Just ate (and made) the best fried bread I have ever had

Today I decided to have for dinner some bacon (the american kind). It had been sitting in the fridge for a little while, and it was time. I had just come back from a 4 mile run, and decided to fry no less than eight (8) slices of bacon in what appeared to be a 10" pan.



I like my bacon crispy, and by the time it was done, there was a verifiable 2cm high pool of bubbling lard in the pan. I didn't have the heart to waste it, so I grabbed the closest available sponge: two pieces of "hawaiian" bread. After2 or 3 minutes in the pan, I had two golden-brown slices or coronary bypass.



But it was absolutely delicious.

    Why bother going for a run if you are going to eat that after it?



    And what is "American Bacon"?

    I thought that bacon would be worse, but 8 strips was less than 360 calories. The 360 cals was rated for "cooked tender." I like my bacon crispy. The two pieces of bread were 80 cals each, plus about 90 cals each worth of fat. Maybe a bit more. Either way, with the side of broccoli I ate with it, the total meal was less than 800 calories. Not bad at all.



    American Bacon is in strips. I know the Canadians and Brits have their own, different versions of Bacon.

    Back when I was a 20 year old triathlete - I ate fries with brown gravy, cheese and mayonaise.



    Yum!

    The usual order of fries w/ mayo, which is how I eat them, has more calories than my whole meal that night. Plus, not as much protein, if any.

    "bacon" comes in strips in Canada as well.



    Back bacon and peameal bacon are something different (more resembling ham). I am not sure what's nasty about peameal. Ever had it?

    I assume peameal bacon is what they market to us as "canadian Bacon." They are both pretty good as far as I can tell.
