This is grand to add to soups and stews...or diced with a fry up in the morning.
Superb value for money. Recommended only for use a
Superb value for money. Recommended only for use as an ingredient in a dish as the thickness and shape is random. I've used it in chicken chasseur, chowder, sausage casserole etc. Compared to precut lardons, it's a bargain.
A variety of uses, to keep you warm
Great value, can be thin prices for breakfast, sandwiches, quiche or t suitable for soup, also good for bacon and egg pie, like Mum used to make, or just with mash and beans.
Great value for Cassoulette Toulouse
OK, not the best cuts and variable quality but great value for chucking in cassoulet. Maybe not for amateurs though, certainly NOT bacon and eggs! OK for a quiche though, far better than expensive bacon bits
I buy this for chopping up and putting in recipes that require bacon/ham/gammon. The appearance isn't important. You never get the same contents twice but what you do get it 500g is bacon goodness for less than a quid. This weeks pack had a few rashers, 3 steaks and some ends. So far I've made pea and ham soup, lentil and bacon soup, cheese and bacon omelette and the rest I've just chopped up and added to my pie filling. Deff recommended.
This is a better buy than bacon rashers. I use it to make Carbonara and Quiche. Very good value in my opinion.
good value if your recipe needs chopped bacon
i've been buying this for years. It's good for recipes that require chopped bacon so I add it to risottos and pastas. It seems to be off cuts and end bits of diffferent types of bacon. 4 stars because you do lose a fair amount by the time you've cut off the big pieces of fat. Price has recently increased but still good value. I get 2 meals out of one pack.
Very tasty. I buy this every time I shop. It isn’t like the average beautifully sliced bacon but more pieces. I slice the pieces quite finely and fry quickly to make bacon sandwiches. Also dice it with mushrooms ,onions and pasta to make a very economical meal. Quite salty but it does add to the taste. Also diced in a chicken pie. Remember taste before adding salt.
Great alternative to "Pretty" Bacon Rashers
This is bacon that cosmetically didn't make the cut (pun intended). It is imperfectly sliced: sometimes fatty, other times lean, some slices are thick, others are thin. If you don't care about perfect looking rashers, if your recipe calls for crumbled bacon or a bacon/rasher starter, this is the perfect product and you can't beat the price. It's just what it says, COOKING bacon. Don't compare it to anything else.
Instead of buying scratch cards, I buy this. More
Instead of buying scratch cards, I buy this. More fun and delicious! Try your luck and see what you get. If you get unsmoked, you hit the jackpot. Still, the strips are better but for the price, I'll gamble.
