WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - It might look as if Chef Chris Manning kept things standard with hot dogs and hamburgers, but it's what he puts on the dogs and burgers that make it special.

It's called Bacon Jam and it's a tasty way to liven up your cookout. It's also great with steaks and chops.

You can see for yourself in the video.

Bacon Jam

- 2 tablespoons butter

- 2 cups minced onions

- 2 cups finely chopped cooked bacon

- 4 cloves garlic, minced

- 1/4 cup brown sugar

- 1/4 cup maple syrup

- 1/4 cup cider vinegar

- Salt & pepper to taste

Cook onions in butter in a medium-size sauce pan on medium heat until onions begin to wilt.

Add bacon and garlic. Cook for about a minute, then add brown sugar, maple syrup, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Cook on low heat until mixture is thick and syrupy.

Use as is or allow to cool, then pulse in a food processor until it's a smooth jam consistency.

Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
