Question ISO Bacon Replacement

Hi

I am preparing a cream cheese filled chicken wraped in bacon. Normally I use regular bacon for the purpose capturing the salt and flavor in the baking process. With my fiancee, she is jewish. So I want to make the wrap for her but need to know of any alternative meats that are similar or non meats that can do the same?

Thanks for the help

How 'bout trying "turkey" bacon, which is available in most grocery stores?

If you just wanted to add it to a sauce or something like that I would suggest smoked tofu (don't knock it till you've tried it ). but for wrapping around something I think that KatieE's suggestion is a good one.

Well for the sauce, I normally use a sour cream mixed with spinach and garlic cloves but I am going to go with a mango puree with a little bit of salt, lemo, pepper, and cilantro. Any thoughts ?

I am confused about what her being Jewish has to do with it. If she keeps kosher then having the cream cheese with the chicken is just as bad as having bacon.

GB, as usual, is spot on.

Kosher dietary laws are far more extensive than just avoiding the meat of the pig.

Probably the most commonly observed are the bans against pork and mixing meat and dairy.

But there are many others that extend from the manner in which the animal is slaughtered to the dishes upon which the food is served.

It might be helpful if you and your fiance had a discussion regarding what kosher restrictions she observes.

Just a thought, good luck.

My suggestion? Go with open faced bagels with cream cheese, lox, a thick slice of tomato, a thick slice of bermuda onion, and a sprinkling of capers. Oh, and use paper plates!

Yeah, but he's already got the cream cheese, and if he can afford lox, she'll be impressed!
