The rind description sounds like the salt pork that's sold sliced like bacon, but in shorter pieces.

What you are describing sounds like the bacon I buy from a local smokehouse. It has a totally different texture than the commercially sold bacon you buy in the grocery. When it cooks, it's all crisp - no chewy fat. The edges have a rind-like texture and taste to them. Perhaps you were just lucky enough to get fresh home-style bacon.

I guess we should have asked wheter it was just salty or had the sweetness found in most bacon, because it could have been fried fatback or streak o' lean.

I agree that it is Sizzlean. I remember this from back in the 80's. Not as good as yummy bacon though, but I am sure better for you! Can't live without my bacon though. LOL

Probably. The edge (or rind) was kind of tough. The meat was neither fat or salty like bacon is. I get the feeling true bacon lovers might not have liked it as much as I did.

I suggest you join the bacon of the month club and eat bacon until you find your childhood bacon love. LOL Yes, there really is a Bacon of the Month club and no, I don't belong LOL You probably had Canadian bacon and it was just cut up instead of round.

Thumbs up Bringing Home The Bacon

I love bacon. I'll take hickory-smoked bacon. I'll have it crispy. Or thick-sliced -- it's a great taste. And I even love pepper bacon!! Yes. It's the bomb.
