Day 76: Dutch Food

What is streaky bacon? Bacon with fat on it? Bacon that streaks when you’re not looking. Sounds so sexy, like Freakin’ Fresh Pizza!

My favorite food isle – Hagel slag. Can you believe how many varieties there are?

Dutch dim sum? Frikendel, croquets, chicken nuggets, bami balls, and dipping sauce.

So much to love about Holland!

    • I think it’s just bacon – and someone in the Netherlands must have just looked up the definition of what American’s call bacon and decided to package and brand it this way. Funny, right?

      From the USDA website: Pork bacon without any other descriptors is raw (uncooked) and must be cooked before eating. Most bacon sold in the United States is “streaky” bacon, long narrow slices cut crosswise from the hog belly that contain veins of pink meat within white fat. Unless otherwise noted, the information in this publication refers to “streaky” bacon.

    • I liked it too. It’s what it looks like to me – I think in Holland they call them snacks. You can get them at a snack bar here, or they come in the frozen food isle as a snack pack or something like that. I think they are typically deep fried, but we don’t have a frier (yet?!?!). In the States, a snack bar would sell chips, candy, sodas, maybe hot dogs and nachos, etc. Here a snack bar reminds me of McDonald’s with french fries and other fried goodies. Hmm…
