Sending the Bacon Back

Carousel bakery peameal bacon
Last week, I threw my health to the wind and went to St. Lawrence Market to try Carousel Bakery's world famous peameal bacon sandwich. Frankly, I was kind of disappointed. For those who who haven't seen it before, this heart attack in a bun is pretty much just a stack of unsmoked back bacon rolled in cornmeal on, well...a bun. The bacon was tender and the bun was soft, as you'd expect, but overall the sandwich was bland, as peameal bacon doesn't have much of taste to it (or at least I don't think it does).

Well, that's one de facto Canadian dish down. Next up: beaver tails.
