Not exclusively from the northern country, Canadian bacon is a very popular breakfast food item in the United States and Canada. It is made from pork and is much thicker and lower in fat than more common slices of bacon. Canadian bacon is used in several recipes and can be paired with a variety of foods. One of the most common ways to cook this food is in a pan on a stove top. Doing so allows the bacon to be ready in a matter of minutes, and there is very little guesswork involved in cooking it successfully.
