Having these two back to back, why America, why?

Why do you have these thin streaks that are cooked until they burn?

Is there a legit reason for this?

Bacon is just cured cuts of pork, there is no right or wrong. American bacon is traditionally from the pork belly so that's why it looks like that

I’m not going to let this fly. I just spent like 3 weeks in London and I had plenty of that kind of Crispy bacon in the bottom right picture. The meal wasn’t even labeled as American style.

Also, good bacon in America is not that burned mess. It should still be somewhat jerky/chewy.

Isn't it really British bacon vs bacon in the rest of the world?

At least in Germany, we're used to US bacon. I don't like British ham stuff bacon...

Both are good and have their place. UK style works well when it's the primary component of what you're eating (like eggs Benedict), US style when it's just there to give some taste (like in a hamburger).

What you mean is, UK Bacon is so tasty it can be all you have and it's amazing:
(p.s. just ate this goddamn)

Whereas US Bacon can take a $15 Burger and be the worst part about it:


Why would anyone want to add burntness to their meal?
I was given bacon and eggs and it was just eggs with a side of crispy.

American bacon is literally garbage. Totally wasted meat, disgusting.

Also, "that's ham" has to be the most annoying response ever. No it isn't. It's literally bacon. Ham is a different thing.
