Agree. Not a huge fan of bacon but if I'm going to eat it, it must be nitrite free uncured. Few foods are more carcinogenic than cured processed meats.

I find most bacon to be very similar so i usually buy whatever is cheapest.
As for that Canadian back bacon i think MacDonalds is the only one that uses it in their egg McMuffin, i've never seen that particular cut used anywhere else, most Canadians just use regular bacon.
I find those maple flavored bacon has a propensity to burn very quickly if you dont keep a sharp eye on it
Apart from the usual eggs and bacon i like to cut pork loin into medallions and wrap them with a bacon strip,.

Yep, which is why I order it from the link i posted on the first page.
I love any kind of bacon, but since I eat it at least 5-6 days a week, I get the uncured, trate-free, sugar-free stuff.

Speaking of bacon... let's hear it for roasted pork belly!!!!

My favorite bacon is from the Loveless Café outside of Nashville. They also have very good sausage. They have a web site where it can be ordered and shipped.

Best in a sandwich - either as a BLT or with a good bread and ketchup.
Also great in a Full English breakfast with proper English sausages, beans, mushrooms and fried eggs

Yes, English back bacon with fried tomatoes and ketchup in a sandwich. What a great breakfast that is.
You can often pick it up in the "Irish" section of supermarkets.

For our Australian friend posting here: US-style bacon is what is otherwise called "streaky bacon" in many other Anglophone countries.

Best bacon in the world comes from Thielen Meats in Pierz, Minnesota. Martha Stewart reportedly insisted that she continue to recieve her bacon shipments from Thielen's even when she was in prison. We make a run over there a couple times a year and always buy 15 or 20 pounds of their bacon.

Funny bacon story:

I live in Montreal (Canada). I only ever heard of "Canadian bacon" in the decade that I lived in the U.S. When I saw it, I was all "HUH? That looks like HAM! That's not bacon!"

Here in Montreal, when you see "bacon" on the menu, you're not getting "Canadian bacon" -- you're getting "BACON!" (which is your standard, yummy delicious, U.S. bacon )
