Grilled Peameal Bacon - not just for breakfast anymore
Peameal bacon is actually back bacon that's been brined and coated in corn meal.
Back bacon is that wonderful cut of meat from a boneless pork loin.
And both terms are usually referred to as "Canadian bacon".
Typically cooked in a frying pan and served for breakfast, peameal bacon is now gaining popularity grilled on the BBQ and served on buns for lunch and dinner.
It's also great with just a little oil, salt and pepper rubbed on before grilling too.
I also use this bacon on our Great Canadian gourmet hamburger recipe.
There is a dry rub recipe below but you may also be interested in using the Cajun Seasoning recipe instead.
Serves: 2 - 4
Prep time: 5 minutes
Direct Heat: 400F - 450F
Note: try the letting the rub marinate for 3 hours
Alternatively just cover the peameal slices with a little olive oil, salt and pepper just before grilling.
When the grill reaches cooking temperature place the bacon slices on the grates and close the lid.
Check the slices after 5 - 7 minutes and if showing nice grill marks on the bottom flip them over and cook another 5 - 7 minutes.
If serving with buns consider cheese slices, tomatoes, lettuce and sauces to go with them.
