CHEF’s TIP!

This is a perfect topping for little cheeseburger sliders.


Offer a platter of three shareable sliders and 2 or 3 of these specialty ketchups.


Keep the bacon minced as finely as possible unless it’s going to be added at service.


Larger pieces of bacon will have a noticeable limpness and fatty appearance if they are in the ketchup for more than a few hours.
