When I was a kid I had something that I thought was bacon for breakfast. It was cut into strips like bacon, and it was kind chewy and tasted like bacon when it's not crispy.

However it was not greasy like bacon. And the fat was dry and crunchy on a small strip along the side. That part of the strip was like a pork rind.

Does anyone know what this is called? Thanks.

Maybe it was thickly cut bacon. Not like the thick slices in the refrigerator case at the grocery store, but thicker.

It seems like it was thicker than regular bacon. Thanks.

I don't know, but I don't think so. It seemed more like bacon or ham.

It could have been bacon, just the slab kind that can be cut to whatever thickness is desired. Sometimes slab bacon still has a definite rind on it which is by nature hard or tough. You are especially likely to see that in a meat market or country store.

There used to be something called Sizzlean. Don't know if that's what you're referring to. Sounds like it kinda. Otherwise, something called pancietta (pan'chet'a) is often cooked like bacon, but I've found it to be less salty. As with any meet, depends on where you get it and how they cure it.

I can't believe I said "meet"... obviously I meant "meat."
