This 2 pound package of bacon bits and pieces is made from what's left of a pork belly once it has been sliced to make bacon slabs or strips. Same pork belly, same great flavor, but in a different shape. And at a lower cost than sliced bacon.
Smart chefs know to keep bacon on hand for recipes; and smart and frugal chefs know using bacon ends and pieces for recipes calling for bacon is a good way to save money and still turn out a fabulous dish. You can make superior bacon bits by chopping up some of these ends and pieces into similar sizes then toss them in a fry pan and cook on medium, allowing the pieces to sizzle in their own liquid froth, then drain on paper towels once cooked to your preference. Store them in air-tight container in the fridge for up to a week, and you may say good bye to what mass merchandisers call bacon bits. Add them to soup, salad, mac-n-cheese, biscuits, beans and more.
