Chickenfried Canadian Bacon

I really love this stuff! Doesn't get much better than chickenfried, cold smoked Canadian bacon.
Making it over the campfire in a cast iron skillet kicked it up another notch for me. hmmmmmm... I'm a happy girl! lol




I used some of my smokehouse bacon....




Sliced it fairly thick....



Dredged the slices in flour, dipped in an egg/milk wash, then back into the flour....




Then chicken fried in my skillet over the fire....



Fried some hashbrowns and eggs...















Made a pan gravy with the bacon drippings and then toasted some english muffins....




Topped a toasted muffin with the chickenfried canadian bacon, added an egg and poured pan gravy over the whole works....














The outside is nice and crunchy while the center is moist and tender....


Hmmmmmm.... I forgot what I was saying... .......oh yeah. I really liked it! :)

I can't blame you for liking that Jeanie. It sure does look tastey. Breakfast fit for a king, or queen. Or a cowgirl.

cowgirl said...

Mark, I'm thinking I would like just about anything chickenfried. lol Wonder how a thick slice of ham would taste fixed this way?

Not sure about a king or queen, but this little cowgirl was pretty happy with it. lol

Thanks Mark! :)

Big Dude said...

Wow - this looks great. I make my own CB but never thought of chicken fried. You're creative

cowgirl said...

Thank you Big Dude! Hope you give it a try. It works best with cold smoked CB, if it's hot smoked or cooked, it can be a bit dry. Guess a person could just fry it faster..get a quick crust on the outside. It might keep the middle moist. (thinking outloud lol)

Thanks again Big Dude and Thank you for stopping by!! :)

Chicken-fried ham! What a great idea. Our 15 year old daughter stumbled across fried ham at a diner one day. She'd eat it 7 days a week I think.

She also loves chicken fried steak and fried chicken. Chicken fried ham oughta make her day. For about 5 minutes. Then we'll be stupid again...

cowgirl said...

Chicken-fried ham does sound good! I need to make some. :)
This canadian bacon stays nice and moist inside and crispy on the outside.. I bet a hunk of fresh cold smoked ham would be tasty too.

Thanks curmudgeon!

Steve Lewis said...

Hey there! Love your site, I just found it. Where does one go about finding that screen/cooking grid you have there? I need one of those...

cowgirl said...

Hi Steve... Thanks! :)
The grate is homemade. It's a piece of expanded metal with a 1" tubing frame.
It really works out well over the fire, I'm able to move food or pans to the edges to get them off of the heat but still keep them warm.

It measures about 3'x 2'... you can make them any size. I use this one with my tractor rim fire ring.


My horizontal wood burning smoker/cooker also has grates made this same way.

Hope this helps Steve. They are easy to make and last forever.

The middle of the grate does have a section of tubing running across to keep the grate from warping.


Good luck if you make one and thanks again Steve. I appreciate you stopping by!
