What's the deal with Turkey Bacon?


Quote  |  Reply

Just wondering if there are any recent recommendations for a tasty brand of turkey bacon - looking for a smokey flavored crunchy healthy option.  Any suggestions?

The deal with turkey bacon is that it's amazing. I buy mine from Trader Joe's, it's uncured lean turkey bacon (no added sodium or nitrates), and crisps up nicely. Just make sure you keep it cold, and use it quickly, as there are no preservatives in it.

 

Also: it's applewood smoked, and therefore impossibly tasty.

I like butterball turkey bacon. It doesn't get super crispy like regular bacon, but I don't mind. I mostly use it for sandwiches, so it doesn't matter if it's super crispy.

I recently switched to buffalo bacon that I get from a place just a couple of blocks from my home.

Thanks for the tip, think I'll make a trip to Trader Joe's next week - wanted to try out their popcorn too. 

Trader Joe's does have VERY good, healthy, well prepared, and VERY affordable meats. Their turkey bacon is great!

They also have pre-made (grilled) chicken breasts in the most amazing flavors(rosemary/balsamic vinaigretteLaughing).Makes eating healthy a way easier choice when it is so good and already prepared. And it's 100% real meat, not weird gross crappy stuff!

Good Luck on your quest! You will find one that suits u! Don't give up.

Much love!

Is it already cooked?

The bacon is not pre-cooked.

The chicken is, and literally has grill marks on the breasts! They r great.

They also have fully cooked shredded chicken, that all and all, is not that bad for you. It is BBQ- but depending how strict you r on your dieting, it is a fantastic choice if put up against a bag of chips, or some other quick grab item. If you can reach into the fridge, then u have time to eat healthy. Open and eat. :) And no guilt!!! That is how simple I need it for right now. I even just bought carrots pre-shredded!

Work on eating well 1st, cooking well 2nd! And I can see how that is to come. Until then...

All of you seem to like turkey bacon and a lot of my friends do too... I think it smells so funky when you microwave it though.  Is it just me?
