I Love Bacon, Do You?

United States

I love bacon so much, but I do not eat it very much. Once in awhile, I will go to Trader Joe's and buy a package of their Black Forest Uncured Bacon. I had a package in the freezer and thawed it this morning. It has been cooked and my townhouse smells so good. Though the photograph makes it look burnt, it is not. That is the darker color of the seasonings used to flavor it. Photo is my own.

I like regular, and turkey bacon....I usually go for the pre-cooked bacon because I don't have to deal with the mess...and it's usually perfectly crispy out of the microwave :) Never tried black forest bacon!

I try to find uncured bacon and ham. It's more expensive, but worth it for me. As well, with this bacon from TJs, I find it is meatier than other bacon I have bought. As far as the mess, most of that comes from us cooking at too high a heat. Always put it in a large COLD skillet. Then, I turn the heat up to about midway on my gas stove. I would do the same with electric. I don't get the spattering, but I do have a spatter screen.

@TheSojourner Well I do know that kind is healthier...but I have to go with what I can afford. Meatier might be good, just personally not a fan of the fat that is on bacon lol! Oh? Well that is good to know! I usually never cook it on a stove myself...if I were to cook raw bacon it'd be in the oven. It's not as messy as on the stove, but could spill the grease if not careful!

That's why I use the uncured TJs Black Forest. Turkey bacon and I just don't do well together. I guess it's better than nothing though LOL

I was going to say yes but not burnt. I stopped buying it due to someone asking me to stop eating pork. I will be going to Amazon right now to put some in my cart if is less than $5

I don't burn mine. I don't like that. This is colored with the ingredients, so it's look is browner. I like mine chewy, never burnt, and certainly NOT limp. ;-)

I love bacon. Last night, I had an Angus burger with Cheddar and bacon, and also had bacon (real bacon) bits in my salad. And, for me, it has to be REAL bacon, not turkey, or that fake meat that people like Bill Gates are trying to persuade us all to eat. In my mind's eye, since the Amish can still eat what they do, stay healthy, and survive, so can I.

The Amish put up barns afterwards! I think if we were as physically active as the Amish, we could also eat whatever we want.

This isn't quite the "proper" British bacon, but it's meatier than most American rashers.

Bacon - YES ! We've done the turkey bacon many a times, but nothing nothing nothing tastes like real bacon. I've been using bacon as an "ingredient" in meals in the past year rather than eating it just like that - like on a baked potato or certain salads. But I love to eat it just like that !

Try the black forest bacon from TJs sometime. Worth every bit. I like it cooked with onions and cabbage. YUMMY.
