LOOKING for: Paprika bacon?

Posted by spyro (My Page) on

Mu husband brought home a 1# slab piece of paprika bacon from someone at work.

I very slightly remember my mom using this when I was very young, but can't remember for what, or if she just used it as regular bacon.
I googled and came up with nothing but a place to buy it, and a photo of excatly what I have.
Has anyone else ever used this? Do I use it as I would regular bacon, or do I bake it?
Appreciate any help. It looks really delcious.

It's "fully cooked" if you like white flabby bacon....
I like to fry it crisp.

I'm going to try it (thin)on bread cold, then fry some. Might as well try it both ways.

Thanks. I had no idea it wasn't like raw bacon.

We get pepper bacon here and it is just regular bacon that you would cook just like any other bacon. We also have a wonderful Opa's Peppered Ham that I buy and keep in the freezer all the time.......my husband says it is so good all it needs is warming up.

Ahh yes, Paprika Bacon. My Grandparents came here on the boat and brought their recipe with them. It is one of my favorite foods. It can be eaten right out of the package, as it is fuly cooked, even though it looks raw. It can also be fried crispt, which is also great. Here, try this recipe...........One or two pound slab bacon, boil it with 3 to 4 cloves of garlic, after boiling it for about 25 to 30 minutes, let it rest, then stab it with a fork, with the rind left on. Then sprinkle your Hungarian Paprika liberally all oveer both sides. Slice, and place slices in white butcher paper, if you have any. Put in fridge for 2 to 3 days. OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you, John, for posting the how to make paprika bacon. As a child, I remember my mother buying this from our Hungarian butcher. We never fried it. We would just slice pieces of it real thin, dunk them it a little salt, pepper and additional paprika mixture we would have on our individual plates, and enjoy it with a wonderful rye bread.

I remember my grandmother and mother always making this at Easter. They always boiled it for about a half hour to 45 minutes. BEing I didn't want to go through all of that this year, I bought a piece from a local Polish Deli. It didn't seem to have the amount of paprika that I desired. So with that I boiled it for 20 minutes, just enough to get it warm and moist enough to hold the paprika on. It was the most delicious piece of paprika bacon that I have ever tasted! Fried the leftovers with eggs for breakfast.
