Default Lean bacon

I like most people look for lean bacon while sopping in the super market, I made the mistake the other day of buying what I thought was the leanest bacon I'd ever seen and thinking it was going to be the best tasting ever. Boy was I wrong, the bacon was so lea there was almost no fat drippings in the pan and the bacon itself lacked in flavor.

Any of you ever have the same disappointment?

I've been in therapy for 19 years over a similar incident I just call " the sizzle lean " breakfast.

Why in tarnation are you looking for the leanest stuff you can get? Don't you know that the flavor is in the fat.

Yea...why lean? I understand not getting the fattiest pieces (looking through the "window" on back of package, but animal fats are good for you. Your body needs them and burns them efficiently...the hype about "fats" killing us is nonsense.

"Lean bacon"...

You should NOT eat lean bacon. Fat is good for you. Eat the fat!

I buy the thickest fattest Bacon I can find.
The Publix Thick sliced 24oz package.
I save all the grease and have a glass container in the fridge I store it in.
I use it to sauté chopped onions in, then I add a bunch of Collard greens and a bit of water to let them simmer. It's off the hook.
Also, save the drippings and lightly brush a chunk of Amber Jack with the drippings, a pinch of salt and fresh ground pepper, then sear it in a cast iron skillet. Its not bad.
Bacon Grease rules......

Anyone know a good Cardiologist?

Cardiologists are for those that slowly kill themselves avoiding fats and scarfing down simple carbs...

And I've got 2 jars of bacon grease in the fridge

Same stuff. At times, it is not available till product is cured and available. Benton's has a large following.

If you truly believe that you need to ask a plumber what the biggest cause of clogs in pipes is. It is the grease or fat that we dump down our drains, it sticks to the walls of the pipes and eventually clogs them. And your arteries/veins are just pipes, so keep on sending all that fat down your drain (mouth) and your arteries will eventually need roto-rootering.

Is that the best you have? Comparing pipes to living beings that have evolved on eating meats and complex carbs for millenia gave me a good chuckle...

Do you know what has been known to cause inflamation and cause scarring within the circulatory system? Methinks you need to do some more research...


Edit to add: This should give you a good start (just one of the first links I googled....there are more and more docs coming out and advocating higher saturated fat diets while reducing simple carbs). The docs and gov't have been lying to you for a few decades now...None of the studies they pushed were ever really "proven."

Default X2 I stumbled on this bacon years ago. Nothing better bacon wise.

Slow cook in a cast iron skillet. It was so good I had to bribe the waitress to get the brand name years ago.

I heard Red wine works like "liquid plumber" on the arteries.
I'm sticking with that theory.

The same kind that cracks an egg and tosses the yolk in the trash?
