Maple Bacon Bourbon Jam

Yeah, that’s right. You read that. Maple, Bacon and Bourbon TOGETHER to make a jam.

This may not be sold in stores or a restaurant, but it sure as hell should be. A friend of mine whipped this goodie up and boy IS IT GOOD. I had to make a post about it.

Bacon Bourbon Jam close upClose enough to the monitor yet? I swear if you get a little closer, you may be able to smell its sweet smokey goodness.

It’s the perfect combination of everything you’d want and more. Sweet, salty, and smokey. We first spread it on a plain white cracker- it was good. But then, THEN, we spread some onto a chocolate shortbread cookie. Yup. AND IT WAS DELICIOUS.

You can learn how to make this fanfuckingtastic Maple Bacon Bourbon Jam by visiting my girl’s blog Michelle’s Pop Up Kitchen or by viewing her youtube video here.

Dip & Pita

My friends and I started the night off right at Daddy Jones with an order of their Dip & Pita. The dip is made up of whipped roasted pepper, feta, and heavenly goodness. We each had a glass of white wine to wash it down with and I have to say it paired with the dip pretty darn well. FYI this is a chilled dip- for some odd reason I was expecting it to be warm. It’s still amazing though.

Next we ordered two Mac Daddy’s to share.

You see those pieces of meat? That’s BACON. BACON I TELL YOU. Big chunks of BACON! It’s mixed with sharp cheddar & kaseri, sautéed tomatoes, and elbow macaroni. We each scooped some out onto our pretty little plates (their water glasses are cool too, BTW). It was delicious. Now, as a mac and cheese connoisseur, I have to say that Magoun’s mac tops the Mac Daddy. However, they are both pretty different Macs- different cheeses and topping. Did I mention that this had huge chunks of bacon in it? 😉

Daddy Jones has a nice ambiance to it- relaxing and beautifully lit. Definitely a great date night spot. You can dine with them Mon-Sat at 5PM, Sun- 10AM-12AM. Reservations available by calling or texting 617.690.9095. They are located in Magoun Square Somerville, right across from Magoun Saloon! You can check out their site at http://daddyjonesbar.com/
