This bacon jam recipe puts a fun twist on a grilled cheese that is anything but traditional. Created by food blogger Jessica from How Sweet It Is, the Havarti and Arugula Grilled Cheese comes with a smoky, homemade bacon spread as well as triple herb butter that's also from scratch. This is not your standard lunch.

To try this bacon jam recipe on your own, you will need yummy ingredients including chopped bacon, sliced onion, smoked paprika, bourbon and low-sodium chicken stock. The triple herb butter requires basil, oregano and thyme plus unsalted butter and salt. The rest of the sandwich calls for thick slices of either Italian or ciabatta bread, sliced havarti cheese and baby arugula leaves.

While this bacon jam went on a fancy grilled cheese, you can seriously put it on anything.
