I love Turkey Bacon, especially when nobody else buys it and it goes on sale with a big discount. Then I bake it in the oven and freeze it for later (in 4 strip sections separated by wax paper). Great for sandwiches.

We haven't had red meat for quite a while either and turkey bacon is one thing I will always have in stock in the freezer, along with pork, chicken and fish. I do splash a little bit on bratwurst though...especially the beer and cheese variety.

I do like turkey bacon, but regular bacon is far better

Well, I prefer pork bacon, too, but it's one of the things I can't eat, so I was pleasantly surprised at the flavor of turkey bacon. Makes a reasonably good BLT, which is better than none at all!

I buy & freeze turkey bacon too when it's on sale (usually a buy one, get one free deal) - but I just freeze the whole package raw. It defrosts just fine.

I love turkey bacon. The kind I buy is fully cooked. I just brown it.

Wink TLT's

We use turkey bacon all the time for blt's (I sometimes call them TLT's for turkey) and potato soup in the winter.

We cook the turkey bacon strictly in the microwave now.

I prefer regular bacon myself, but for me it's about doing what I can - when I can to reduce fat/cholesterol without a medical mandate to do so. I've been eating turkey bacon, burgers & taco meat at home for almost 20 years now. I even eat veggie burgers some time, though I'm not a vegetarian. And I love beef, too.

For health reasons, my dh doesn't eat pig bacon. He really enjoys turkey bacon. I find it tasty, though certainly not the same as regular bacon. I've gotten so used to the taste, that when we go out for breakfast, I don't order bacon or sausage,unless it's chicken or turkey.
I cook it in the microwave, also.

I tried turkey bacon awhile back when I made a low fat spaghetti carbonara dish with white wine. (I was trying to cut the fat.) The carbonara dish was so so. Would have preferred the real thing. I will give it another try though, as I love BLTs & Turkey Club sammies. May try adding TB to my red clam sauce (for ravioli). Thanks for sharing. Have added it to my list.
