After sugar overdosing yesterday on King cake for breakfast, today my bacon craving is making me hanker for a hunk o’ breakfast meat. Upon inspection of my refrigerator and freezer, the only thing that qualifies is a frozen breakfast sandwich: a Smart Ones Canadian-Style Turkey Bacon English muffin. So I followed the directions to a T, wrapping it in a paper towel and popping it in the microwave.
Unfortunately, the result did not look like what I expected from the package’s photo. I believe the whole thing was overcooked; the turkey “bacon” had the consistency of rubber and the rest of the sandwich, old sponges.
I can’t really blame Smart Ones for this – I guess breakfast meat isn’t meant to be microwaved… it’s meant to be fried or baked to your desired level of crispiness. And not be made of turkey, but pork belly.
Oh bacon, do I miss thee. Easter seems so far away.
