Don't do it.  Turkey bacon isn't that bad.  Besides, you can eat twice as much of it.

Did you taste it?

If it's the fat she's worried about, get yourself some of this - it's so good.

Actually, Turkey Bacon has about the same amount of fat but 2X the sodium! All you have to do is look at the Nutrition facts to see I'm true. Eat real bacon and do it in moderation. Real bacon is not the health demon do many people make it out to be.

I can't say the turkey bacon didn't contribute to my situation, in all honesty.

Hey, thanks for the info.  I can't wait to show my wife!  Sodium is an even bigger concern for me than fat.

I'm just happy you're not really getting a divorce.

Now go buy your own damn bacon. In bulk.

You had me concerned for a second until I read the word "bacon" in your post and at that very moment I knew it was all going to be okay...

Thank God.  ;D

Better yet, MAKE your own damn bacon and put whatever you want in it.

Turkey bacon just sounds so wrong...so, well, artificial...I mean, if its cured and smoked turkey strips, fine, but bacon it is not.  The same way I don't want mock turkey legs made out of pork.

On second thought, those might be pretty dang tasty!  Turkey made out of bacon!  Its a thanksgiving MIRACLE!

Back bacon (sometimes known as canadian bacon), which you can make yourself fairly easily, is a great lower fat alternative, but anything that is "bacon" is cured, and anything cured is high in sodium at some level.  Can't cure without salt!

Just leave it in there and let it rot.  There is no bacon on a turkey.

I think she was getting you back for wearing that hat.

Last Thanksgiving, my mom made a turkey wrapped in bacon. It was the best turkey I've ever had. And the bonus was we got to eat bacon as a side dish. I'm not sure what I ate more of, the turkey, or the bacon.

I know I'm late on this topic, but I saw the topic and the OP, and I nearly pooped myself.  Don't do that, Barry!
