Muffins, not fabiabi, and I agree with you. Picky eaters bug me.

"I don't like..." when repeated often enough, tells me not to cook for that person. Let em cook the three things they like themselves!

Sorry Muffins, but that's how I feel on the subject.

As a "part time vegetarian" myself (I eat mostly fish or eggs for animal protein, but occasionally I'll indulge in a small serving of beef or chicken), I would omit the bacon altogether. I also don't care for soy substitutes. They may not contain any meat, but they're usually highly processed foods.

If you want a little bit of the smoky flavor that bacon offers, just try adding a dash of smoked Spanish paprika. It's got great flavor and is an awesome addition to recipes.

If you make your own soy patties, tofu and sauces, there is hardly any processing.

Tofu:

1. Soak beans over-night
2. Put beans in soy milk maker
3. Machine grinds, heats, grinds again and is finished in 20 minutes with fresh soy milk.

The ground beans can be used, mixed with veggies and grain for patties or meat loafs and the milk can be made in one more step into tofu.

If tofu is fried to light brown and then smoked, it's wonderful in salads, stews, soups and even by itself.

Homemade tofu is an entire other class when compared to the paste they sell in the store.

The stuff you buy in the stores? Yep, they process it to death like most boxed, canned or packaged foods now.

If the words on the label aren't even in my dictionary, then what am I eating? Monophycoaciasotodiplydiseride or some such nonsense....

I would leave it out or if he eats fish I would add some smoked salmon.

I've never had a problem getting vegetarian bacon crispy.
Like with real bacon once it sits its gets more crispy.
I use Morning Star brand bacon.
