Trader Joe's Uncured Turkey Bacon -- good substitute for julienned ham

This is a very good tasting low-fat substitute for ham, and would be terrific in pasta sauces, quiches…anywhere you might use julienned ham

Preparing to make a "bacon", asparagus and onion component for a pasta cheese sauce, I used this "bacon" thusly: I cut across the slices to make small julienned pieces, and heated them in the skillet. I was pleasantly surprised by the tastiness. I don't think it'll crisp up like real bacon (just not enough fat), but nevertheless for my purposes it was perfect. It got a nice caramelized edge, and tasted remarkably like ham.

It is made from turkey thigh meat.
