Bruschetta With Bacon Marmalade & Brie Recipe

Bruschetta With Bacon Jam And Brie Recipe
Featuring a range of flavor adventures from tangy citrus marmalade to a dash of sweet maple syrup.

What makes a marmalade marmalade? The answer lies within the type of fruit used. While a marmalade is prepared similarly to jam by simmering down fruits and leaving bits remaining. The main difference is that marmalade is specifically made from citrus- usually from bitter oranges. This lends a particularly enticing flavor to savory dishes.

For this recipe, we used Boonville Citrus & Chile Marmalade. We amped it up with smoked bacon, cajun spices, and sweet maple syrup. Topped upon a crispy slice of sourdough and co-mingled with melted brie, the flavor combination is the perfect start to any course.


  • Sourdough Baguette

  • Brie Cheese

  • Thyme

  • Drizzle of Olive Oil

Bacon Marmalade:

  • ½ lb. Smoked Bacon

  • 2 Shallots - finely diced

  • 2 Garlic Cloves

  • 1 TBSP Dijon

  • 1 TBSP Boonville Citrus & Chile Marmalade

  • 1 TBSP Brown Sugar

  • 1 TBSP Ghee

  • 2 TBSP Maple Syrup

  • 1 TBSP Lemon Juice

  • 1 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar

  • 2 tsp Cajun Seasoning


1. Chop the bacon and cook over medium heat until it is mostly cooked. Drain, reserving 2 TBSP of the grease for the marmalade mixture.

2. Combine dijon, marmalade, brown sugar, maple syrup, lemon juice, vinegar, cajun spices, butter and bacon grease in a small mixing bowl and mix thoroughly.

3. Sauté the garlic and shallots over medium heat for 1-2 minutes. Add the bacon and marmalade mixture to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes stirring frequently so it does not burn to the pan.

4. Slice the baguette on a bias and arrange on a baking sheet. Give a drizzle of olive oil and toast in a preheated oven at 425 degrees for 8 minutes.

5. Slice brie and arrange on each crostini. Bake for 2 minutes or until cheese is gently melted. Top with bacon marmalade and garnish with fresh thyme.
