Quorn Bacon Style Rashers
Advantages: very tasty and inexpensive
Disadvantages: hard to separate slices
Quorn is a vegetarian substitute to meat and is brilliant quality and very tasty.
This quorn bacon tastes lovely. It is in the freezer section of supermarkets and costs between £2-£2.50.
It has 8 pieces inside on a gold piece of card. I usually cook mine in the frying pan and it has it's own taste rather than tasting like meat as that's not really what a vegetarian is after.
Most people say "well it doesn't even taste like bacon" that's because if us vegetarians wanted something that tasted of bacon, we'd not be vegetarians. I have been for 11 years, and my reason being was i don't like the chewy texture of meat. i'm only 21, started at 10 and i still can't bring myself to take a bite of meat.
I enjoy being able to have something more than eggs and toast for a fry up breakfast now, and I can have it in a sandwich too! What I really like about these bacon style rashers is that if you cook it a bit longer than suggested then it becomes very crispy and that tastes even better.
Quorn is grown the way mushrooms are. It made from a Fungi which mushrooms are.
So you can be sure it isn't some processed chemicals bundled together to make a fake pack of bacon.
When you get it out of the packet it is very difficult to separate each individual slice to cook as they have been frozen, you need a knife to try and prise them apart. I contacted them about this situation and they said to part defrost it before cooking, but i couldn't wait that long, i was hungry!.
ive found if you put it in the frying pan in a lump, the heat makes them separate.
I highly suggest this product for any vegetarian who is looking for something different for dinner.
I have tried lots of different recipes and have found that cutting it up and using it in a pasta bake, is the best way to use it. You won't be dissapointed.
Summary: good for a fry up for a vegetarian
