Bring Home This Bacon
Fill your grocery bags with these bad boys (and we mean that in a good way!)...
Jennie-O Extra Lean Turkey Bacon - How many times can we sing the joys of Jennie-O's Extra Lean Turkey Bacon? This 20-calorie-a-slice stuff is great for recipes or to chew on straight from the pan (after it cools, of course!). And with just a half-gram of fat, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, and 3g protein per slice, you can gobble down THREE slices for a POINTS® value of 1*. It doesn't quite crumble, but it does get crisp if you cook it just right. Good work, Jennie!
Louis Rich Turkey Bacon - For those of you who want more authentic (as in fattier) bacon and don't mind a few extra calories, check out Louis Rich's version by Oscar Mayer. A slice clocks in with a respectable 35 calories, 3g fat, 1g carbs, 0g fiber, and 2g protein (POINTS® value 1*). It's INSANELY delicious!
Oscar Mayer Real Bacon Bits and Real Bacon Pieces - Here we have the real deal -- already cooked, crumbled, and ready to be chewed! Perfect for a fast fix. A tablespoon of either has 25 calories, 1.5g fat, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, and 3g protein (POINTS® value 1*). Bits and Pieces sold separately (literally -- they're two different products!). Find them where the salad dressings are stocked.

J&D's Bacon Salt - This stuff is fat-free, calorie-free, kosher, and vegetarian-friendly... and it'll make everything taste like bacon! Sprinkle it on scrambles, omelettes, sandwiches, and more. Check out all the salty, bacon-flavored fun at baconsalt.com.
Bac~Os Chips and Bac~Os Bits - These are itty bitty bacon-flavored bits and chips made of soy (two separate products, people). They've got great stats -- 30 calories, 1.5g fat, 2g carbs, 0g fiber, and 3g protein (POINTS® value 1*) per serving (1 - 1.5 tablespoons). So feel free to sprinkle 'em on salads, egg dishes, sandwiches, and more! We can't help but wonder how these can be so good, and yet all of the other vegetarian bacon products taste so horrendous. Weird!
