Jac bought turkey bacon for a change, and fried it up with eggs for our breakfast. I had a couple of slices of turkey bacon with an egg (yep, over easy, also for a change – I usually have sunny side up), with two slices of fluffy fresh white bread, one spread thickly with kaya.
As it was cooking, the turkey bacon smelled pretty good – not exactly the same as bacon, but close. But when it came to its texture and taste – FAIL! It just felt wrong – it had the soft texture of a reconstituted meat product (not enough chew!) and came sliced much too thin. It didn’t feel good at all as I chewed it, and it didn’t taste so great either. So disappointing. I didn’t finish my two slices, which says a lot – it’s rare that I leave anything on my plate! What is strange is I am sure I’ve eaten turkey bacon before – and I don’t remember it being quite so objectionable (though if you think about it, how could turkey ever = bacon?). o_O
