Yesterday I posted my recipe for my Bacon Jam, and got such a great response from my readers that I wanted to share one of the ways in which I use this amazing condiment.
I experimented with my Bacon Jam a lot in the past week, pairing it with various cheeses, meats, breads, and other condiments, and this combo that I am sharing now was by far my favorite.
I love a quesadilla (to me a quesadilla is anything made in a flour tortilla which has been folded in half and then grilled to crunchy tortilla perfection). Classically, it’s a Mexican dish, with Mexican fillings, but today my quesadilla took a little trip to France and Italy where it met up with some shredded Gruyere Cheese and some paper thin sliced Prosciutto San Daniele…..and of course was rounded out with my Bacon Jam.
Let me just say that this might be one of my favorite flavor combinations of all time. I think Prosciutto is the best cured meat ever created (you can quote me on that)…and the combination of Prosciutto and Gruyere is one of my favorite meat/cheese combos of all time….so layering that with the element of a sweet and salty bacon jam sandwiched in between a perfectly thin crisp tortilla just literally sent my taste buds into the stratosphere.
I tried this same sandwich with Ham instead of Prosciutto, which was good, but the Prosciutto was definitely the winner hands down!
