“Bacon Jam and cheddar is back at Mad Fox today” read the note alongside a photo of said burger that instilled instant hunger pangs.
There was no discussion– the burger would be inside us in the next few hours.
If you’ve never experienced bacon jam, words alone cannot do it justice. But we can try.
It’s an amalgamation of bacon, onions, brown sugar, spices and other tasty stuff, all cooked down into a gelatinous mix that combines sweet, salty and savory with dashes of pure fucking deliciousness. It’s magical.
With a healthy dollop on top of a cheddar-blanketed patty, the jam infiltrates your mouth with each bite and attacks every taste bud at once. And it’s not so much that it covers up the rest of the flavors– both the bun and the mellowness of the beef do a valiant job at balancing out the bite.
The thing that gets you, though, is the addictiveness of the jam. The second we were done with one mouthful, the next bite was all lined up and ready to go.
Bottom line: a bacon jam burger does not last long on the plate.
