Matty Matheson's Bacon Onion Jam
From renowned Canadian Chef, Matty Matheson - here's his recipe for a slow-cooked combination of pasture raised bacon, onions, vinegar, butter and sugar to top your burgers or favorite grass fed beef cuts. We've made this many times and love it - hope you will, too.
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Servings: 6-8



  1. In a large heavy-bottomed pot set over medium heat, render the bacon.
  2. Add the butter and onions.
  3. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally about 90 minutes.
  4. Add the vinegar and sugar to the pot and cook 15 more minutes. Remove from heat.
  5. Let cool and place in container and store in the fridge til you're ready to top your Red House Ranch House Blend burgers with jam.

Note - Here at the farm we eat a largely Keto diet and do not add the sugar in this recipe. 4 pounds of carmelized onions are pretty sweet all on their own. We suggest adding sugar or a tablespoon of Maple Syrup at the end to sweeten to your taste if necessary.
