Makes great crispy bacon
I really love this streaky bacon. I use it for sandwiches as it crisps just right eg. bacon and egg sandwich, and an avocado and bacon sandwich. I use it in pasta (instead of using lardons, which are fatty), and very important the pigs are bred outdoors so have some sort of life.
Don’t waste your money
I buy Tesco finest because that’s what I want. If I wanted a pack of fat, I’d buy lard. I’ve just opened it and I wish I could have put a photo on my review. It’s got to be the worst ‘bacon’, I’ve ever bought. I have to have my groceries delivered because I’m disabled and can’t manage it, but to be honest, I would have picked this anyway. It looks fine until you move the top piece. I’m absolutely disgusted with Tesco.
This used to be nice but has dropped in quality. The last pack was incredibly salty and left a brown stain in the frying pan - possibly wood smoke "flavour" rather than real smoked bacon. I shall avoid it in future.
Hope you prefer fat to bacon
Nice flavour, but the packing is deceitful. What appears to be lean streaky bacon is actually a packet of streaky fat. The meat is laid in such a way that hides the gross amount of fat and the back of the packet is not transparent so as to hide what is there. Once opened all that can be seen of the underside of the bacon is a mass of white fat.
Very disappointing. Extremely fatty rashers, disgu
Very disappointing. Extremely fatty rashers, disguised by one lean rasher on top! Not up to Tesco's usual standard for 'finest' range.
Very tasty bacon
Just love this tasty bacon, grills to be crispy with none of that horrid white stuff that sometimes comes out during cooking.
I love it, use it for making Minestrone soup, have done for years, also for pasta dishes,
The first couple of orders were good, back in I think September, but very hit and miss since. With varying failings such as all fat, shrinking to minute rashers and taste disappearing, now at 8 bad packets out of 10 I would say.
Very Tasty 😋
This bacon is so tasty once tried u will adding It every week to your order so handy to have in the fridge to add to rice / pasta ect For a quick meal ✅
Excellent quality - unless you are unlucky
Am a regular buyer, generally enjoying this product as it fries well, releasing enough tasty grease to be able to fry a tasty egg. However, occasionally the quality slips, there being too much fat. Refused a pack some months ago, as could hardly see any flesh!
