DH and I found out a funny fact today.
We've been eating out at different places almost every day (our belongings from moving overseas haven't arrived yet, so we can't cook) and have had burgers with bacon, bacon pasta, and probably a dozen other bacon dishes as a result. We were told off-handedly by a friend today that since we live in a Muslim area, all the bacon/pork in all restaurants is actually made from turkey.
We couldn't tell the difference--except that on average, it was slightly better cooked than back in our home country.
We are impressed. Fake bacon that tastes indistinguishable from the real thing? Healthier, more sustainable, less land and energy required to raise the animal, and is accessible to all (there are several) religious groups in our area? Ehell, yes! Behold the coming of the turkon!
