“This was given to my mom by her best friend who is a southern girl at heart. It is a sweet and savory flavor that you never forget. Try it with a grilled cheese or on scrambled eggs...you can put it on anything!” - by 3RDTIMESACHARM
Original recipe yields 10 servings
- Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels. Crumble bacon when cool.
- Stir tomatoes, sweet onion, sugar, apple cider vinegar, salt, black pepper, and hot sauce together in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly to dissolve sugar. Stir in crumbled bacon and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the spread is very thick, about 1 hour. Adjust salt and black pepper.
- Cool and spoon into a 1-pint glass jar with a lid; keeps refrigerated for 1 week or frozen for 2 months. If freezing, put spread into small jars and let jars thaw in refrigerator overnight before using.

"Oh, WOW, this is FANTASTIC! I halved the recipe, using some beautiful, ripe tomatoes from my dad's garden. I'm now wishing that I made the whole recipe b/c I can't stop eating it, lol. After tasting i..." See moret, my first thought was crackers w/ cream cheese and this on top...AWESOME! I also plan on trying this on hot dogs/smoked sausages and grilled chicken, which I think would be wonderful. When this first started to boil/cook, I was worried b/c the tomato skins were coming off and I thought I should've peeled them first, but once it was all done, everything was 'candied' and you couldn't even tell. Mine took less than an hour to fully thicken, so maybe just keep an eye on it while it's going so it doesn't burn. I will def be making this often...it's super easy and super good~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)"
"YUM YUM YUM! After I saw this recipe this morning, I rushed to the nearest Wal-Mart (30 miles) and got my ingredients. After dinner, I whipped it up and we did the taste test. My husband and brother-..." See morein-law loved it, as did I. The smell at first was a little odd to me, as I'm pregnant, but once it started really cooking down, I found myself tasting it and loving every different stage more and more. I look forward to making more this sunday for my husband to take to the teacher's lounge on monday. I am sure we will get more great reviews then. Thank you for a wonderful recipe. :)"
"So glad I gave this a whirl. I cut back the sugar to 3/4 cup and it is still sweet. Since my bacon wasn't that smokey, I also added a bit of liquid smoke. As it was cooking down, I drizzled some ov..." See moreer grilled zucchini and "Oh MY!" I think I will add some chili powder next time just for my taste and cut back the sugar a little more so it is a little more savory. Thanks for posting the recipe!!!"
