Applegate LESS FAT Good Morning BACON and Healthy Salad {Recipe}

Applegate recently debuted a lower fat bacon - Uncured Good Morning Bacon - of course we had to try it. Just so you would know it has been tested out by professionals. I mean, amateurs. But very serious bacon amateurs.

Hubby is a meat lover and bacon is in the top 5. He had be the first one to try it out and cooked some up while I was still asleep. I am just surprised he left me some in the fridge to taste for myself...

The bacon is made from a different part of the pig, hence the lower fat, 60% less! It also produces less grease in the pan because of the lower fat content. I was impressed by the light clean-up from this bacon. I hate having to throw out tons of bacon grease before super washing the pan it was cooked in.

Applegate uses no nitrates or preservatives. With just 4 ingredients, all allergen free, Tubby could sample the uncured bacon. It left quite an impression. He said he wanted bacon for Christmas. I kid you not. And he loves trains!

You can incorporate this ingredient into a healthy lunch or dinner salad. This is a modified version of an original Swedish recipe.

Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Pomegranate Seeds
  • 8 oz. Brussel Sprouts
  • Applegate Bacon
  • Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • Tsp. Sea Salt 
  • Black Pepper (grinder if you have one)
  • 8 oz. Organic Baby Spinach
  • 1/2 Cup Pomegranate Seeds 
[Open and seed pomegranate if you are using fresh.]

Remove stems and outer dry/ripped leaves of brussel sprouts if desired. Cut in half.

Chop bacon into small bits. Fry a few minutes. 

Add the oil and cook brussel sprouts on medium heat. Keep stirring them around so that they get a little soft. Brussel sprouts will get a little brown when they are ready. 

Add salt and (grind) pepper over the sprouts and bacon. 

Remove from heat and add the spinach and pomegranate seeds. Give it a stir and let set a few minutes.

Serve and enjoy!
