Can you use turkey bacon for this recipe?

Actually, yes. Turkey bacon actually crisps up pretty well in the oven as well and it’s lower in fat content than using regular pork bacon. If you want to try that option, go for it!

Sounds like a fun conference for sure. Not sure we're offering chocolate bacon at any of ours. . . I suppose we should. That looks really yummy
