Used Monk & Butterball

I know it's healthier for me.  I know it is.  But damn, why does turkey bacon have to be so funky and weird. 

It looks like bologna when you put it in a pan.  It smells weird.  

I like my regular old pork belly bacon.  This stuff is a feeble substitute.   I think I prefer to just do without. 

blech!

I don't usually do bacon on the stove/in a pan - too messy. Try doing the turkey bacon in the microwave. I think it's pretty good that way. I mean, it's not *real* bacon, but it's an acceptable substitute. :P

I'll have to try that. Maybe a different brand might be better? Which one do you like?

hmm.

totally pulling a blank on the brand. i could tell you where on the shelf it is at Jewel, but that probably wouldn't help much, now would it? :)

i'm in atlanta right now thru Monday, visiting my family. Once I get back I'll figure out the brand. :P

I personally like the Louis Rich. However, turkey bacon is totally a matter of expectation.
1. Do not eat it expecting it to taste like real bacon. It is not, it is something else that is good. If you expect pork bacon, you will not taste it, be disappointed and thus think it is bad.
2. Do not expect it to "crisp" like real bacon. However, in the microwave it does crisp better than on the stove top.
