I was at Doc’s Country Mart in Bixby on Saturday checking out the different varieties of Mrs. Dash and came across these two Bacon Salt products. I recalled seeing the two inventors on a TV show a year or so ago. Then, I thought it was funny and a little silly, but always remembered the interview.
I admit I like bacon but don’t like the mess of cooking it, or the calories and fat of eating it. So, there’s not much bacon that passes through our doors. However, I have a 6′ tall, skinny, 16-year old son that loves bacon, and a bacon-loving hubby too. So, actually seeing this product on the shelf stirred my memory and of course I had to buy it.
I bought the original and hickory flavors. The original is mild and pretty good, but the hickory is down right smokey and tastes more like bacon. We tried it on our eggs and loved it. Warning: a little goes a long way. It would be great on a baked potato, soup, burgers, sour cream dips, popcorn, even salads. The 16-year was later caught eating just the salt…no, stop it, son.
Bacon Salt is $3.39 and is zero calorie, zero fat, low sodium, vegetarian, and kosher. However, the ingredient list looks more like shampoo than food, but what the heck.
