Not Your Father’s Root Beer & Bourbon Glazed Ham

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned Not Your Father’s Root Beer on my blog before – see my Dad and I are pretty wild about it and split one every now and then. So when Dad said he’d like a ham, I immediately (and selflessly, I might add) sacrificed a bottle. Of his, of course, lol! (Fyi: plain old root beer will work in this recipe, too.)

Bourbon Bacon Jam

It wasn’t too long ago that Bacon Jam came on my radar – I can tell you when – the week we featured it on Throwback Thursday, back in July. Well, the recipe looked marvelous, and I used it for inspiration! Thank you, Chef Julianna of Foodie on Board! (You’ve ruined me, btw!!) If you’re cooking burgers or brats on Labor Day, think about serving up this condiment! The best condiment, evah!

Sweet Bourbon Maple Barbecue Sauce

I’m not sure what, exactly, inspired me to go with a Maple Bourbon Barbecue Sauce, but I’m glad I did! See, while I like Maple Syrup ok, the real stuff, I’m not whoo-hoo wild crazy about it and I don’t like bourbon at all.
