I will always have a jar of turkey bacon jam on hand. It goes well with practically anything. Bread, sandwiches, eggs, noodles, pasta, rice, etc.
And why make a jam outta turkey bacon, this is because we all know how bad turkey bacon is compared to real bacon, right? So, making a jam sounds logical.
Whenever I need a quick fix in the morning, this is how I would do it. A bit of French cream and cheese, a bit of vegemite, and a whole lotta turkey bacon jam on top of some toasted bread. This is why I always have a jar of turkey bacon jam.
