Never had hooves nor snout.
But beak and feathers.
Flesh in pinkish brown straight line striations.
Not turkey, not bacon.
Real bacon-- random fat-laden pork meat formations.
A Daliesque mockery.
The striped plasticized slice.
"Mechanically separated turkey, water. salt, sugar, seasoning, turkey meat,...
Smoked and cured dark and white turkey”
The whole turkey?
“Chopped and formed” in a machine?
Bones, beak, gizzard, brains, feet?
Bacon -- mere pork belly.
No shrinkage or color change when cooked.
Vaguely tastes like a chewy Canadian bacon.
Bacon--shrinks by half. Delicious!
It seemed like a good idea at the time.
A “healthy” piece of cardboard.
Give me crispy, smokey, fatty, bacon.
