Using up thawed meat

I have a half pound of Italian Sausage and a half pound of bacon in the fridge that need to be used. I'm thinking I'll put them both in lasagna. Do you think the bacon will make it taste wierd?
Not that bacon is a bad taste! I'm just not sure it will go with the rest.

I think the bacon would make it too greasy. You can always brown bacon up (save the grease) and crumble it up for baked potatos, salads, or other topping ideas... maybe even on top of your lasagna? Should not be too greasy at that point. Well, I guess thinking about it, I guess your meat would be pre cooked and drained. Who knows, you may be on to something!!!

As much as I love it, I wouldn't put bacon in lasagna. Here's a tip I read once: Separate the bacon slices and roll them up. Put the rolls on a cookie sheet and freeze. When frozen, put the rolls in a plastic ziplock bag. Now you can pull out as few or as many as you need. HTH.

I was going to brown both the sausage and bacon first and drain it.

You could make a hearty soup with the bacon and sausage.

make a Full English then, you`ll need some fried bread, baked beans, fried egg, fried tomatoes, fried mushrooms, and hash browns.

don`t forget to bring your Appetite and a bottle of Sauce Rouge! (that`s Ketchup to you and me).
