A Butterball BreakfastWednesday, November 07, 2012
Quick. When you think of breakfast, what is the first food that enters your mind? For me, it's eggs. For my husband, it would likely be bacon and eggs. And while I love the smell of bacon, I often find it hard to ignore all the fat and grease that you often get with the regular variety. This means I usually pass it up. Until I tried Butterball Bacon Style Turkey, that is.
The fact that Butterball's bacon style turkey is 50% less fat than regular pork bacon sure sounds good. But then I learned it is slowly smoked over hardwood chips which helps to give it an authentic bacon flavour. Doesn't that sound tasty? So it goes without saying that their bacon style turkey is rather delicious and complements your morning eggs quite nicely. When it comes down to cooking, I like that there is minimal shrink and that each strip lays flat making it easier to cook evenly. It's also perfect on top of a turkey burger, too.
For breakfast, a freshly made waffle with fruit and a side of bacon would be fantastic. Or how about a turkey bacon frittata? When it comes to the hectic morning rush of a weekday, though, my inclination to cook is minimal if not non-existent. I have, therefore, been known to make an extra sandwich during school lunch prep just so I could have a fulfilling breakfast before running off to work. A little ham, cheese and tomato sandwich using Butterball's ham-style turkey on a OneBun can certainly hit the spot not just at lunch but at breakfast, too. Or maybe even as a late-night snack while blogging away... Er, excuse me. I'll be right back.
