Just wondering what any of you think of turkey bacon.  This is stuff from  The Fresh Market.. not exactly Whole Foods, but a mini version.  I have looked at a list of ingredients.  It's not "just turkey".. but I don't see any red flags... do any of you other type O's out there eat turkey bacon?  

All thoughts welcome

Not an O but I use turkey bacon from time to time in a BLT and it makes a great addtion to a pot of split pea soup for that smokey flavor. what I have found is to cook it slow and try not to over cook.

I like turkey bacon but haven't found a brand yet that suits me . . . either the slices are too thin or there isn't enough smoky taste. I'm a terrible snob about bacon, it has to have a great cure to stand up to being used to flavor beans or soup or even in a sandwich.

We do have a turkey farm about half an hour away, one of these days I'll go to their store and see if they have bacon. Their fresh turkeys are to die for at Thanksgiving and they make excellent turkey sausage too. For anyone in the Bucks County area, it's Bolton Turkey Farms.

Yes there is a real difference between fresh, never frozen turkey  without additives and a butterball. My parents used to raise them in the back yard. I've had one go from strutting to steaming and brown in  less than five hours.

Exactly GCG--same with chicken. My mom used to buy eggs from a farm down the road, and when they culled the old broody laying hens every year she would order a couple dozen of them for winter food storage. They were tough and stringy--nothing like the huge birds you get in the store--but they were perfect for making soups and stews. And the flavor was out of this world! My mom's chicken soup was ambrosia because of those free-range birds. The turkey from Bolton's is the same way--flavor flavor FLAVOR. Their sausage is fantastic. You'll never go back to pork!

Anyway, back on topic: the one brand of turkey bacon I've found that is pretty decent is Godshall's. It might be a local brand, not sure. The slices are thick and have a good taste, though they aren't smoky enough for me, and they don't crisp up without burning. Pretty good for making baked beans or use in a soup; a little too chewy for a BLT, but then I like my bacon crispy

Could you please list the ingredients on the food label for us so we can better assist you, sheri?

Not all, but many commercial bacon products contain nitrites, smake, artificial flavorings, and questionable or avoid sweeteners.

I use the Applegate Farms variety and cook it real slow until it is chewy and a bit crispy.  Delicious!

I prefer the Wellshire Farms brand of turkey bacon, cooked in a cast iron pan with a little bit of ghee. It comes out crispy and chewy!


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

Sorry for asking you all this question...I asked Rodney it on a similar thread not long ago but there seemed to be no answer

We all know that pork bacon, be it lean back or streaky, is some flesh and fat on the outer edge, usually with the rind (unless rindless.)

So...what happens with 'turkey bacon'
What does it look like
Is it somehow 'moulded' to resemble 'bacon'

I'm perhaps thinking of how vegetarians eat veggie burgers/sausages...that are made to resemble meat products. I have a hard time with that one....I thought the very thought would repulse 'vegetarians... But then I've never been one so maybe I don't understand the logic behind it

I'd really like to know, if someone has the answer, thanks

I guess it all depends on why  someone doesn't eat meat.  I was a vegetarian for about 16 years.  My reasons were various.  I really  prefer other things to meat, so not eating meat was easy as far as cravings go.  I am a huge animal lover, so I'd rather not eat anything with eyes or parents.  I LOVED that part of being a vegetarian.   Unfortunately for me,  that lifestyle just didn't keep me healthy.  I personally never cared if  I ate a veggie burger that resembled meat, but my daughter doesn't like a lot of vegetarian products that resemble meat in  looks and taste just because that's not her mindset... it's all individual... I think most vegetarians don't miss animal products, but that's just my opinion.  I guess some people who are doing it strictly for health reasons MIGHT be sad  about not having some of their favorite meat dishes....  just my thoughts...
I do so well on beef that I just know meat should be a part of my life... oh well...
