"Canadian bacon" is called back bacon here. It isn't greasy like stripey bacon. It is from the pork loin and has almost no visible fat.
I love crumpets and have decided to make my own as buying them is impossible now. They are so good toasted then top with a slice or two of canadian bacon on the buttered crumpet YUM
the best for breakfast

When you find a recipe you like, please share. I can't remember which crumpet recipe I ended up liking...I'm thinking it was Joy of Cooking, but my JoC is still packed and, even if it weren't, it is at the house in the city.

Here's a link re: the difference b/tween crumpets and English muffins (they are not the same, just like waffles and pancakes are not the same).

TL--I'm not cooking much this week--I will when I get back to the City. The box with JoC in it is one of the first I plan on unpacking. I want to paint the wall where the bookcase goes, first. If I decide to make crumpets, I'll let you know!

Tax Lady,

It is relatively impossible to purchase Canadian Bacon in Spain or Italia.

So, I use French, Spanish or Italian Ham instead ...

Have nice week.
Margi.

Canadian bacon isn't bacon that comes from Canada. It's pork loin that is brined and possibly smoked. It tastes somewhat like ham. It's only Yankees who call it "Canadian bacon". I don't know what it's called in Spanish - Google translate was translating back bacon literally. In Quebec French it is called "bacon de dos" (might called that in France as well). I wouldn't be surprised if you can get it at a Spanish butcher shop or deli, made locally, but with a completely different name.

The point is to have a round piece of meat that tastes a bit like ham.
