It is a real thing and it is absolutely delicious. You can add it on toast, warm cheese, burgers or simply by itself!


  • 2 pounds of Bacon (thick cut)
  • 1 1/2 cups of chopped onion
  • 2 1/2 tbs garlic paste or 3 cloves of fresh garlic
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar

  • 2 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water

Note: You can also add a bit of cayenne red pepper if you enjoy a more spicy taste or a few tablespoons or maple syrup. 


  1. Start by cutting the bacon into 3/4 inch pieces. Cook until crisp while stirring frequently. 
  2. Drain the grease but keep about 1/2 tablespoon of bacon grease.
  3. Add in the onions and cook for about 6 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes.
