Boar's Head Ready-To-Eat Bacon
I happened on this stuff recently at Harris Teeter, on a stand in the aisle in front of the Boar's Head deli meats section.
Looking more closely at the box I saw where it said "Ready to eat."
No need to cook it and make a mess, just open the package and nom nom nom?
I'll try that, sez I.
And I did, and it was good.
Sure, you can microwave it if you like it all sizzly and hot but why bother?
I mean, it's bacon!
At grocery stores everywhere.
$5.99 for a 2.29 oz. package containing 2 sealed plastic pouches each with 7 strips of bacon (14 total).
Great for travel, seems to me: I'll be taking a couple boxes with me from now on whenever I leave town by car or train or plane for places distant.
You can too.

The best cooked bacon I have found (and by far the best priced) is Costco's Kirkland Naturally Wood Smoked Bacon. 16 ounces(which comes out to 48-50 slices} for about 10 bucks. The bacon is longer, better tasting, and way cheaper with a refrigerator shelf life of about three months! A must have for a family with kids.

I wrote in 2010 that Vande Rose was the best bacon you can buy in the U.S.:
Nothing has come along since that equals it.

Yea, I know it's bad, but there's not enough bacon in the world for me. My current favorite, Applegate Naturals uncured reduced sodium Sunday bacon. No nitrites or nitrates, antibiotics, gluten or casein, and 25% less sodium. See it's healthy pork fat! It also makes a very good BLT.

I love your blog. I read it almost every day. I'm appalled at ready-to-eat bacon.
Bacon is a rare treat in a reasonable diet. 14 pieces between you and Gray Cat?
Moreover, buying good smoked pork belly and slowly bringing home that bacon through slow cooking in an oven or on the range is 95% of "the bacon experience." The smell of bacon cooking is lost by this "ready-to-eat" abomination!
