Michael Symon's Bacon and Onion Jam

Nelda Carnley


This is not my recipe, I saw Michael Symon cook this on The Chew. He made a grilled cheese with it but I put it on a sandwich made with grilled pork loin and barbeque sauce then grilled it like a grilled cheese. Very good. I was ask to post this recipe is the reason I am posting a Michael Symon recipe.
