If you haven’t had the Canadian Bacon at Benjamin Prime then National Bacon Day is the perfect reason to stop in and try it. These massive “slices” of Canadian bacon are cut extra thick and served sizzling on a platter. Each bite is so juicy that you don’t even need a dipping sauce. If you’re looking for an additional side or appetizer to pair with these decadent pieces of pork, the lobster mac and cheese and the baked clams are worthy options.
