At risk of offending the nomenclature police, this is now known as Sweet Pickled Boneless Pork Loin, or something close, but if you labelled it as such, you would confuse everyone and when you travel in the southern States, this is considered “Canadian Bacon”.
We just think of it as normal country breakfast, or lunch if you rise late! One of our customers last week asked me why our bacon doesn’t give off a lot of “pan juice”. This answer is that it’s not “tumbled” or “seasoned”, a manufacturing process whereby the meat gains weight (mostly water) and then loses it in the pan, and only after you’ve paid for it! Our doesn’t, and it’s well-trimmed, as a bonus.
PEAMEAL BACON BLT
8 slices peameal bacon, bunch of arugula leaves, 1 tomato – sliced, pumpernickel bread, olive oil.
Preheat grill to medium high. Grill sliced peameal bacon until just cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Lightly brush each slice of bread with olive oil and grill for 1 minute per side. Layer bread between 2 pieces of grilled bread: a few arugula leaves, 2 slices of peameal bacon and a few tomato slices. Cut sandwich in half and enjoy!
