Salty, smoky bacon is braised with onion, brown sugar, chicken broth, and Espelette pepper, then blended into a sweet-savory jam, in this recipe from Top Chef season 6 finalist Kevin Gillespie. Spread some on a biscuit with eggs for a rib-sticking breakfast sandwich, dollop it atop a bowl of creamy potato soup, or toss it with some charred okra.
