Product Talk: Butterball Everyday Turkey Bacon


Butterball Turkey BaconWe can put away the bacon in my house.

Seriously, between two growing boys (and me!) we love some bacon.

Generally, I choose a center-cut variety of regular bacon, but we’ve also gotten hooked on Butterball Everyday Turkey Bacon.

One slice contains 25 calories and 2 grams of fat. While it provides 2 grams of protein as well, there are also only 80 mg of sodium, which is lower than regular bacon on all counts. That’s about 65 percent less fat and 40 percent less sodium than pork bacon.

The other thing I love about turkey bacon is that it’s easier for me to cook – and clean up! Whereas pork bacon splatters, turkey bacon is cooked through, crispy and without a mess on a paper towel in the microwave. My stove doesn’t get dirty, and it’s quick and easy. The paper towel absorbs some of what little fat is in turkey bacon.

Our favorite way to eat turkey bacon is on a BLT with avocado! I’ve been packing this for school lunches, but I pack all the ingredients separately. (I use baby spinach in place of lettuce.) I let them assemble the sandwich when it’s time to eat. That way nothing gets soggy.
