Top Chef Sara Bradley's Bacon Onion Jam Recipe

I love Top Chef, so I was over the moon when I found out the show was coming to Kentucky! About a month ago, the Easy Elegance crew hit the road to visit Chef Sara Bradley at her restaurant, Freight House, in Paducah.

Enjoy this sneak peek of the April episode of Easy Elegance with Sara’s recipe for Bacon Jam below! It would be amazing at a Derby party with my Benedictine.
