Here's how to turn that salt cured ham into a delicious breakfast bacon. Do not use the ham slice you find in the refrigerated section of your grocery store. You can however, use leftover bone-in baked ham as even the smallest pieces will taste so good (nibblers). A cast iron skillet works best for a true country breakfast. The eggs are optional for this recipe, but if you have never slow cooked your eggs, or never tried them with garlic powder, it's a real treat! Leftover ham is great to chop up and use in green beans or collard greens for dinner.
