The Best Bacon Butter
- 1 pound bacon, chopped into 1/2 inch sized pieces
- 1/2 cup onions, diced
- 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
- 1 pound butter, room temperature
- 1 tablespoon liquid honey -
- 1/4 cup green onions, thinly sliced and chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper -
In a large skillet, over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp. Remove cooked bacon from skillet and allow to drain on paper towel. Reserve a few tablespoons of bacon fat in your skillet to cook the garlic and onions. Add onions to your hot skillet and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Add garlic and cook for another minute or two. Remove from heat and set aside to allow to cool completely to room temperature.
In a medium sized bowl, using a handheld or stand mixer, whip butter until very soft, about 5 minutes. Add onions, garlic and bacon. Mix until incorporated. Stir in honey, green onions and pepper. Ideally, place into a container with a lid for easy access. This butter can be stored in your refrigerator for at least 1 week. Serve on sandwiches, popcorn, eggs, potatoes or beef or anything else you use butter for.
