Calories Per Serving


  • 3-4 Tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon curry powder
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 8 Ounces thinly sliced Canadian bacon or smoked ham
  • Parsley sprigs


Mix sugar and curry powder in a small bowl.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat until hot.

Reduce heat to low and add butter.

When butter is melted and starting to brown a little, stir in sugar mixture and 2 tablespoons water. (Be careful of splatters.)

Stir to dissolve sugar; boil until thickened to a light glaze, about 2 minutes.

Add the Canadian bacon in a single layer; turn to coat with the sugar mixture.

When heated through, about 2 minutes, remove to a warm plate.

Garnish with parsley; serve right away.
