I'm left scratching my head as to why anyone would eat turkey bacon. I bought Wellshire Farms Turkey Bacon at Harris Teeter this week, partially because it was slightly cheaper and partially to try something "healthier," and yesterday made 2 slices for breakfast. It tastes okay on its own merit, but it's like comparing regular bacon to Canadian Bacon--it just ain't the same.
And, nutritionally, it's not all that different. I normally buy Wellshire Farms uncured regular bacon which is 60 calories and 3 grams of fat for 2 pan-fried slices. I normally microwave, so some of that fat is absorbed by the paper towels. By contrast, the turkey bacon had 35 calories and 1 gram of fat per slice. So, the difference is that the turkey bacon has 10 calories MORE for 2 slices and only 1 gram of fat less.
So, what's the advantage? I'm still trying to figure that out...sure, the slices are more substantial, but that's part of my problem with them. They aren't like crispy bacon; they're more like a ham steak. Guess I'll be buying more bacon this week!
