Are you starving for meat? Good. These Canadian bacon recipes will satisfy your hunger and make your life better.
Don’t be confused by its name. Canadian bacon does not taste like bacon at all. Rather, it tastes more like ham.
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.

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

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.

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.

Quesadillas are great even with just the tortillas and cheese.

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.

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.

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!
