Product Description: Fully-cooked sliced bacon from the Hormel Black Label brand. I purchased this heat-and-serve bacon product while shopping at one of our local grocery stores earlier this week for around $4 and, after warming up the bacon in our microwave oven, used the slices when making BLTs for dinner.
Review of Hormel Black Label Fully Cooked Bacon
I purchased a package of this earlier this week. Read to find out what I thought of it.
I recently purchased 4 pounds of tomatoes during a routine shopping trip at Costco and, not wanting them to go bad, have been trying to find ways to use them. This includes deciding on BLTs for dinner a earlier this week.
When I made this decision, I realized the only ingredient I was missing. So, before work, I stopped at one of our local grocery stores and, after some consideration, purchased a box of the Hormel Black Label Fully Cooked Bacon.
This decision was made, in part, as a result of the price. I knew I wasn't going to have a lot of time after work to make dinner (we had some other things going on that evening) and decided to go with an already-cooked variety. The Black Label brand was about 50 cents cheaper than my other options. And, as it turns out, it was a good purchase overall.
As far as preparation goes, this product was as I expected it to be. All I had to do was put the bacon slices on a microwave-safe plate, cook them for a short time and they were done. They even came out of the microwave nice and crisp, just as I like my bacon.
I was a little concerned about the taste when I purchased this brand because a lot of the pre-cooked varieties tend to be a bit on the salty side. That was not a problem with this brand, however, The bacon had a nice flavor to it and was well-seasoned. But, it was not overly salty and was much more enjoyable as a result of that. In fact, I think the BLT sandwiches were a big hit as a direct result of this bacon choice for that very reason.
