Eat Like A Pig...

Our daughter Stephanie brought us a wonderful product that she is able to buy at her San Antonio HEB grocery called BaconSalt. It's a low sodium, zero calorie, zero fat, vegetarian and kosher seasoning that adds an authentic bacon flavor to anything you use it on. Bacon Salt comes in a variety of flavors, including Original, Hickory, Peppered and Natural. I first saw it advertised on QVC Shopping Network. Since then, it’s been on Oprah, Good Morning America, ABC News, Daily Candy, NPR, and Fox News. I'm almost out of the bottle she brought, so this morning I went to their website J&D's to find out if I could buy their products in our town. No such luck, but I did find them at a couple of meat markets in towns that are close by.

I'm anxious to try their "Baconnaise." Bacon, mayonnaise...the world's most perfect food in spreadable form! It has received high praise in the regular and "Lite" version. We eat a lot of turkey sandwiches around here, in hopes of losing a pound (that never happens but we don't give up easy!) At our advanced age our goal is really just to eat as healthy as possible with a few treats every now and again to keep life exciting!

I have to admit I was a little giddy as I bought the Baconaisse Lite and carried it out to the car. Anticipation does that to a "Foodie!" But the reward came when I got it home, popped the seal under the lid, and slathered the Baconnaise on our Turkey, lettuce, sprouts, and tomato on wheat and took a bite. It's smoky and has a real bacon flavor. Looking on the back it is made with oil, water and egg yolk, just like mayo. At 30 calories, O grams of trans fat and only 105mg of sodium it fits that Healthy Guideline that's so hard to do. We love the taste o'bacon, but it's greasy and messy to fry up. Now with Baconnaise, I can get real bacon-y flavor right out of the fridge in seconds to doctor up those boring turkey sandwiches!


  1. Of course, I had to jump right to a post with "pig" in the title. I love bacon flavor. Going to have to see if I can find that stuff.

  2. Now I have something to hunt for when on my shopping expeditions. This is the kind of product that I'd like to try.

  3. WoW, what a find. We gave up bacon years ago due to sodium for Hubby and cholesterol on my part. We allow ourselves the annual BLT when the tomatoes ripen. This would be great to add to tomatoes year round. I'm soooo excited. Thanks! Now this farm chick is gonna go eat like a pig :o)

    Ya'll have yourself a fantastic day!!!

  4. Thank you for this wonderful recommendation - I've just now put it on my 'city' shopping list for next month :) Yummmm... Bacon!! -Tammy

  5. I NEED this. Low sodium?? I definitely need this!

  6. Nice product! What a flavour and I bet it's delicious too.
