knew it had to be good when he saw the cool pig in shades on the front, along with slabs of mouthwatering bacon.  Once I opened the kit and showed him the three jam jars inside, he was excited to try them out.  The classic uncured bacon jam stood out to him, and he said he wanted to try this sweet and savory spread with a grilled cheese sandwich for dinner.  

That night he took charge in the kitchen and whipped up grilled cheese sandwiches for everyone.  I have to say, I was reluctant at first to take a bite as I am not a big jam or spreads type person, but it smelled really good, and my girls and husband were already going back for second and third bites.  With my first bite, I could taste the tender pork belly and caramelized onions, with the hint of sugar.  It really added to the flavor of the cheddar grilled cheese and left my mouth watering and wanting to take another bite. I told my husband this would be good on burgers, too, so we'll be trying this tomorrow night for dinner.

Even though my girls are not big bacon eaters like my husband, they were curious to see how the smoked bacon salt, so today in place of kosher salt on their homemade potato chips, they sprinkled a little of this bacon infused salt on them.  They really liked the smoky taste this salt gave to the homemade chips, and said when dipped in ketchup, they tasted even better.  Mmm, I am getting hungry just thinking of these chips earlier. Not only did they smell good in the plate, but as you brought it to your mouth, you could smell the bacon salt combination.

The Smoked Bacon Maple Sugar is recommended to be used with pork loin to elevate the flavors.  Unfortunately I didn't have any on hand and couldn't find it at the market. So, we switched things up and used it on pork chops.  WOW! What a great really made our taste buds dance.  The combination of the maple sugar and smoky bacon along with the pork made for a tasty dinner.  Even my oldest daughter who is a picky eater wanted to try it, and after the first bite, she was asking for a pork chop of her own to eat.

If you are bacon lover or know someone who is?...or, if you are a foodie or just like to be adventurous with spreads and jams and trying out new flavor combinations, I highly recommend you check out the TBJ Gourmet Bacon Jam line.  

We really enjoyed sampling the jam, dry rub and bacon infused salt with our meals.  It even got my husband who isn't big on cooking or meal prep wanting to get in the kitchen just to find new ways to incorporate these tasty bacon products into the mix, and elevate the flavors of the food we cooked up.  The TBJ Gourmet's Emergency Bacon Kit is the perfect gift to gift those hard to shop for people who say they have everything. I doubt they have tried these TBJ Gourmet Bacon products. But, once they do, they will be hooked like we are, and want to reach for them when they want to spice up a dish, need a good spread for crackers or on a burger, or need to bring a dip to an upcoming holiday gathering.  

You can't go wrong with bacon, and the folks at TBJ Gourmet knock it out of the park with their bacon products.
