Grilling Maple Leaf Bacon Portions – Review & Giveaway

Share Button

In our home bacon never goes to waste, if anything I have to watch like a hawk once it’s cooked to make sure the kids don’t scarf it all down. Because of this I was quite intrigued when I heard that Maple Leaf Foods was holding a #NeverWasteBacon campaign.

I had forgotten that some people don’t live with my Baconista daughters and may actually end up wasting some of the bacon if they cook a whole package.

What Are Maple Leaf Bacon Portions

Maple Leaf thinks we should Never Waste Bacon and so they created new Maple Leaf Bacon Portions. With 2 stay fresh packages we can enjoy fresh bacon all the time.


Simply pledge to never waste bacon and you could be one of 10 lucky winners to receive a year’s supply of FREE bacon! As of today 20,530 Canadians have taken the Never Waste Bacon Pledge on Facebook.

The fine folks at Maple Leaf Foods sent me coupons to go and try out the to try new Maple Leaf Bacon Portions for myself. What to make, oh what to make? It would have to be something just for my husband and I for this portion package to make sense. I decided to prepare a lunch item for us to enjoy while the children were at school.

It was actually one of the recipes on the Maple Leaf Pinterest board that inspired me. Just looking at the BBQ Club Sandwich had me feeling hungry so I decided to grill up some chicken and bacon to see what I’d come up with.

BBQ’n Some Bacon

Although I was inclined to open both sections of the Maple Leaf Bacon Portions package, I managed to resist I didn’t even need my scissors to open. There’s a handy peel back section on the package which works well.  I placed the 6 slices in one portion into my handy-dandy little aluminum pan, oh how I wish I had a proper grill pan…sigh.

Honestly, between the sun and the smell from the bacon and chicken on the BBQ this was fixing to be the BEST lunch I’d had in a very long time! My dog was going nuts at my feet as the scent hit her.

Bacon on the grill is super simple, just place it in a BBQ safe pan and cook on medium heat for approximately 20 minutes, turning once.

Beware, the scent of bacon grilling outdoors can bring visitors!!!

Once the chicken and bacon were cooked, I toasted some multi-grain bread and began to assemble our delicious lunch sandwiches. I whipped up some pesto mayo, added some lettuce, chicken and bacon and a masterpiece was born!
