So, what is back bacon?

Back bacon, also known as Canadian bacon, is a type of bacon made from the back of the pig. It is typically leaner than other types of bacon and has a distinct meaty flavor. Back bacon is often sold in round slices and is a popular breakfast meat in North America, especially in Canada where it is a staple in the traditional breakfast dish "eggs Benedict". It can be pan-fried or grilled and is a versatile ingredient in many recipes, adding a rich, smoky flavor to dishes like quiches, sandwiches, and soups. Its unique texture and taste make it a favorite among bacon-lovers looking for a healthier option.
