Bacon Jam and Brie Tarts

I am a very organized person – I keep an inventory of my pantry, freezers, etc. on my phone. But sometimes I’m *still* surprised by what I find! A few days ago, I found a jar of bacon jam in the pantry. I thought, “What on earth did I buy this for? What was I planning to make with this?” So, I decided to do some online searching for recipes using bacon jam. I came across one on the Wry Toast blog, but it had instructions to *make* bacon jam (which I already had!), so I just adapted their method using my store-bought bacon jam. I ended up taking these to a friend’s house, and they were so popular that my friend asked me to bring these to the next party! These are soooo tasty! Enjoy!
