Skillet Bacon Jam Review

Recently I signed up at Tomoson to be a reviewer for various products. One of the items I signed up to review is called Skillet Bacon Jam – yes, you read that correctly. I was a little leery, but the name intrigues me and I had to see what this stuff was all about. I do, after all, love bacon.

What is Skillet Bacon Jam you may ask? According to their web site, “we 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! USDA approved.”

The Skillet Bacon Jam arrived last week and I was either too scared or too busy to try it. Finally last night I opened it up to see what it was all about. Of course, when I opened it, The Tide was all up in my face wanting to get her own sample of the Skillet Bacon Jam. I’m sure she would give this product an A+. the Skillet Bacon Jam looks like a spreadable paste of little pieces of bacon. It smells like bacon and tastes like bacon too. I’m not really sure what you’re supposed to do with this stuff. I imagine you could put it over cream cheese and serve it with crackers at a dinner party or you could put it on a burger as pictured on their web site.

Since I’m not really sure how to use it, it would be helpful if their web site offered some recipes; but, alas I found none. I meant to take some pictures of it, but neglected to do that as well and needed to get this review up in a somewhat timely manner.

The Skillet Bacon Jam retails for $13 for an 11oz jar. The jar they sent me was a sample size and therefore quite smaller than 11 oz. I doubt I would pay $13 for this product since I can’t really figure out how to use it; not to mention the fact that I dislike jams and jellies in general. But, if you want to try it for yourself, then head on over to their web site and order yourself a jar.

If you have any specific questions about the product, you can email the company here.

Niman Ranch is a really, really good brand of bacon - no added chemicals, etc.
I'm not sure I would like that product though; I like my bacon to look like bacon!
You could always give it to the Tide as a little treat :)

I can see making some appetizery things out of it, but what could you make that you couldn't make with bacon slices for less money? I think The Tide lucked out on this one. ;) We need a picture of her enjoying this snack, please.

Ummm no thanks. Does not sound appealing at all. I agree with Erika - I want my bacon to look like bacon. I give you props for trying it.

I just wish I could have some good ole pork bacon right now!!! I LOVE bacon and they don't really offer it here since it is a muslim country and they don't eat pork. However, I'll pass on the spread and just sizzle me up some real stuff when I get home. You are super brave for trying it!!
