Homemade Omelette with Canadian Bacon and Bread

With its tender and juicy meat and slightly salty and sweet flavor, Canadian bacon makes for a fantastic addition to a great many dishes.

Whether it’s pizza, pancakes, or casseroles, there’s absolutely no dish Canadian bacon can’t improve.

Here are 25 Canadian bacon recipes that will bring back excitement to your meals.

1. Canadian Bacon Egg Cups

I believe that when it comes to food, the flavor is the most important thing.

But it also doesn’t hurt if the food is ridiculously adorable, such as these egg cups.

Admit it, your face lit up as you saw these cups. How can anyone not be charmed by these cuties?

But like I said, there’s nothing more important than flavor. Fortunately, these cups have it. 

They’re made with two slices of Canadian bacon with a sunny-side-up egg in the middle, plus a sprinkle of cheese.

2. Hawaiian Breakfast Omelet

Start your day right by nourishing your body with this healthy omelet! It’s filled with Canadian bacon and sweet and tangy pineapple salsa.

One bite of this dish will whisk you away to the beach.

This omelet comes together in just 10 minutes. I

t’s awesome because who wants to wake up extra early in the morning and slave in the kitchen to make breakfast?

3. Sheet Pan Pizza with Canadian Bacon

Canadian bacon tastes just like ham, so it’s no wonder it tastes great on pizza. 

It also has other toppings such as mushrooms, peppers, olives, mozzarella, and smoked cheddar cheese.

This sheet pan pizza tastes just like it came straight out of an Italian restaurant.

4. Canadian Bacon & Rye Strata

This layered casserole is filled with bread, Canadian bacon, peppers, cheese, and green onions. 

Held together by a mixture of eggs and milk, it’s like strata, quiche, and savory pudding rolled into one.

While strata is typically served for breakfast and brunch, I’m pretty sure no one will oppose if you serve this for lunch or dinner.

5. Pan Crisped Potato Bacon Frittata

Woke up 30 minutes early? Then you definitely have to make this potato bacon frittata. 

With crispy potatoes, sauteed onions, sun-dried tomatoes, and Canadian bacon, this frittata is the winning breakfast.

Sure, it’s delicious, but you’ll also appreciate how filling it is. One serving is more than enough to keep you satisfied until your next meal.

6. Canadian Bacon and Apple Open-Faced Sandwich

The bacon and apple combo isn’t as popular as, say, peanut butter and bananas, but I think it deserves equal attention.

If you like the sweet and salty flavor profile, this open-faced sandwich will be a sure hit. 

Besides the flavor, you’ll also love the textural contrast from the toasty bread, tender bacon, and crunchy apples. 

7. Canadian Bacon Breakfast Quesadillas

Quesadillas are great even with just the tortillas and cheese.

Now, imagine how much more sensational they’ll be if you added Canadian bacon to them!

Sure enough, these quesadillas are beyond glorious. From the toasty tortillas to the melted cheese to the meaty bacon, every component is a winner.

8. Savory Dutch Baby With Asparagus And Canadian Bacon

Let’s be honest, no one really likes asparagus on its own. But that’s fine, because there’s an easy solution, and it’s none other than Canadian bacon.

This recipe makes a savory Dutch baby filled with, as you may have guessed, asparagus and bacon.

But that’s not all. This baby also gets a ton of its flavor from cheese and chives. 

9. Eggs and Canadian Bacon in Pita Pockets

Enjoy the classic combination of eggs and (Canadian) bacon with these pita pockets. 

Throw in avocado slices, cheese, and green onions as well to fatten the pockets and ensure they burst with colors, flavors, and textures.

10. Easy Roasted Sweet Potato and Canadian Bacon Hash

Instead of potatoes and bacon, this hash combines sweet potatoes and Canadian bacon!

You’ll love the combination of sweet and salty here.

Herbs, spices, and seasonings such as scallions, onions, garlic, thyme, and cinnamon lend their aroma and flavor for extra oomph.

11. Bacon Pancakes

There might be nothing new about bacon pancakes, but they sure bring excitement to breakfast.

Beaten egg whites ensure these pancakes are extra tall and fluffy. Bacon bits are incorporated into the batter itself.

This gives the pancakes that wonderful sweet and salty flavor combination. 

12. Eggs Benedict with homemade Hollandaise Sauce

While most eggs Benedict recipes call for ham, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t use Canadian bacon, either.

As they have a similar texture and flavor profile, Canadian bacon tastes just as great in eggs Benedict, the same way ham does.

13. Canadian Bacon Cheese Straws

These straws are crisp and crunchy on the inside and tender with a bit of a chewiness on the inside.

They’re absolutely exploding with flavors from cheese and bacon.

You may not be able to sip drinks with them, but I choose these straws over regular ones any day.

14. Canadian Bacon Broccoli Casserole

Broccoli, cauliflower, parmesan, cheese, and Canadian bacon make up this sensational casserole.

The components are bound together by fluffy eggs, giving you the perfect bite.

Thanks to the richness of the eggs, bacon, and cheese, your kids won’t mind the veggies.

15. Canadian Bacon and Havarti Cheese Sliders with Pesto Glaze

How about an upgrade to your regular ham and cheese sandwich? 

These sliders are filled with Canadian bacon and Havarti cheese. But honestly, they’re not what makes this snack the phenomenon that it is.

It’s the rich pesto topping that does it for me! 

16. Canadian Bacon and Brie Crustless Quiche

This quiche might not have a traditional crust, but that doesn’t make it inferior to others. In fact, I think it’s far better.

Made with fluffy eggs flavored with brie, parmesan, mayo, and pepper, this quiche is undeniably tasty.

Instead of the usual flaky dough crust, this quiche uses a bed of Canadian bacon. Enough said.

17. Egg and Asparagus Breakfast Quesadilla

Ever thought of putting asparagus in a quesadilla? It might not sound enticing, but don’t knock it till you try it.

Filled with Canadian bacon, eggs, asparagus, and cheese, this quesadilla is beyond amazing.

Thanks to the richness of the bacon, eggs, and cheese, you won’t taste that grassy, vegetal flavor of asparagus at all.

All you notice is its wonderful crunch.

18. Eggs Benedict Burger 

Burger for breakfast, anyone? I for one definitely won’t say no to this eggs Benedict burger!

It’s exactly as you imagine it: this sandwich has all the components in an eggs Benedict, but with an added burger patty.

It’s so good, you’ll cry.

19. Canadian Bacon Hash Brown Quiche

This quiche uses crispy hash browns for its crust. I think this idea is genius!

The crust is great, and the filling is equally amazing.

Made with fluffy eggs filled with Canadian bacon and cheese, this quiche is breakfast for the win.

20. Healthy Brunch Wraps with Canadian Bacon and Spinach

If you’re looking to add nutrition to your diet but don’t want boring dishes like salads and green smoothies, these wraps are exactly what you need.

Filled with Canadian bacon, eggs, cheese, and spinach, these tortilla wraps are equally wholesome and toothsome.

21. Canadian Bacon and Cheese Savory Tarts

These savory tarts are filled with Canadian bacon and cheese. These are classic flavors that never disappoint.

With the help of store-bought puff pastry, these tarts come together in just 30 minutes. 

22. Bacon Fried Rice

Why serve regular rice when you can easily cook up a ridiculously flavorful fried rice? 

This one is full of peas, carrots, strips of scrambled eggs, and bits of Canadian bacon! It’s a wonderful way to start the day, indeed.

23. Hawaiian Pizza

If you hate pineapple on pizza, skip ahead. If you love it, just as I do, you have to make this Hawaiian pizza!

Loaded with just pineapple, bacon, and Canadian bacon, this pizza will make your taste buds sing with its sweet and salty taste.

24. Peameal Bacon BLT Sandwich

Fun fact: in Canada, Canadian bacon is also referred to as peameal bacon.

So don’t be confused by the name of this next dish. It’s just a classic BLT, but with Canadian bacon in lieu of the regular kind.

The egg is optional. After all, it’s not in the BLT acronym. It’s still highly recommended, though!

25. Canadian Bacon, Swiss Chard, and Potato Gratin

This next dish is a mix of tender and fluffy potatoes, rich cheese, sweet and salty Canadian ham, and some Swiss chard for roughage.

As it’s loaded with carbs, protein, fat, and veggies, this casserole isn’t just mouthwatering, but is also a complete meal.
