    I think the saddest part about #pipe's post is that I didn't stop to question it. Like, at all.
    I just shrugged, thought "Yeah, that sounds like something that could happen" and continued reading.

    I made bread last night. It was awesome, the first time bread turned out okay. (I think it was because the temperature in my house has improved as temperatures improve, and allows the dough to actually prove).

    And I just had grilled cheese with it, and good god that's an unholy level of delicious.

    Last night I went sort of healthy and made fish tacos with a fresh pineapple slaw.

    Tonight I'm doing pork and bacon gravy over mashed potatoes.

    Woof, this pork gravy turned out well. I'm surprised the bacon flavor didn't overpower the other seasonings. I cheated a little because I used pork gravy packets to provide the thickening and some flavor, but who cares, tastes good.

    Recipe:
    1.5lbs trimmed and rough chopped pork meat (any roast or stew meat will do)
    1 ~8oz package of sliced bacon, diced
    2 pork gravy dry packets
    2tsp diced/crushed garlic
    1.5tsp black pepper
    1.5tsp paprika
    2tsp dried thyme (or 1tbls fresh)
    1/3 cup red wine
    2 cups water
    .5 cups milk

    In a dutch oven, cook the diced bacon until it's crispy, remove from pot. In batches, add the chopped pork to the pot and cook until well browned, remove the pork from the pot and remove most of the drippings/bacon grease (leave like a tablespoon at most.) Return the bacon and pork to the pot with the garlic, add the red wine and deglaze the bottom of the pot. Add the gravy packets, dry seasonings, water, and milk. Stir to combine well, bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and let cook for as many hours as you'd like (1.5hrs minimum I'd say), stirring occasionally and adding milk/water to maintain your desired consistency/to prevent scorching. Serve over mashed potatoes.

    My proportions are all off, my pot sizes were wrong, and the seasoning is bad. I can add salt to the individual bowls as I eat them, but the texture and ratio of pasts to sauce is irreparable.

    I have been given a jar of bacon jam and I am at a loss what to do with it. I try to think of things that it would go with but I'm mostly coming up with cheese/crackers and nothing else.

    Put some in some grilled cheese, that would be good. Or you can use it in conjunction with some burgs.

    I would try it with nutella on a cracker or slice of bread.*

    But then again, I'm crazy and make bad choices.

    Imagine a bacon jam not as jam, but as bacon. Use it where you think a strip of bacon would make something better.

    I can give this a shot.

    My only concern is that the bacon flavor is more potent and will overpower the burger. I don't really do grilled cheese, they don't fill me up at all.

    I guess, but the texture does matter when I comes to real bacon versus the jam. I'll try it on a sandwich this weekend, see how that goes.

    First things first, I'll have to crack open the jar when I get home and taste it plain to get an idea of how strong the flavor is. Then comes the experimentation.

    I finally replaced my dead old crockpot and cooked a chuck roast. So this week I've mostly been eating roast beef on griddle toast with sharp cheddar and brown gravy. I think I'm nearing a threshold of bachelor food, below which lies nothing but Hungry Man dinners and meat in a can.

    A friend of mine is a pastry chef and makes jam

    she made a chipotle onion jam a while ago that is sweet and smoky and sharp and spicy and rich and it is seriously amazing on sandwiches and with cheese and on burgers and a bunch of other stuff.

    It was one pound of meat, half an econo-sized jar of tomato sauce, and a box of pasta shells.
