Bacon is one of my favourite foods!
I do not generally eat red meat however when I stopped eating it (after having cancer) I decided I did not want to stop my bacon -silly, I know, as it is one of the most unhealthy foods!
I like mine very crisp/crunchy and do not like it at a buffet as it is not done well enough and has fat.
I always use short cut bacon which has, at least, little fat on it.
However I would not even have it once a week and have not had any for about 3 or even 4 weeks.
No! I challenge any bacon eater to watch a video about how pigs are farmed and killed and to continue eating bacon. Pigs are treated in an inhumane manner.pigs are as intelligent as a dog. Yet we would be outraged if dogs were treated like that, so why do we let pigs get tortured for our pleasure. Considering they are as intelligent as a dog, we should be ashamed. If you read this and think- if I watch those videos- I wont eat bacon, so I don't want to watch them. . . Consider that you are paying people to commit these injustices and by ignoring them, you are still guilty. If you love bacon why not eat free range bacon only or try to lobby for pigs to be treated more kindly?

Hi Finy. Maybe it is not that free range bacon is so expensive, but that cruel farmed bacon is so cheap.
I do understand that when a cheaper prduct is available, and our budgets are tight, that it is a tempting option. We have to do what is right by pur own consciences and I was hoping maybe one person, might reconsider the choices they make.
No hard feelings.
Yes bacon tastes good in various ways, however, I too make sure it is local and properly farmed, and as I don't eat bacon regularly I don't care about the price.I would rather do without than buy imported etc.
Me too, Rice, me too! I can't abide 'dry' bread or toast! Even have a scraping of Butter, & I do mean BUTTER, not these mixed oil & butter products, so they
can be spread straight out of fridge, with American Peanut Paste!
'Devondale' have a pure Butter tub, which has to be taken ex fridge in advance, as no oil. I think I'll stick with NZ's 'Mainland' Butter, which is THRICE churned, & spreadable immediately ex fridge!
Why can't an Aussie Dairy do the same, instead of adding oil, which makes me nauseous?
I have not eaten bacon for ages,though when I have had it,I have absolutely LOVED it!! I like it fairly crunchy,but not well-well-done.
I used to chop it with onions and fry till 'golden-scrumpshallumptious' ,and then add this to my very,until that moment!!,healthy Fried Rice!!
Have really gone off bacon over the past few years'. The taste is a bit 'weird'. Must be all these different ways of pig farming.
I'll try, & find some 'free range', give it a go, blow the cost.
If I've a 'craving' for it, I'll get 'streaky' bacon rashers, but only 'once in a blue moon' these days...............
Yep but I remove the fat before cooking it on low. I love a good bacon sandwich with a slight amount of tomato sauce. Oh yes.... also on a rare occasion, bacon and eggs on toast (slight amount of butter and scrambled egg using 1 whole egg and 2 egg whites). I can have my bacon, eat it too (and keep the fat content down).
I love bacon. When it's not holy week (since I'm Catholic and practice abstinence), I eat as much as I could. I try to avoid the fatty part, though, because besides my fear of high cholesterol, it's sometimes difficult to chew and digest.
Try slightly covering your bacon with water in the frypan and then cooking as normal. This renders the fat so you do not have to burn it of making your baon crisp and tender rather than dry and crumbly
