@Josh: Do you know about the excellent uncured "ends and pieces" bacon at TJ's? It's high-quality bacon at a fraction of the cost. A full pound for $2.99. (Usually a pack of bacon slices isn't even 1 pound.) Once you go "ends and pieces," you never go back! Fair warning: This stuff is super-fatty.
I'm surprised I'm not seeing sardines (packed in OO) on these lists. Big nutritional bang for the buck.
