Sliced & Diced: Bacon

Sliced & Diced from Once A Month Meals Bacon. Do I need to even say anything more. Did you just start salivating? Won’t the average American eat just about anything with bacon in it? My husband will. I am pretty sure that if I wrapped broccoli in bacon that he would eat it without question or complaint. Well, that might be going a little far.

At any rate, I know bacon isn’t a produce item but we do use it quite frequently on our OAMM menus. So I felt like a good bacon post was in order. I am willing to wager that you use quite a few recipes with bacon too. So here are the results of my bacon research. It was painstaking, but someone has to do it.

  3. YUM! I wish bacon wasn’t so expensive these days…

  4. I think the number of slices might vary from brands. The bacon I buy usually buy (regular not thick sliced) has an average of 16 slices per 16oz and 12 slices per 12oz. However the number of slices vary from package to package even on the same brand. It’s good to see someone else thinking like I do sometimes. :-)
    P.S. I’m a new follower of your blog. Your OAMC is simpler than others I’ve seen and I do want to try making ahead some meals. Thanks!

      I actually checked several brands and several manufacturers and several packages of each brand and all had the same. Some bacon is being packaged in 12 ounce packages so watch out for that. But yes there can be some variations.

    I’ve found a very economical way to purchase and store excellent quality bacon. Our local meat market carries 15lb. boxes of restaurant-style bacon for $40.00. That comes out to $2.67 per pound for lean, great tasting bacon. We put it up in wax-paper wrapped 8oz. packages in gallon freezer bags in the deep-freeze, thaw in the microwave and cook. We always have the best quality bacon on hand for a great price.

    Our local butcher, Foresta’s Country Meat Market and Redners both carry Leidy’s bacon ends. It is always under $2 a pound, and is the most delicious bacon I can find. I just isn’t pretty slices, although sometimes it is! Check your local butchers and see if they’ll sell you the pieces that don’t look pretty in the regular packaging!
