    Turkey Bacon

    How can humanity combine two of the greater things like Turkey, and Bacon, and come out with something that tastes so wrong?

    Re: Turkey Bacon

    I used to work part time in the meat department and there is nothing more nasty than ground turkey. It's like turkey slime, I have not idea how anyone could ever make the claim a turkey burger or anything they use ground turkey instead of ground beef could possibly taste better.

    Re: Turkey Bacon

    I eat turkey bacon weekly. Honestly think it is as good or better than pork bacon.

    Re: Turkey Bacon

    I like turkey burgers. Turkey bacon is ok, but not as good as pork. It just doesn't seem to get as crispy.

    Re: Turkey Bacon

    Turkey bacon does not taste as good as pork. But it's so much better for you it's worth the lack of flavor.

    Re: Turkey Bacon

    I don't mind turkey burgers at all especially with the way we make them. Turkey bacon is a whole other thing though. I just prefer regular bacon and with a little effort I can find some that has a little less saturated fat. Just have to watch out for the sodium.

    Re: Turkey Bacon

    Brand of turkey bacon makes a huge difference. Oscar Mayer is much better than Jennie-O.

    i get it at tiefenthalers locker in holstein iowa. they grind it up with some pork tallow and press it into strips that kinda look like turkey bacon. heavy on the pepper too. low grease, and it doesn't shrink up like normal bacon but the flavor is very good.

    Re: Turkey Bacon

    Nope, it all sucks. Turkey burger is somewhat acceptable if it is in something that covers the flavor of it (e.g. spaghetti sauce or sloppy joes)
