Peameal bacon is made from cured boneless pork loin that is rolled in cornmeal before slicing. (Traditionally a pea meal was used instead of cornmeal, hence the name). Unlike regular sliced bacon, peameal bacon is not smoked. Originally hailing from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, peameal bacon can be found in many grocery stores and supermarkets across the country. Toronto's St. Lawrence Market is a common tourist destination for their signature peameal bacon sandwiches.
Prepare using back bacon.
To enjoy a peameal bacon sandwich just like the ones available at the St. Lawrence Market, serve the pan-fried peameal bacon plain on a kaiser roll, or topped with your favourite Heinz Mustard.
Heat greased barbecue to medium heat. Grill peameal bacon slices 2 to 3 min. on each side or until heated through and grill marked on both sides. Top with barbecue sauce as directed. Cook vegetables in pan on a side burner, or in a grill basket, until crisp-tender. Meanwhile, toast buns, cut sides down, on barbecue 1 min. Spread buns with Miracle Whip mixture, then fill as directed.
