The back bacon had a lot more fat than the rashers I enjoyed in England. It was still very tasty.
Quality product, been looking for back bacon British style for a while. Trims well and cooks up nicely, makes a nice fry-up.
Not as good as I expected or as I had hoped for. Lacking in flavor.I have not tried the other items in my order but I’m hoping for a better oitcome
I have read a great deal about back bacon and its use in a bacon butty, but I confess I had no direct experience of it. It was wonderful, and not at all what I expected. For instance, it was not at all like Canadian bacon, or at least what is sold as such in the US. It has a very deep pork flavor, and has a lovely gelatinous fat. I advise sauteeing it gently in a bit of butter, as it can dry out and become hard; also perhaps cover it while it browns; also it is good not to overly render the fat to keep it chewy not brittle. I tried it with worcestershire, hot sauce, and also with mostarda di cremona. I thought this latter might be too strong, but the bacon had such a strong pork flavor, it practically obliterated the strong mustard. Even my wife, who hates guanciale, loved this bacon.
Delicious as always but seemed to have more fat on each rasher.
Everything was great
I had a bacon buttie for breakfast. Took me right back to Scotland.
My mom is from Liverpool England my Dad met her during the war. Until I was 13 I spent all my summer vacations in Liverpool. I have looked my whole life for Black Pudding that tastes like my grandmothers. THIS IS IT!!! Not just the pudding, the back bacon and bangers as well. When I’m cooking it I can close my eyes and I’m back in Grandmas kitchen.
Now that's real bacon. Yummy.
