  • To Eat Bacon Or Not To Eat?



    I have a crappy version of bacon lying in my freezer, it's smoked, has nitrates and sugar in it; all the good stuff.

    But I want it.

    And it wants me.

    Should I make the first move? Or should I find another object of desire?


    Sorry for the lame analogies. It's late.

    Eat it. I haven't seen any compelling evidence against nitrites. And the sugar is an inconsequential dosage.

            I can't believe I actually read this stuff! Oh the things I will do for bacon...


            Okay, so breakfast with bacon with extra serving of nitrates coming right up!

            Though it's sugar I fear


            Now the question is... raw or cooked?

              Ice, you're single? The world is unfair when pretty young Canadian girls are left unattended! (yes, I'm hitting on you! It's 4AM here!)

                No pretty Canadian girl should be left unattended! :P


                The amount of sugar in bacon is really really minimal. Did I mention minimal? Most of the store-bought stuff has sugar in it but if you take a look at the nutritional info, per serving there's typically 0g. Maybe unless it's the maple sugar stuff.


                In fact, I just had 6 glorious pieces.

                I grok, therefore I am.

                  Okay, what's the deal with bacon? Maybe i'm doing something wrong, but everytime buy some to try and work out what the fuss is about it just tastes salty and greasy. It isn't gross, but just a bit... bler. Cooking tips anyone?

                    Store bought bacon is horrid. That's my thought.

                      A month ago I absolutely loved the organic nitrate free bacon from the farmer's market. Had some last night, but just too salty for me now. Think will spend the $ on pork bellies instead.

                        Haha! I went on quite the bacon binge this week - did away with two packs! My favorite was wrapping 7 asparagus spears with one big juicy strip each and microwaving them. Fast, tasty and no mess!

                          @TigerJ - Are you talking about the little packs of salted pork bellies? If so, how do you prepare and eat your pork bellies?

                            It becomes too salty when you make it crispy.

                            I always undercook mine. I like is soft and soggy!

                            It drives people nuts :]


                            Scallops wrapped in bacon are good!

                              I love bacon. I switched to getting it at the farmer's market instead and you can notice a huge difference. Much less salty and just tastes more real. Again NSWM, Atwater!
