Whenever I go to Costco I always look for healthy alternatives and foods I can use for work breakfasts and lunches. Last time I was at Costco I picked up this Lilydale Turkey Bacon to try! I had a few different ideas on how I could use this to make tasty work breakfasts and lunches during the week back at work after the holiday!

This was super easy to “cook” although it’s already fully cooked. You can choose to microwave it, heat it in the oven or heat it in a pan. I chose to heat it in the oven because I cook all of my bacon in the oven using my favorite no mess bacon cooking method! Seriously, this is the best way to cook any kind of bacon. There’s also so many ways to use this turkey bacon. I used it to make a turkey bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich for work on a Costco Kirkland Signature Jalapeno Cheddar bagel, I also used the turkey bacon to make an egg frittata that can be frozen and taken for lunch. You could add it to your salad, or use it for breakfast with eggs, pancakes or waffles. I’d even have it for brinner (breakfast dinner).

The regular price of the turkey bacon is $12.99 for two 500 gram packs. I was able to get it on sale for three dollars off.
Two slices of turkey bacon is 80 calories, three and a half grams of fat, two grams of carbohydrates, 10 grams of protein and 410 mg of sodium. The ingredients list has sugar on it but the nutrition label states zero grams of sugar so I’m not sure about that!
Costco Lilydale Turkey Bacon Nutrition
It definitely doesn’t taste like regular bacon so if you’re a huge fan of good old bacon then you might be slightly disappointed by the Costco Lily dale Turkey Bacon. In my opinion it does actually taste and smell similar to peameal bacon or ham. It’s rather salty, flavorful and thick but doesn’t get crispy like other bacon does. It also doesn’t have the rubbery/slimy texture that other bacon can get when underdone. To be honest, this turkey bacon doesn’t taste amazing and I definitely prefer regular bacon, the turkey bacon isn’t exactly “bacon” but it’s a healthier alternative to bacon and was good to try and will give me something to bring to work for lunch or make a breakfast sandwich with.

I probably won’t buy the turkey bacon again, it’s a little on the salty side and I just prefer the taste of real bacon. I love trying new foods though and will have some different lunches to use this up!
