Streaky bacon (sometimes called side bacon) is often used as a means to add flavour and keep the exterior of meats like chicken and turkey moist. The thicker rashers of streaky bacon add plenty of flavour due to the additional fat running through the meat, preventing drying out after longer cooking times. Americans prefer streaky bacon, as such you will usually see this slightly fatter bacon in many everyday US recipes, in England we typically only use streaky bacon rashers in breakfast dishes such as crispy bacon pancakes or as part of a fry up.
British back bacon, on the other hand, is considerably higher in meat content, with a thin rind of fat following down one side. In the US our traditional rashers are known as Canadian Bacon, whilst not uncommon you will have to ask for this specifically if you are ever across the pond. Ordinarily we serve smoked back bacon, which gives an additional flavour through smoked wood shavings. Some people can find this smoky flavour overwhelming for their purposes so for those we also carry unsmoked back bacon, ideal if you prefer to make your own bacon rub seasoning for your meals, enabling you to tailor the meat to your taste. For those looking for a premium British bacon we also offer our smoked Ayrshire streaky bacon, produced in Scotland by heritage producers using free range pigs selected by farmers for the best quality meat, then smoked to enhance the excellent flavour to create a great breakfast treat.
When it comes to cooking bacon there are a number of fantastic bacon recipes suitable for anyone. When creating an English breakfast you will want to stick to your English back bacon, however, if you are creating an American inspired dish your best bet is to pair it with streaky bacon one great example is bacon pancakes with maple syrup for a sweet breakfast treat. What bacon to use will also come down to personal taste, when creating a signature BLT many recipes call on streaky bacon as the extra fat will deliver a more flavourful sandwich, but if you want a slightly leaner BLT just opt to add in some British back bacon instead.
