mmmm, I'll try but what we really need is someone who has cooked in Britain and America. First off Canadian bacon is not streaky bacon to the best of my knowledge. I may be wrong but am not uncertain. streaky bacon from what I have seen on various English cooking shows is actually more like American thin cut bacon. Cooks like it and may even taste like it, I wouldn't know, haven't eaten it. While Lardons (not sure of the spelling) look more like our Thick cut bacon and I mean THICK or our bits and ends. It has a lot of fat and is used in small chopped cubes or bits as a beginning to sauces or soups, think German potato salad.
as I said, I may be wrong but feel that is a pretty accurate description. Anyone that knows for sure, please feel free to correct me:D
