Dinners around here can be hectic at times. With two boys busy with school and sports I try to plan ahead so we can have meals full of protein that taste delicious. I want something that everyone will enjoy and tastes just as great as leftovers (if there are any). This recipe was created out of my love for duBreton Organic Bacon and its fantastic flavour. Unlike the bacon I’ve purchased previously that is full of fat and had very little meat, duBreton bacon is the perfect amount of both to create bacon that is fantastic for a variety of recipes.

If you love bacon then you must try duBreton Bacon – it’s raised crate-free and is certified humane (i.e. animal treatment/animal welfare, ethical production; raised without antibiotics; vegetarian diet etc). Plus, duBreton has made a commitment to raising 300,000 pigs crate-free by 2018 – isn’t that incredible?
To learn more about bacon fans, duBreton surveyed Canadians and found some interesting statistics about their bacon preferences. Did you know that more than 90% of Canadians enjoy bacon? And, of those surveyed 80% prefer bacon cooked all the way through, crispy and able to pick up and eat with your hands while 6% of us want our bacon to be soft and chewy, barely touching the pan. Unbelievably, 5% of respondents love bacon really cooked, charred and crumbly to the touch. However you like it, I know that you will love naturally smoked duBreton premium bacon with generous, thick and meaty slices and no added nitrites or nitrates. Perfect for eating as a side or incorporating into your favourite recipes.

* The survey was commissioned by duBreton through MARU/VCR+C from June 15 to June 16, 2016 as an online survey among 1,503 randomly selected Canadians. The margin of error—which measures sampling variability—is +/-2.53%, 19 times out of 20. The results have been statistically weighted according to the most current education, age, gender and region Census data to ensure samples are representative of the Canadian adult population. The survey terminated responses from Canadians that indicated they don’t eat bacon (1.a.) or only eat vegetarian or poultry-based bacon (1.b.).
