Skillet Bacon Jam Meat and Beans

          I was sent a small sample jar of Skillet Bacon Jam and I know right away that I will enjoy using it in my recipes.  Perfect for all bacon lovers (like me) who are trying to cook low fat and healthy.  It has all the goodness of real bacon with a delectable, smoky and tangy twist.  Made in Seattle, WA, Bacon Jam contains only real ingredients such as uncured bacon (no nitrates added), onions, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, water, salt and pepper.   That’s why I’m confident of using it my recipes.  For more info on Bacon Jam, visit or contact
      This Bacon Jam Meat and Beans recipe is so versatile, you can serve it over cooked rice, with Garlic Bread or Potatoes and even pasta.  My kids love it with corn chips. A healthy dip to have on hand and it also freezes well.  Oh, did I mention that it’s loaded with veggies too 🙂
