I am having a really hard time listing this under bacon. Over on Flicker I was ashamed to put it in the food set. Once again I did this for you BorK readers. Morning star farms bacon is vegetarian. I love how the picture on the box is not fancied up. It looks just like on the package. It sat in my freezer for two weeks till I got the courage to try it. You get a pretty decent amount of strips. They are really cool looking. Like play dough and feels about the same. The bacon smell was strong before and right when I started cooking, but not too close to real bacon.

We have been making so many of our foods from scratch, which is pretty cool cuz I know it is not filled with chemical crap. I could not imagine someone feeling good about eating these besides the whole not made from animals thing. Just look at what they are made of.

EGG WHITES, SOYBEAN OIL WITH TBHQ FOR FRESHNESS, TEXTURED SOY PROTEIN CONCENTRATE, MODIFIED CORN STARCH, WHEAT GLUTEN, HYDROLYZED VEGETABLE PROTEIN (CORN GLUTEN, WHEAT GLUTEN, SOY), CONTAINS TWO PERCENT OR LESS OF GLYCERIN, SALT, SOY PROTEIN ISOLATE, SODIUM CITRATE, SODIUM PHOSPHATE, SUGAR, NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS FROM NON-MEAT SOURCES, TORULA YEAST, CARAMEL COLOR, MONOCALCIUM PHOSPHATE, SODIUM TRIPOLYPHOSPHATE, NATURAL SMOKE FLAVOR, MALIC ACID, GUAR GUM, YEAST EXTRACT, LOCUST BEAN AND GUAR GUM, SODIUM SULFITE, CARRAGEENAN, RED #3, DISODIUM INOSINATE, DISODIUM GUANYLATE, NIACINAMIDE, IRON [FERROUS SULFATE], AUTOLYZED YEAST EXTRACT, NONFAT DRY MILK, YELLOW #6, VITAMIN B1 [THIAMIN MONONITRATE], VITAMIN B6 [PYRIDOXINE HYDROCHLORIDE], VITAMIN B2 [RIBOFLAVIN], CITRIC ACID, CYANOCOBALAMIN.

Yup you even get your nitrates. The taste was baconesque, almost like turkey bacon / sizzlean but not quite. You have to be very careful cooking it to get the texture right. The strips in the pic had rubbery parts and pieces that shattered like glass. They will make excellent dog treats.
