Uncured Canadian Bacon at Sam’s!


If you’re heading off to Sam’s today, (it is the Saturday before the Super Bowl after all) then you may find this uncured, nitrite/nitrate-free Canadian bacon from the Rose Packing Co. in the pre-sliced deli meat section. The big, red “UNCURED’ label caught my eye as pushed my cart by, and I picked up a package (just under $10 for 1.5 lbs) for my family. My husband and kids all love meat with their eggs, and this has been a hit! Because it is uncured, I kept it in the fridge for just about a week and then portioned the rest out into servings and froze it. The other night I made an Italian frittata with eggs, almond milk, sauteed kale, onion, and garlic and some of chopped Canadian bacon. I topped it with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and baked it. Even my Anna (she is my “compartmentalized” eater- nothing can be mixed together!) liked it! I hope you are able to find this at your Sam’s Club!

Italian Ham Frittata

  • 9 eggs

  • 1/4 cup almond milk

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion

  • 1/2 cup fresh kale, shredded

  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian herbs

  • 5 slices Canadian bacon, diced

  • freshly grated Parmesan cheese

  • Just a dash of slat  (bacon and cheese add saltiness to it too)

  • Fresh pepper

Saute kale, onion, and garlic over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Whisk eggs, milk, herbs, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Add in veggies and ham and stir until mixed. Pour into an oiled pie plate and top with cheese. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes. I like to turn on the broiler the last few minutes to brown up the top some. Slice and serve warm. We topped it with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt.
