Huge fan of Bacon… Naturally a bacon BLT is just classic. Though this recipe has a lovely twist with the bun, also shows you how to make your bacon from a hunk of pork belly…

Tony Meets Meat

Bacon is something almost everyone loves. I use tons of bacon for my creations and I can’t seem to get enough. I have been wanting to try and make my own bacon for quite a while so it was time to get on it. I bought a hunk of pork belly that was about 4 1/4 lbs. 2016-06-09 16.50.34

It had the skin on so the first step was to remove the skin. I started slowly at one corner and gently peeled the skin back cutting it away from the meat as I went. I was able to get it off in one piece! I am freezing the skin to make cracklins or chicharrones another day. After removing almost 3/4 lb of skin, I ended up with about 3 1/2 lbs of nice bacon makin’ belly. I was very pleased with the meat/fat ratio on this belly. It looks fantastic.2016-06-09 16.58.09
