4 slices of double smoked bacon

1 shallot, minced

Dash of sherry vinegar

½ cup chicken stock

3 tablespoons butter


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  2. Place bacon on baking sheet and cook until crispy. Remove from oven and reserve fat separately. In a medium sauté pan, add one to two tablespoons of bacon fat. Sauté shallots in fat.
