This is great for a brunch or holiday breakfast side with friends and/or family…Bacon Jam Bruschetta with Apple Slaw
1 lb thick-cut bacon, diced
2 cups onions, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup brewed coffee
1/2 tbs Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tbs fresh sage, chopped
2 Granny Smith apples, julienned
1 tbs apple cider vinegar
1 tbs maple syrup
1/8 tsp Chinese five spice
1 baguette, sliced on a bias into about 24 slices & toasted
To make the bacon jam: cook the bacon in a medium-size skillet over medium heat until browned, about 20–25 min. Add the onions and cook until they’re translucent and slightly browned, about 10 min. Add the garlic and sauté for two more min. Spoon out 1/2–3/4 cup of bacon fat from the pan and discard. Add the brown sugar, maple syrup, balsamic vinegar, and coffee to the skillet. Bring the mixture to a simmer and reduce for about 10–15 min, until it becomes syrupy. Finally, stir in the Dijon mustard, salt, pepper, and sage. Remove the pan from the heat and bring to room temperature. Process the cooled mixture in a food processor until there are small chunks and it’s a spreadable consistency.
To make the apple slaw: toss all ingredients in a small bowl. Use immediately.
To prepare the bruschetta: spread about one tbs of the bacon jam on each slice of baguette. Top the bacon jam with a generous pinch of the apple slaw and serve. Makes 24 slices
