National Canadian Bacon Day

National Canadian Bacon Day

There is nothing better for meat lovers than bacon slices! Bacon is the ultimate meat candy and has many dedicated fans. It can be used in sandwiches, on breakfast plates, or even as a pancake!

There are many types of bacon that you can enjoy in various ways, and Canadian bacon is one such.

Because of how it is served, Canadian bacon can be mistaken for ham. This type of meat is made from back bacon and is ready to eat.

Rumours suggest that Canadian bacon was once known as “peameal bacon”. The reason for this is that the ham was first prepared with brine, then rolled in dried yellow peas to extend its shelf life. Its versatility made it very popular, particularly for those in hurry to make a meal.

Canadian bacon can still be cured today, but it’s usually rolled in yellow cornmeal, instead of dried yellow peas. The savory treat’s composition remains unchanged: it is cut from the loin, and served in thick, circular slices. This cut of pork is slightly leaner than regular bacon making it a healthier option for people who are trying to reduce the amount of fat in their diet.

You might get a few confused looks if you ask for Canadian bacon if you visit Canada. It is often called ‘back bacon’ in Canada or simply ‘ham. You would get the same streaky bacon belly slices in Canada if you asked for it in the United States.
