 This Jack Daniels Glaze recipe is sweet, peppery and packed with flavor!

This is one of my all time favorite sauces.  The thick, syrupy glaze goes great with so many things — steaks, chops and burgers.

I especially love it on these Whiskey Burgers with Candied Peppered Bacon.

I got the idea for this sauce from a bottle of bourbon glaze that I found in a home party catalog.  After many test batches, I found a recipe that tastes just like original.  The only difference is, I substituted whiskey for the bourbon.

This sauce keeps very well, so I always make a double or triple batch.  This way, I always have it on hand.

If you’re planning to use this sauce on the grill, make sure you add it during the final few minutes of grilling.  Otherwise, the sauce will burn. Or, you could always add it just before serving.
