I'd say "facon" is more like it, just a contraction for "fake bacon."

May I offer a belated

I just bought a big package of some sort of greek appetizer that was more or less advertised as a largely vegetable based product, which had as its first ingredient...ground beef.

Plus some nice tzatziki to dip them in...heavy in yogurt, cream cheese and other nice low fat items.

I'm gonna eat them while looking at the package that yells about pine nuts and bulgur wheat and doesnt talk much about the ground beef or the fact that they appear to be deep fried.

On the back it mentions the tzatziki, so thats fat free as well according to my lawyer.

I'm surprised that this important news took so long to come to our attention:

Quote:
Prairie Orchard Farms in Manitoba told Toronto's Globe and
Mail in March that it has been successfully infusing hogs with
omega-3, the oils that get the best press among fatty acids, since it
is found plentifully in healthful salmon and other seafood. A
laboratory analysis of a slab of Prairie Orchard's "enriched" ham
had the omega-3's of almost one-fourth of a large salmon filet, but
the best news of all was that a 100-gram side of bacon equaled that
of the salmon filet. [Globe and Mail, 3-19-08]
No word on whether that omega-3 was derived from wild salmon or farm-raised...

If its from wild salmon, it'll taste better.

Apparently, this bacon thing is taking off. This guy's GF is shown modeling a bacon bra:

Here's a blog dedicated to bacon:
