I LOVVVVVVE bacon----I could easily eat half a pound, at one sitting!! Unfortunately, I can't take the grease, now----and, even though I drain it, and put it in paper towels, it still "gets" me. I miss it, so.....

what if you cooked it in an air cooker?


Huh? DO tell!!

it's just that I watched this late night infomercial once that showed bacon cooking in a tabletop air cooker device, all the fat just drained from it, it was well-done, just final dab dry with paper towel, and it was much less unhealthy to eat that way. it is sort of like broiling or roasting but not in its own fat like frying in a pan would do.


Ohhhh, maybe it was one of those convection ovens? I've been wanting one of those, for AGES!! Those info-mercials drive me crazy----I want almost everything I see----especially if it has something to do with cooking!!

Every once in a while I make a really healthy salad and throw some bacon for fat and taste.

I don't like how people put bacon into everything these days though. I'm not crazy for it in every dish. But now of course you are making me want some!

i think bacon is numbly, but haven't bought it in years due to two things: high saturated fat - heart disease and strokes nitrates - colon cancer

have you tried faux bacon?

don't know where i'd get it.

also known as facon, vacon or veggie bacon, it is made by several firms, most notably by Morningstar farms, so any supermarket in your area that carries Morningstar farms products will likely have their version of it. also, these people make their own kind-

and this page has a vegan bacon recipe that sounds interesting-

if the fatty pieces have the lions' share of the fatty oily greasy stuff cooked out of them and have become browned, I like them.

when i was a child, i was on a bus and smelled a person with B.O that was almost identical to bacon. i have since discredited bacon as an article included in my gastronomic desires.

^ I've had a similar experience. When I shared a flat with someone, he was not very hygienic and his bedroom had a very strong bad smell that resembled the smell of a certain type of salami. That really put me off that particular kind of salami.

i can not imagine how you could tolerate it for even 1 minute. i demanded to be let off the bus immediately that i became aware of it.

it is akin to olfactory assault. how dare they trespass into my nostrils with their noxious fumes of rancidity.

I've often wondered, if pork is "the other white meat" then why is so much of it pink?

I have a mean streak for bacon and cooked three rashers this morning. Add two eggs and some chestnut mushrooms.

Yes I do not have this everyday :mrgreen: and don't promote it either really. A good tip is to grill everything. Except the eggs of course.
