"Almost Bacon" is exactly what she says she is... It's almost like bacon. This beauty is made from ground pork shoulder that is formed, smoked, and sliced to perfection. It can be a great substitute for bacon in any recipe. If I had to describe the flavor, I would say it's a cross between the flavor of bacon and ham, leaning heavily on the bacon side. The texture is firmer than traditional bacon, though it still crisps on the edges.
