Peameal Bacon Sandwich : St Lawrence Market

Peameal bacon, for those not in the know, is Canadian back bacon (not the strip-type; it's round) that's pork loin that has been smoked and rolled in corn meal (which is called "pea" meal because they used to roll the bacon in dried, ground, yellow peas but switched to ground corn meal eons ago).

The most famous location, and preferred, for this classic Canadian food would be Carousel Bakery at the St. Lawrence public market in downtown Toronto. The picture is less than ideal because I was in a hurry to eat the sandwich. That's dijon mustard smeared on the left half. Messy but delicious.

There are a couple of other places that do peameal bacon at the market but I always go to Carousel.

6 bucks each. Tags:
