How To Use Cheddars Bourbon Glaze?

Bourbon Glaze Salmon

Before baking or grilling your favorite meat or fish, brush on this bourbon glaze, but be careful—it’s a sugar-based sauce and can burn easily at higher temperatures.

My preferred method of using it is to paint it on the meat while it cooks to add more layers. This glaze goes perfectly with main dishes like homemade hamburgers, grilled chicken, or grilled steak. But you can also use it to coat grilled corn on the cob!

In The Fridge: In an airtight jar or container, the bourbon glaze can be kept in your refrigerator for up to three months.
In The Freezer: This bourbon glaze can, in fact, be frozen for up to six months.
