    What do you all call this?

    Do you just call it bacon? Or something else, like the Quarter Pounder in France :D?

    Hey- I made eggs Benedict last weekend with that stuff. Does it come from Canada?

    I've heard it called 'back bacon', to distinguish it from the usual 'belly bacon' that comes in strips that curl up and go crispy when cooked. The good stuff is 97% fat free, and the bad stuff is 97% fat. :)

    If the question is answered 60% correct... is it Canadian...

    And if you get 66% on a set of questions... does that make you a Doctor in some places...

    :D

    Darn it...


    Now someone is gonna say it was influenced by the tequila...



    :D

    You have that kind of backwards, eh?

    So it's still "canadian bacon"?

    I was expecting replies from (the people who I've noticed are Canadian):
    1. Tideland
    2. Hyo
    3. jayman
    4. moner

    Actually, it can be considered half a sandwich.

    I don't think our wonderful neighbors to the north really care about fat content. Consider this:

    Hey... we gotta keep our fat somehow... all this hunting and cold weather :D

    I was joking but then again I think I have heard Canadian bacon once in a while in a radio ad. I never really noticed since I don't eat bacon often and if I do, I prefer the strips (as much fat removed as possible!)


    C'mon.. there's more than 4 Canadians on this site!

    Either way, a pig is an awfully delicious animal. I like to think of bacon (in either form) as "meat candy".

    The package is Back Bacon, and, the *BEST* poutine to be had is in either Warwick or Drummondville, in Quebec.

    If you visit Montreal, Lafleur's, and Quebec city, Ashtin.

    Now you tell me after I visited Montreal haha. At least I tried the smoke meat sandwich. God that was good.

    If we're allowed to have American cheese that's only barely cheese then I guess they should be allowed to have Canadian bacon that's only vaguely related to bacon.

    I sure like poutine, eh! Unforunately there aren't any good poutines out here in the middle / western area.

    Back bacon is good on pizza, otherwise I don't really eat it. My favorite Canadian dish is the Big Mac LOL j/k.

    Poutine is probably healthier.

    A more healthful regional delicacy is something called a beaver tail.
