I'm not a vegetarian but lately I've been trying various Quorn products! Quorn is a brand of non meat foods such as mince and chicken. One of the products I've recently tried is the Quorn style bacon rashers.
Quorn products are available in all supermarkets such as Asda, Tesco and Sainsbury's. depending on what product it is you are buying, they can be found in the freezers, or in the refrigerators. They are easy to spot though and stand out nicely on the shelf.
The bacon rashers are found in the freezers alongside all of the other quorn frozen products. They are really easy to find and are usually on the bottom shelf.
It comes sold in a 150g box. It isn't a massive box so I was a bit annoyed at the price we were getting charged. We were going to have to pay £1.99 for the little box. I thought this was pretty shocking! Often there are offers on with the quorn products but there are currently none on with the bacon!
The box Is really quite attractive and jumps out at you on the shelf. I wouldn't say it is one of the most pretty products in the brand though. The box is made of cardboard and on the front is the big QUORN logo! The back of the box obviously gives all nutritional information and ingredients as most products do. The thing I noticed about the front of the packet was the huge picture of the actual product itself. It didn't actually look too appealing to be honest. The egg in the background looked more tasty than the actual bacon rashers themselves. They didn't look like bacon at all but instead resembled raw sliced ham meat!
Opening the box you come across the bacon slices. They are rectangular in shape and are a perfect shape unlike your usual rashers of bacon which are all lopsided. It actually doesn't look at all like bacon and I was a bit scared as to whether the taste would be totally different too! The quorn bacon is lighter in colour and looks more like sliced sandwich meat!
I had my bacon rashers on a sandwich one morning for my breakfast! I did the bacon as I do usual bacon under the grill. It took slightly less time than normal bacon takes to cook! It didn't go as crispy as normal stuff but this was good for me as I hate crispy bacon. There was a nice meaty smell going through the house and for once it actually smelt like the real product. When it was finished I popped four slices of the bacon on to my bread and squirted it with brown sauce. Lovely.
Taste wise it was actually ok. It wasn't as tasty as I'd have liked and didn't totally resemble real meat however it was quite pleasant. It had a nice crust to the top which I hadn't been expecting and had a fairly smoky taste to it too. The texture was quite chewy just like normal bacon. I think I'd have to have it on bread though as alone it would be a bit bland.
A typical portion of this contains a mere 74 calories and a rather large 5.4g of fat. Considering I had four slices on my bread this makes it 296 calories, add on 200 for the bread and say 50 for the sauce this is making my breakfast a whopping550 calories! Considering I had a yoghurt after, its not very good!
