    Hey all,

    I made a batch of canadian bacon last weekend and it turned out great. Heres my quandry:

    After smoking and slicing, I had 2 ends from each slab of CB I smoked. I wasn't going to toss them out and I don't have any animals yet, so I vacuum sealed and froze them.

    So, what do y'all do with the end pieces? Mix them with collard greens? Pretend they're jerky?

    I couldn't really find any info on here so I thought I'd just post the question. Moderators can move this if need be.

    Any hints, tips, or recipes would be appreciated as always.

    Chop them up in little pieces, sauté up with some onions and peppers, then add scrambled eggs. 

    Chop them up in little pieces and add to a green salad along with almonds, tomatoes, a little cheese, and raisins or dried cranberries.

    Toss in a blender, add some mayonnaise, lemon or pickle juice, onion, and black pepper.  Pulse a few times, scrap in a bowl, then add some chopped sweet pickles.  Makes a great sandwich spread. 

    Chop in little pieces (I'm seeing a pattern here) and add to a pizza.

    Chop in little pieces, wrap in biscuit or crescent roll dough with a little cheese of your choice.  Bake according to directions. 

    Chop in little pieces, make a white gravy, then add the CB and serve over biscuits.

    I may have to come up with a CB end piece beer since these pieces are like gold.

    I save a bigger end just to make Canadian bacon risotto, and they are always great in potato soup!

    Diced and added to jambalaya, beans, cornbread, breakfast hash, pizza....  any place you would use ham is good.  I always just eat the end cuts. [​IMG]
