I'm not a fan of pork in any form, not a religious thing, I just don't care for it anymore so I love turkey bacon myself. Butterball brand has been the most delicious I've had so far.

I've thrown out enough frozen bacon over the years, that 'm going to ask...

How do you store your bacon? As a single gal, I'm only have 2-3 slices in one sitting and probably not more than once/week. Its a huge PITA the try to peel off frozen together bacon slices.

How do you store it? Separate and store servings in baggies? Other suggestions?

Off topic for a second, but this quote made me think of this... :) My husband is Jewish and when discussing this with my sister one time, talking about the different things we don't eat (she was 17 at the time), she looks at me and says "you mean you can't eat hamburgers??" huh noway huh (Seriously, I stared at her for a few seconds with those exact expressions on my face!) To this day (almost two years later) we won't let her live that one down!

On topic:
While I prefer the taste of regular bacon (I was not raised Jewish so have had bacon before) and the crispiness, we don't eat it because my husband is Jewish (by blood more than anything, but he does stick to the "no pork" thing- also for health reasons). If you have no religious or other reasons for staying away from pork bacon, I would say go for it and just watch your portions.

If I am eating bacon for strictly flavor like bacon and eggs...then bacon all the way but with a pound of bacon hormel being almost $9 per package at our local store. If it is in a dish or something where I will eat 1/2 the package I use turkey bacon at $3.25 per package.

The trick my friend told me with turkey bacon is to cook it on a wire rack in the oven over a cookie sheet to get it to cook up more like bacon. As I like it super crispy but pan frying turkey bacon to crispy left it burnt. :( oven is the way to go
