I’m someone who doesn’t like a lot of chemicals, in case you hadn’t figured that out by now. I really don’t like it in my food, especially in lunchmeats, cheeses, or bacon. So, when Applegate asked me to review some of their products, you can bet this girl say, “OH YES!” Here’s some of the recipes I came up with what they sent me:
- 1 loaf ciabatta bread, sliced in 1/2 horizontally
- 1/2 cup pesto sauce
- sliced turkey
- sliced cheese
- Split the bread down the middle horizontally.
- Spread the pesto all over one side (or both, if you want)
- layer the turkey onto the pesto.
- layer the cheese on the other half of loaf of bread
- place in a preheated 400° oven for 20 minutes

Take 4 potatoes and cut into cubes. In a large skillet, add 2T of beef tallow. When the pan is screaming hot, add the potatoes and add salt and pepper to taste. Stir carefully, and then cover and allow the potatoes to cook through. Meanwhile, slice the turkey bacon into small lardons and fry to render crispy. Layer the potatoes and bacon and sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Add fried eggs, if desired.
As you can see, Applegate products have made their way into our family’s life. My daughter is only sad because the bacon is only 8oz package and she could eat bacon every day for the rest of her life. I like the fact that there is no nitrates, and no other chemicals in their products. The turkey bacon fries up just like pork bacon would. You’d never even know it was turkey. As a matter of fact, I was scolded by my youngest at first “Moooom…this is pork!”
Yeah, it’s that good. As a matter of fact, they sent me some of their great chicken strips, too! I WAS going to make a salad with that, and a few other delectables, but I was unwise enough to leave this deliciousness alone with my family for an evening. I came home and they had scarfed it all down!
