    I think I'm going to try this in a BLT roll up...spread bacon butter on lettuce, add more strips bacon, some diced fresh tomato and roll it up.

    I am finding that most bacon has sugar in the ingredients. I thought we are not supposed to have sugar. Can you help

    I tried this recipe. Followed instructions to a t. The end result looks absolutely nothing like that picture. Not even remotely close.
    Tastes good though but I wish it did look like a paste like in that picture.

    I am glad you enjoyed the taste of the butter! This recipe requires at least 30 minutes set up time in the refrigerator for the appropriate consistency. If your butter was melted rather than softened, it may take longer.

    Hi crystal. It's not just the consistency I was referring to. Like I said, I followed instructions to a T so the butter wasn't melted. The resulting color is pale and nowhere, but absolutely nowhere near the color or consistency as shown in the pictures.
    I can see how adding a LOT more tomato paste could change the color to something close to the picture but otherwise I'm pretty sure these instructions and/or amounts are not accurate.
