Review: Bacon Salt

It’s been said by various meat lovers everywhere that bacon tastes good with everything. It’s been proven by nutritionists everywhere that eating bacon with everything would be bad for you. It’s high in fat and, let’s be honest, sometimes a pain in the butt to prepare. Enter Bacon Salt. A vegetarian-friendly, low sodium seasoning that can add that “bacon flavor” to any dish you can imagine. If you love bacon in your scrambled eggs in the morning, but are trying to cut down on the fat content, consider Bacon Salt. If you are a vegetarian, who occasionally craves that bacon flavor but can’t imagine abandoning your healthy vegetarian ways, consider Bacon Salt. If the very idea of Bacon Salt just intrigues you and you want to know more – consider buying some Bacon Salt.

I recently had the opportunity to try Bacon Salt and was pretty excited because, come on, who wouldn’t be at least a little bit intrigued by the concept of Bacon Salt (they also make Baconnaise – bacon flavored mayonnaise). I liked the idea that it was healthier than cooking with real bacon, vegetarian friendly and low sodium. Then it arrived and I lost my nerve. What if it tastes terrible? Why hadn’t I heard of bacon salt before? And, um, I’m pregnant. So once that aversion kicked in, it was hard to get past it. I stalled for awhile, trying to decide on the perfect thing to try it on. I should have looked at their website because they have some mouth watering recipe ideas like Bacon and Beer Steamed Clams, Bacon Herb Roasted Potatoes and Bacon Salt Scrambled Eggs. I tried it on some homemade macaroni and cheese the other day, and although a bit saltier than I would prefer my food to be (I’m a weird non-salt fan in general) I was still pleasantly surprised. The bacon flavor is not at all overpowering, and although I didn’t really like it added onto my food at the end of my prep, I think it would be great as a seasoning during cooking (probably how it’s intended to be used – duh).

I think if you are a food snob, this just might not be for you. But if you are a man’s man and the idea of Bacon Salt and Baconnaise thrills you? You have to try this stuff. And if you are looking for a healthier alternative to bacon or are a vegetarian who still appreciates the tastes of meats if not the actual product, I highly recommend this alternative. I love the large variety of Bacon Salt flavors available (like jalapeno, hickory, natural, black pepper and more) and look forward to trying it in some recipes in the future!

    I tried the baconnaise myself and it added a decent flavor to a chicken sandwich! I guess I should look at their website and see what else I could make with it.

  2. I tried both bacon salt and baconnaise. The bacon salt was good, but the baconnaise was AMAZING. Really great stuff!
