Enjoy the Kosher Vegetarian taste of bacon

We don’t buy bacon (or ham) very often in our household. I try to avoid it because of all the salt, additives, and fat. But I really do like bacon. If someone else cooked it for me, I could easily put away a one pound package (uncooked weight) by myself. While Bacon Salt doesn’t eliminate all the sins of eating bacon, it drops a bunch of the fat calories. Also, you can make all sorts of things taste like bacon without having to mess up your kitchen cooking the wonderful/horrible stuff. Plus, for vegetarians who sometimes secretly pine for their lost nitrate-laden fat slices, Bacon Salt is vegetarian. Also, for those eating Kosher who haven’t always eaten so ‘purely’, the product is also Kosher. In both cases, the ‘pure of intent’ folks might shy away from something that mimics something they really don’t want to eat.

But, for me, I think I will give it a try. Bacon popcorn anyone?

Oh my gawd -- my husband is going to just LOVE this. I b*tch about his complete adoration of bacon, mostly because I worry about his health. He hates "fake" bacon, which to him includes low salt bacon, turkey bacon and vegetarian bacon. Thanks for the tip!

The link doesn't seem to be working, but it sounds potentially interesting. How does it differ from Bacos?

The difference between this stuff and Bacos, I think, is that this is really bacon-flavored salt. It is granular, like salt, as well. Bacos are a bit more chunky. These look like they would mix into other things pretty well.
