Okay, so “gobble” was an
artfully not-so-artfully placed pun.
But when it comes to Butterball Bacon Style Turkey, it’s true!
Here’s the dealio. I love me some bacon. It’s crispy, delicious, and it my mouth literally salivates when I smell it cooking. In fact, one of my favourite Seth Myers quotes is:
In an interview with a fashion industry website, Kate Moss said, ‘Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels”. Said the rest of the world, “BACON”.
Long-time readers of my blog will know I’ve got a preference for a certain Natural Selections kind of goodness. Alas, as much as I’d like to indulge on a fairly consistent basis, my waistline just can’t handle it (yet I’m not inclined to eliminate it altogether – sorry Kate Moss).
Hence, I love to switch things up with Butterball Bacon Style Turkey. It boasts 50% less fat than regular pork bacon, and is slowly smoked over hardwood chips to give authentic bacon flavour. What I love most? There’s practically no shrinking after cooking, and you’ll have ZERO fat on the pan when you’re done. That’s right; no messy goop left over – which means less messy goop in your arteries. Win-win!
Butterball Bacon Style Turkey is the perfect way to get the family off to a great start in the morning. Just two slices provides 19g of protein, which kids need to grow properly and stay healthy. And for Mom, the same serving size yields only 70 calories and 2g of saturated fat. (Another win-win? Indeed!)
When crafting this post, my intent was to do an awesome breakfast recipe – with the Bacon Style Turkey, Waffles, Fruit… you name it. But as I put the breakfast in front of the kiddos, there’s just one thing they “gobbled” up… the turkey bacon, of course!
They went on to eat the rest, but only after they had their fill of Bacon Style Turkey. Can’t say I blame them – it’s quite delish. (Side note – I was hoping to snag a piece – but by the time I put my camera away, it was g-o-n-e. Drat! Next time!)
Butterball Bacon Style Turkey can be substituted for pork bacon in all your favourite meals, including BLTs, bacon-wrapped chicken, pasta dishes and more. But for us, it’s perfect at breakfast. I know that the kids are getting valuable protein to start their day, and my hips aren’t mad at me after I indulge :)
