Bacon Jam Recipe and Bacon Jam Peanut Butter Burger

Yes, you read that right. It’s a bacon jam recipe for a burger made with peanut butter, and it’s lip smacking taste heaven.

It’s the bite that makes your eyebrows raise and your eyes close. It sounds strange, maybe even awful, but it’s not. It’s a perfect bite. It might even be my best bite of this year so far.

I got the idea from a food truck at the Taste of Buffalo a few summers ago. I never forgot how good their bacon burger was and we all agreed it was the most memorable bite of the night. The Taste of Buffalo is the biggest of it’s kind in the country and yet stood out. That should convince you that this is a very worthy burger. Bacon Jam Recipe by Angela Roberts

The bacon jam, made is with shallots and maple syrup, is best if made the day before, giving those flavors time to meld. I’ve noted that if you don’t have apples, use peaches or nectarines.

The angel biscuit is a yeast biscuit,  perfect for sliders. It doesn’t fall apart and will hold up well.

I preferred the creamy peanut butter, but feel free to use chunky if that’s your thing.

I also flavored the ground beef with dijon mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Instead of frying the burgers, I cooked them slowly in the oven so they would  be very juicy. Stay away from adding any cheese.

For a Paleo Option, use almond butter, and make the grain free biscuit or grain free dinner roll.  (both low carb).

For a Gluten Free Option, make the gluten free biscuit.

How or why a biscuit burger? I wanted to keep the ground beef front and center and not go crazy with ten thousand piled high ingredients. Anyone can do that, but a really great burger is executed with balance and just enough toppings to fit into your mouth at once. I hate burgers that fall all over the place and look like a buffet table.

The bacon jam recipe brings it home when it tops  the peanut butter. I’ve made bacon jam here before that was apple heavy and more sweet and sour. This is more onion/bacon flavor. Both are good, but I really wanted a more savory bacon jam for my burger.

Bacon Jam Recipe

Bacon Jam made with shallots, honey, perfect to top a burger, grilled cheese, or a flatbread pizza.
Prep Time15 minutes
Cook Time1 hour
Total Time1 hour 15 minutes
Course: Jam
Cuisine: American
Servings: 6
Author: Angela Roberts


  • 1 pound bacon sliced into two inch slices
  • 2 small granny smith apples peeled, cored, finely chopped (see note)
  • 3 large shallots or 1 medium sweet onion (about 1/2 cup)
  • 3 cloves garlic chopped finely
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper or more as your taste desires
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup


  • Cut bacon into 1 inch pieces. Fry in heavy bottomed pan until crisp. Drain. Save one tablespoon of bacon grease.
  • Add shallots or onions to bacon grease. Soften for a few minutes. Add in garlic.
  • Add apples, cook for a minute. Add in vinegar, brown sugar, cayenne pepper and saute until apples are soft.
  • Add bacon back in until it looks like a compote.
  • Add in apples, shallots or onions, garlic, cayenne pepper, vinegar, brown sugar and saute until apples are soft.
  • Add bacon back in. Add maple syrup and cook down until it looks like a compote, about 45 minutes. I only cooked it very low heat for one hour.
  • Pour off any bacon grease. This part is important.
  • Process in food processor, but not too much. Pulse it and check to see that you can visibly see the bacon, as shown in the picture. Store in refrigerator up to a week.


Note: If when cooking the compote down, it becomes too dry, add in some water.
This is better when left in refrigerator for 24 hours. The flavors meld.
You can substitute apples with peaches or nectarines.
You CAN go sugar free with a low carb brown sugar and Choc Zero's Maple Syrup.

    I will trust you with the taste!! And I’m game for just about any kind of food — I will simply refuse insects and rodents and perhaps a few other things but this combination sounds great to me. Have a great weekend.

  3. Hey Angela, I thought I already commented but guess I didn’t! I love this, it all sounds great. Trying to imagine the peanut butter with worcestershire sauce and mustard with the peanut butter as a savory component! Make one for me please?

  4. Love this burger idea! First of all, I’ve never had an angel biscuit, but I’m totally intrigued. I also love the bacon jam, and the peanut butter seems like such an awesome “secret ingredient.”

  5. This idea is fascinating. I can’t really get my brain wrapped around it, honestly: and by that I mean, I’ve tried to imagine what it might taste like, but, I’m failing. I think I’m just going to have to try it, to find out.

  6. This has got to be one of the most unique recipes I have seen in a long time! It is something I would have never put together, but reading the recipe…it does sound good!

  7. You had me at Bacon Jam but then you threw in a yeast biscuit. YUMMY! I am trying to learn to cook and this will go on the dream list.

  8. WOW! As a 16 year vegetarian, even I AM impressed and intrigued. Though this will never pass my lips, I would love to make it for a unique surprise for my meat eating, bacon LOVING family! Thanks for something new and fun!

  9. It doesn’t sound “crazy” to me. You’re right — it’s about balance and reading your recipe, I think you accomplished that very well. If I was in a restaurant and saw this on the menu, I think I’d have to try it. Well done for the challenge.
