Lamb Bacon

A recent article on the web site Tasting Table New York describes lamb bacon as "the hottest new belly in town". Sounds interesting, doesn't it? Has anyone tried it? Is it available in Toronto yet?

  1. Also wondering about this, actually posted on Home Cooking for a recipe. But hanging charcuterie will test my wife's patience, would be great to buy it/try it here in Toronto.

    1. Try calling the Healthy Butcher. I know that they carry beef bacon, so perhaps they've caught on to this lamb abcon craze as well...

        1. 5 years later and I'm just getting on the boat. Has anyone found lamb bacon in Toronto yet?

            Yes, at the Brickworks Farmer's Market on Saturday.

              For additional clarity

              The vendor is Buschbeck Farms, they sell mostly lamb cuts and sometimes some beef.

              The lamb bacon comes in a vac pack and it's not in orderly rashers like grocery store pork bacon. They usually have a few packs and often sell out of it, get there early. All of their lamb is fantastic stuff, in addition to bacon and the usual lamb cuts they also sell smoked lamb leg steaks (like lamb ham, or kassler). Last week we bought some marinated shoulder chops from them, since shoulder chops can be a bit of a gnarly cut I cooked them sous vide for a longish time then just showed them to the fire on the gas grill and they were super.

                  I was about to post saying that Buschbecks carries lamb bacon. I know they don't always have it but I've seen them post on their twitter feed @Buschbeckfarm if they are going to have it that week.

                  I've bought quite a bit of stuff from them and I really find that both their beef and lamb are really good!

            2. Lamb Bacon is available every Saturday at the Brickworks market at Buschbeck Farm
