I prefer the Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon. I've tried others and particularly don't like the Jennie-O. The good news is my kids and husband don't even like real bacon anymore and prefer turkey bacon. In fact, they refer to it as 'pig' bacon! :)
I also like the Oscar Mayer "center cut" bacon when I want the real bacon taste. It actually has better stats than some of the turkey bacon that i have seen out there, but the pieces are tiny.
I'm not a big fan of turkey bacon... just because i dont think it taste like regular bacon what-so-ever, i eat expecting.. "YUM BACON" and get something that doesn't taste like it at all.. .lol soooooo i just advoid using it.
I'll have to look for the other brands. I think the kind I had was the Jennie-O, it was terrible. It was thick and rubbery and was colored weird to make it have red and whitish stripes to look like the meat and fat of real bacon. I like my bacon to be thin and crispy.
I eat the precooked microwavable bacon now, it's only 70 calories for 3 slices, and it cures my bacon cravin' for now.
It's yummy too.
I like Jenny-O the best tasting to me....
well, i'm just not a fan of frie dfat of the regualr bacon, and growing up a vegatarian made me really picky when i did starting eating meat as an adult. I have tried them all, but wehne it comes to quality and quantity, you dont want one piece that will be 60 calories! Go to Whole Foods and pick up a pack of the Turkey peppered Bacon by wellshire Farms, you will find it along with the regualr stuff. This bacon is 98% fat free and is 35 calories per slice. And two slices is a pretty good serving size for me! I love it, and buy a few packs at a time. THey are about $4.99 a pack.
Just tried Butterball brand and sort of like the Oscar Mayer better I think.
I don't like Jenny O brand in anything!
Butterball is a good brand. :)
i prefer the butterball turkey bacon to Oscar Mayer, for some reason the oscar mayer gets this processed smell to it when i cook it.
You should try turkey sausage. One or 1/2 a link is enough for breakfast and one of the big links is just over 100 calories. there really good with eggs.
Good point about the salt - definitely would be an occasional item for me as the scale knows when Ive salted up my diet.
