Thanks, UB. I've never been behind the scenes before.
I just found out there's a huge difference in flavors between the different "regular" bacons. I typically buy Oscar Mayer's regular bacon. I've tried "off" brands and the taste was always about the same, but OM seems to be much leaner. The last time I was at the store I picked up some Sugardale bacon because it was on sale. I don't know that I'd like it by itself for breakfast, or in a sandwich, but fried with some onions and green beans
Oh yeah, babe. I can't believe how much smokier the flavor is than any packaged bacon I've had before. It really adds something special that was missing before. I even checked the package to see if it was extra smoked or something.
I'll have to start labeling the bacon in my freezer so I know which is which.
