Steamed the asparagus,

diced up the canadian bacon

then I mixed it all together and poured it into the puff pastries.
dh is not a big fan of eggs but I think you could have a scrambled egg (or over easy) on the pastry too, then sauce on top.
yum.

Thanks! The cheese sauce recipe really helped.
So I make a butter and flour roux, add some milk and some cheddar cheese.
I'm putting Canadian bacon on my shopping list for tomorrow.

It has always struck me as hilarious that Americans refer to it as Canadian Bacon and here in Canada we just call it back bacon. I guess it is like how North Americans call them French Fries, the British call them Chips and the French call them Pommes Frites (literally it could be taken as fried apples, but Pommes de terre Frites is just too long and cumbersome).

Also, a funny on cheese sauce. When I was young one of my favourite Aunts had the entire family over for a thanksgiving dinner. She was not known for her cooking but this meal was absolutely fabulous and she took all the cudos very graciously. One of the hits was corn in cheese sauce. She said she made it up herself from fresh corn on the cob and her own secret cheese sauce. The "secret" as my sister found out was that the corn (and the rest of the meal were catered and the "cheese sauce" was added by my Aunt.....from a package! Every time I make it from scratch, I think of my dear Aunt Jean!

Anyway, Corazon, your breakie sounds delicious!

I was going to say back bacon, so our Canadian readers would not have to translate in their mind, but I generally don't adopt another country's dialect, even one so close... eh?

Here we call Fries the skinny chips like Maccas sell, and chips are the sort you get from a fish and chip store, ie thick but not as thick as a wedge. Chips here are also the packaged potato crisps. I think the only reason we call any chips "fries" is the imported fast food chains. The local chook stores like Chicken Treat, Red Rooster and Chooks call them chips too.

Don't get me started on the bacon....

I think "Canadian bacon" is different than back bacon though. I've have both and they seem different to me.

Oops, I didn't meant to start something here! Corazon, you have me curious about Canadian and back bacon. I was brought up to think of them as the same thing. I will research this!

Not at all LP. I'm curious too.
I think the difference between the American version of Canadian bacon is they cut off all the fat. It's just a circular piece of pork (first photo) and and back bacon has the fat included and is a strip shape (second photo). Either way, you're right that it is basically the same cut.
