Gypsy Bacon

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by littlemafia

Imagine a big Gypsy family sitting around a camp fire. They all hold these sticks in their hands and they're grilling chunks of bacon. It wasn't just the Gypsys who were eating it. Everyone did it. We ate it even at a school camp. It's our version of the American marshmallow on a stick. This kind of bacon can be bought at german ,romanian or hungarian deli .

I have had this many times at camp around the camp fire. We sprinkle seasoned salt on the bacon when it is cooked. I love chewing on the crunchy rind. Oh so yummy.
