Closeline Candied Bacon

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Have you had a chance to try this in the Pinnacle Grille? It is certainly unique among starters! I thought it was fantastic! I know it isn't on any diet plan, but ya' gotta' step out every now and then! 😁

I tried it and enjoyed it!  Bacon is my second favourite thing, after chocolate.

Bacon is OK on my type 2 diabetes plan.  I'd just have to see if the "candied" part is under 40 grams of carbs.  I'd have no problem making that just my meal and fill-in with diet-allowed veggies!!!!

Looking forward to it 🙂 May have to try it a few times just to be sure it is OK ...

I love Bacon!!  But it has to be very crispy for me.

 

I have eaten chocolate coated bacon.

 

The bacon in the picture doesn't look very crisp.

It isn't. I prefer it crispy, too, but made an exception just this once. 😋

It’s delicious. Looking forward to having it on the Eurodam in 3 weeks.

We had it last month on the Rotterdam.  We both LOVE bacon, we just don't like hanging pieces of limp fat, which is what ours was.  🙄

Mine was fantastic on the Prinsendam,  had it twice, and would have had the third time, but it is incredibly rich.  I love crispy bacon, and it was perfect l

At first I thought this was going to be a comical thread on how to make bacon jerky on your veranda.  

 

It appears that this bacon is served with lemon, dill pickle, and mustard.  Do you eat it with fingers or cut into pieces with knife and fork?  I've had candied bacon from the oven but not from a "clothesline."  Maybe you can request it extra crispy.  Cherie

I too tried the bacon - a gentleman sitting at the next table had the steward bring me a piece from his clothesline.  It was sliced thicker then normal bacon, the maple syrup added to the flavour and of course the presentation isn't something I thought one would see in the PG.

Several of our roll call members had this on the Prinsendam and raved about it.

 

I was not so adventurous (I’m not keen on American bacon - sorry - nor having it over cooked 😉 ) so we stuck with our caviar and other such splurges.

 

But our table mates had tried it on another night and raved about it as well as others.

 

Like sevigny, this was on the Prinsendam.

Nieuw Statendam:  the couple next to my table ordered this item.  The presentation surely is unique and they seemed to enjoy it.  Would what I observed encourage me to order it?  Absolutely not.  It's pretentious.  Healthy?  Certainly not!  Why would I choose to begin to fill my stomach with a breakfast related item prior to enjoying a Pinnacle Grill dinner?

Limp bacon is a sacrilege...

 

Try some cocolate with bacon in it - Like Vosges Haut-Chocolat's "Mo's Bacon Bar" - comes in dark or milk chocolate.  Use that for a s'more - Oh my!!!

Perhaps because it's insanely good based on many comments here? 🤔

 

It's definitely on my list of what I'll be ordering in the PG on our upcoming Oosterdam sailing! 😋

I hope it meets your expectations.  From what I observed, I stand by my previous statements that its presentation is pretentious.

There are only two ways to eat bacon in my book: plain or with lettuce, tomato, and mayo on toast.

No, I have not.  And, I have no intention to do so.  

 

Bacon as starter for a dinner?  Weird in itself.  And, as I have said previously, the entire presentation is pretentious.

Maybe you should open your horizons and try it.

Thank you for your opinions.  Would you be so kind as to respect mine?

We have had this several times the last two weeks  on NADM and loved it every time- likely again tonight before my pork chop.  Not at all pretentious- many restaurants are serving it now. Most use wooden clothes pins to hold it up
