Skillet Bacon Jam Green

bacon spreadPopular comedians create entire skits about the love of bacon. Entire websites are devoted to bacon. People tweet about bacon. The plethora of bacon products lately seem to support that statement, with plush bacon toys, bacon cologne, and chocolate covered bacon. While none of those products are of particular interest, when Our Daily Green was presented with the opportunity to review Skillet Street Food's hot new condiment, Skillet Bacon Spread, we were intrigued. Could green be better with bacon? Could bacon be green?

Bacon indeed can be green when it is sourced from Niman Ranch, a sustainable network of U.S. family farmers and ranchers – 650 and growing. Our Daily Green has decried factory farming of food several times in the past. It is important to support companies that support ethical farming. This product was also featured in the latest issue of Food & Wine and was named one of the Top 5 Food Trends by the Natural Foods merchandiser trade group.

Skillet Bacon Spread is a fabulous mix Niman Ranch bacon rendered with caramelized onions, balsamic and other spices. It cooks for several hours until it is a perfect blend of smoky, tangy, savory and slightly sweet. It is reminiscent of a spreadable spinach salad dressing. Our Daily Green had a party to attend over the weekend and decided to make an appetizer with the product and solicit the opinions of the guests.

Since the spread had such a rich bacon flavor, we decided to make a cross between spinach salad and BLT's on a cracker. We spread a low fat cream cheese on a bite sized cracker, a thin layer of the Skillet Bacon Spread, julienned fresh spinach, and half a cherry tomato. Other serving suggestions included grilled cheese, burgers, as a base for a vinaigrette, inside a scone or croissant, substitute it for bacon in a BJLT, 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, finish a potato soup with a dollop.

The appetizers were a hit with many compliments about the unusual but delicious product. They were gone within the first 15 minutes of the party. Not everything is better with bacon, but Skillet Street Food's Bacon Spread certainly makes the case that it is. We loved trying this product and hope to find it in a nearby store soon. It can also be ordered online.
