If you love Pepper Jam, this is for you.
Recently, I came up with this very simple recipe. Although my local jam supplier makes a very unique Red Onion Chipotle jam, you can substitute a suitable purchased or homemade onion jam. The jam that I use here has some chipotle pepper “kick”, so adding a little pepper seasoning to intensify the heat to your liking would be a reasonable addition if you’re using a plain onion jam.
This is just a simple combination of softened cream cheese, jam, and bacon. 3 ingredients mixed together in a bowl with some chips on the side. How can you beat that?
8 oz. softened cream cheese
4 oz. onion jam (or your favorite flavor)
3-4 strips of cooked and diced bacon
Combine everything in a bowl. Garnish with sliced green onions or chopped red onion. Serve with your favorite crackers. Enjoy!
