    They don't taste the same but they're pretty similar texture wise and absolutely adequate.

      is turkey bacon a good alternative to pork bacon or do they not taste the same?

      They're in no way the same. There's no place on a turkey where there's the same fat profile. The only thing they have in common is they're both salty and smoky.

      Turkey bacon is achieved very artificially. It's processed to ape pork. Turkey is great for what it is: bird meat. As soon as you try making meatloaves and pepperoni out of it you're guaranteed to be disappointed. Frick turkey bacon. Frick turkey burgers. Especially frick turkey jerky.

    What I do is buy pork belly slices and brine them with salt then add smoked paprika, doesn't fry up crispy like bacon but tasty and without the bullshit most bacon has in it

    No, turkey or even tofurkey is dusgusting and made by muslims who hate pork, pork bacon is the only proper bacon and there's a definite taste difference.

        I worked for a fine butcher shop where we would make "duck bacon"
        basically just took cheap duck breast, brined it in our bacon dry brine for a few days, then smoked it over alder
        it was priced at like $35 per pound and people lost their mind and thoer wallets over it
        it wasn't that good imo
        some people wanted it sliced, which, for a large slice, you would have to cut butterfly style slices, which went with the grain and ended in one slice that was 90% skin and fat while the rest were very lean, otherwise you could make tiny slices across the grain, which didn’t have the same bacon for factor but had a better fat/meat ratio and texture
        to make a real good duck bacon you would have to do a formed meat product like turkey bacon

      It's not strips of cured turkey like normal bacon. It's turkey paste pressed into pink and beige colored strips to mimic the appearance of bacon, with added sneed oils to simulate the fat.
      t. bought a pack once out of curiosity

      It was "edible" but not pleasant.

    Turkey as a bacon or hot dog substitute is quite possibly the greatest psy-op of our generation. It is absolutely fricking rancid tasting. You will never be a real pig.

      Subway was seemingly solely using turkey for years before anyone cared enough to notice.

    To me the taste and texture is almost exactly the same as fried thin slices of Spam.

    It isn't the same at all. Texture tends to be tougher and along with the flavor tends to be closer to turkey jerky... which is fine, but it isn't pork bacon. Now the alternatives I haven't tried and have interest in are Beef bacon and lamb bacon...

      beef is absolutely everywhere in all sorts of different formats, if beef bacon was worth eating it would be available to buy a lot more than it is

        you can make a decent beef bacon out of beef navel
        in my experience it takes longer to cure and needs to be sliced thinner due to stronger tensile intermuscular fibers

    Not the same. Turkey bacon is a lot meatier. I like cooking them, rolling them up and eating them like that. I like the chewy texture.

    -sigh-

    no, turkey bacon isnt the same as pork bacon. its not even bacon, bacon has to be porn to be bacon. alternative bacons were mostly invented because selling pork bellies to china makes massive yields. bacon prices have gone up because its better to sell the bellies to china. i learned this in 2014-2015 when i went to my local butcher and asked for a half pig belly for cracklin. it was $44 for 15lbs and he said they ship them all to china for way more but he doesn't want to screw anyone stateside.
