Jacks Gourmet- Facon

I saw this while shopping today. Anyone tried it? Was considering purchasing it, but I can't think of eating meat for breakfast.

  1. So just put it on a burger.

    1. I bought some, and I enjoyed it. My wife who is BT said "It's not bacon." She also stated she liked Beef Fry better.

      I enjoyed it because I thought it stayed meatier than the A&B's Beef Fry which gets so crispy it falls apart when you pick it up.

      All in all I would buy it again, but not share it with anyone.

      1. You've never taken left-over brisket or corned beef and made corned beef hash with an egg on top? It's a perfect non-matza option on Pesach.

        1. I have used it to make a kosher Quiche Lorraine to serve at brunch or during the 9 days for dinner with a salad.
          I have also fried it up in a pan, drained and crumbled it and added to salads.

          Great for FLT sandwiches as well.

          I on the other hand, love a fleishige breakfast, my favorite is salami and eggs pancake style...and I drink my coffee black <VBG>

            Why during the 9 days specifically? That's when most kosher-keepers avoid meat.

            1. re: queenscook

              Shabbos during the 9's our custom to have items flavored with meat as opposed to meat being the main ingredient

                OK, got it. I think I would prefer to use Morningstar strips and make that milchig. :-)

                1. re: DeisCane

                  but we always have meat to honor shabbos (unless it's a fast), but minimize it during the 9 days

            2. re: bagelman01

              You used beef during the 9 days, in a Quiche?

            3. Try warming Turkey pastrami in a microwave for a few minutes until it crisps up. Better than bacon.

              1. re: skipper

                Is there readily available kosher turkey pastrami? What's the brand?

                1. re: skipper

                  Are you referring to the turkey pastrami (I guess it's Empire, or whatever) that I buy as a sliced luncheon meat at the deli counter?
