Bacon Scallop Tower 1

UPC’s Bacon Scallop Tower Scallops are an amazing food! They have a subtle delicious flavor, which borders on a rich meat, but without the complexity that you get out of red meats. I love to combine other subtle but delicious flavors, like the Lemongrass Coconut Scallops that I did some […]

Trader Joe’s Uncured Turkey Bacon – A “The Bacon Project” Post 7

Trader Joe’s Uncured Turkey Bacon Being perfectly honest, I simply don’t find the idea of turkey bacon to be terribly appetizing. There are officially three kinds of bacon: Pork, Beef, and Turkey.
