Cranberry Aioli with Citrus and Herbs

Cranberry Aioli with Citrus and Herbs

This recipe comes to us courtesy of Chef Mike Garaghty from Wusthof. During our Annual Knife Event last weekend, he carved a turkey (and made it look effortless) and made roast turkey sliders. The accompanying sauce was the recipe you’ll find below. It’s super simple but well received.

Did you attend the Knife Event? Did you get to sample a turkey slider? Did you try the sauce? Tell us below!

Savory-ish Bacon Jam

Savory-ish Bacon Jam

For those of us who prefer savory pancakes, waffles, and French toast, this recipe will likely satisfy. It’s easy to make even if it’s a bit time consuming (about an hour from start to finish). It pairs well with a cream cheese spread (whip softened cream cheese with heavy whipping cream until easily spreadable). Best served warm or, at the very least, room temperature. Oddly, some people enjoy this on a peanut butter sandwich.

However you choose to eat it, we hope you like it.

Instructions
  1. Cut the bacon into 1/2" slices and add to a large frying pan. The bacon pieces will separate as they cook. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring, frequently until the bacon is cooked but not super crispy. A few crispy bits are fine.
  2. Remove the bacon from the pan with a slotted spoon and set it aside. Pour out all but about 1-2 tablespoons of the drippings and reserve for another use.
  3. Add the onions to the pan and cook for about 10 minutes then reduce the heat to low. Add the sugar and stir well. Continue to cook until the onions have caramelized, about 20+ minutes. Add the espresso (or coffee) and the bacon and increase the heat back up to medium. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally until thick and jam-like, about 30 minutes
  4. Remove from the heat and stir the balsamic through adding more to suit your taste. Add salt if desired. For a uniform consistency, put it in your food processor and pulse until you are happy with the result.
