Anybody ever had Turkey Bacon?

I had it for the first time on a BLT yesterday.

Didn’t smell very good after cooked, but not bad in the taste department.

Didn’t appear to be much fat on it, so maybe a healthier alternative to standard bacon, and not awful in the taste department either.

Lol I like turkey bacon. Regular bacon is ofcourse really good and flavourful, but turkey bacon does this trick with probably half the calories right? Guess we can’t have our cake and eat it too :joy:

Yes, I have had it involuntarily. No, I will not voluntarily consume it as it is an insult to both turkeys and real bacon. Bleh.

Lool yea some meat alternatives are kinda unfortunate eh :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: they’re getting pretty good with those beyond meat burgers and stuff tho. Maybe one day we’ll have a bacon pill like the Jetsons

Soy bacon taste pretty fake. Tempeh bacon on the other hand is pretty interesting. It’s made from pressed fermented soybeans.

Oh true haha I imagine someone’s along the course of human history has made it haha :rofl: but yea personally never heard of it and idk why… I’m assuming it’s either too expensive or a cut or a really bad cut or something :thinking:

There’s probably not enough fat on the belly that’s my guess

They at least usually are vegan yes, but some may be just vegetarian
