Product Profile: Double Smoked Bacon
Bacon is a type of salt-cured pork that usually comes from the pork belly or sometimes back cuts (a leaner cut). Bacon is an extremely versatile product and can be used as the hero/main component of a dish and also as a minor ingredient to add a delicious flavour.
The Boutique Meats Meat Specialists have managed to make a delicious product even more mouth-watering; our famous rashes are double smoked in-house with a beechwood chip.
There are three ways to cook bacon: in the oven, in the fry pan or in the microwave. We recommend using the oven for large quantities as it will deliver fantastically crispy bacon with minimal mess; however, the fry pan method will also deliver perfectly crispy bacon.
Some oven baking tips:
- Make sure your oven is hot!
- Lay your bacon in a single layer – no overlapping.
- For extra crispy bacon, use a metal cooling rack inside your baking tray (elevating the bacon allows the strips to cook from all sides).
The best part about bacon is it can be eaten for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
