I don’t know what it is about bacon, but I LOVE IT. Bacon is partly the reason why I couldn’t completely go vegetarian. You can eat bacon crunchy or a bit soft. Alone, with breakfast, in a sandwich, hugging a roast or a loaf of some sort. Bacon just rules. Ok except maybe maple flavored. But I even tolerated that with some pancakes. To me bacon should be salty. Besides American bacon, I have been lucky enough to find Canadian and Irish bacons as well. And now I can add rind on bacon to that list. Rind on is bacon with the skin still attached and takes longer to cook because it is so thick. I think rind on bacon works better as flavoring in a stew or sauce rather than a breakfast meat.
