I grew up on supermarket bacon and really didn't think there was much difference.
Now I have a lovely little country butcher down the road from my house and I've been buying my bacon from him because it is absolutely delicious. He was closed over the long weekend so I bought some bacon from the supermarket instead and found it completely flavourless.
I also love that I know that the pigs used for the bacon at my butcher are locally grown.

Is the price a lot different, Belinda?

The middle bacon at my butchers is $12.99 kg so it's not that different to what I pay at the deli at my local coles or woolworths
Hmmmm. Must look into that. Thank you ;-)
by Rice
No it doesn't, unfortunately, Belinda.

I tend to buy from the supermarket when it is super cheap and freeze it to cook with. Great for soups or as a general ingredient.

But for something that highlights the taste, like bacon sandwiches lol... I use our fancy butcher bacon..Always tastes amazing !
That's not a bad idea British!
I love that you call your butcher fancy :)
Crispy bacon sandwiches . . . . . mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Total comfort food... mmmmmm want one now
Me too . . . . and I just h a p p e n to be going to the shops for some sundries. . . . . *whoosh*

British Storm, I make egg & bacon toasted sandwiches. I also have bacon & maple syrup on my pancakes, & sometimes, if I'm home late from a day out, I'll cook egg & bacon, & put it on top of tin baked beans on toast!

Its always better from the butcher.
I completely agree!
I have not set foot in a butchery for more years than I can think of. I don't eat a lot of meat so my bacon is from the supermarket . . . .but I do buy good brands and as natural as I can get. As of today I have not had any bacon for at least three months, so I would be small beans to a butcher.

3 months without bacon!!!! My family loves bacon, it's on our shopping list every single week.
We usually get ours from the supermarket, but I'm sure that the butcher is better. We have a great butcher in town, and he smokes all his own meats, but it does cost a lot more. Therefore its supermarket for me, unless I win Lotto.
Can I win lotto too please :)
We should go in a syndicate!
I only buy my bacon from the butcher because he is priced about the same as the local supermarkets as well. I was surprised at his prices because before we moved out here I'd seen prices much higher at butcher shops
I buy the bacon from the deli section in the supermarket. I don't like the bacon in the packet at the supermarket as it is slimy (or at least what I have tried!) and doesn't seem to taste as good.
That's where I would usually have bought mine as well.
have you tried the maple and hickory smoked bacon they sometimes have? I can't remember if it was coles or woolies I bought it from (quite a while ago)
Butcher. But, I will buy it wherever is most convenient.

Yes, if my butcher is shut it won't stop me buying bacon elsewhere. Bacon is a necessary staple in my house!
As it is at ours, Belinda. ;-)
by Vee
I buy my bacon from the supermarket as we don't have a butcher shop, nor a deli, where I do the food shopping.
by Miro
Supermarkets have good bacon, does your supermarket have a deli section?
I've found butcher prices to be a lot higher than supermarkets so buy from the supermarket.
In the past I've found exactly the same thing, until I moved here I always bought my bacon from the supermarket but since my butcher charges $12.99 per kg for middle bacon and the deli at my coles charges $11.99 per kg I'm happy to pay the extra $1.
Although, it does need to be taken into consideration that my butcher is less than 1km from my home and my nearest supermarket is approx 20 minutes away
I usually buy it from a supermarket, I rarely go to a butcher, unless there is a good wholesale butcher.
do not buy bacon all that much now. Many years ago the best bacon used to be from David Jones In sydney then we ate bacon and enjoyed it
Flaga, bacon & maple syrup on pancakes, is pretty mummy, if/when you feel like buying bacon again!
by Miro
did not know about bacon and maple syrup on pancakes will have to try sounds pretty tasty
