To kick off the start of the Southern Gay Gourmet, we wanted to share one of our favorite recipes: bacon marmalade. This is something that can be served at any occasion – from a backyard BBQ to a sophisticated cocktail party.
We first had bacon marmalade at a wonderful restaurant in Midtown Atlanta called Empire State South. We DEFINITELY recommend this marmalade paired with a homemade pimiento cheese, on toasted baguette pieces! If you haven’t eaten there, you’re missing out. After searching online for copycat recipes, we finally just took the best parts of all the recipes we found and developed our own recipe.
