Does the apple bacon relish work without the bacon? If not, what might you suggest instead? Thanks so much.
You could use pancetta or ham or any other salty meat, but if you’re looking to avoid the meat altogether, just sauté the the remaining ingredients in a little olive oil and don’t worry about replacing it with anything.
It’s awesome! I live alone, so I make your recipes and take them to lunch all week. This was an amazing one. I didn’t have the right potatoes to make mashed potatoes though. Just little ones. So I made crashed potatoes with it instead. They were a delicious combo.
Came out great, added to favorites.
The apple/bacon relish was awesome! It went so well with the pork chops and I don’t even like apples. Kids like the bacon the most 😉
Used regular (brown) basalmic. It didn’t look as pretty but it sure tasted and smelled wonderful.
White balsamic makes a difference. This meal was so yummy we were fighting over the leftovers.
The apple bacon relish is so good. My husband wants us to try it on burgers…soon!
