I’ve decided not to eat any more bacon when eating out at a restaurant, be it fast food or otherwise. I am sick and tired of being served bacon that is absolutely horrid in appearance and taste. That is all I can expect when I eat it anywhere other than at home. The bacon I’ve been served over the years has been consistently pitiful and puke-inducing. How hard can it be to cook a crisp piece of quality bacon?
The vast majority of the time, restaurant bacon is served up as a shriveled, wet, greasy, white, uncooked blob of fat. Does anyone other than me know what a cooked piece of bacon even looks like? It is a cooked crispy brown. Everywhere I go the bacon is barely cooked, limp, and consists mostly chewy fat.
This problem is particularly bad a fast food places. They are not alone, but Wendys and Jersey Mikes stand out in my mind as being among the worst offenders. If I order a club sub at Jersey Mikes, I have to refuse the bacon. If I forget to opt out, I end up with a disgusting sandwich, layered in bacon that has the texture of stringy, sinewy, chewy fat. I lose my appetite trying to sever it with my teeth.
I’m fed up! Making bacon isn’t very hard. It’s easy to make on the stove, in the oven, or microwave. How does one mess it up? I don’t understand. I’ll no longer accept bacon in my food when I go out to eat. I’ve had enough of feeling sick to my stomach after pulling a white, fatty, uncooked blob of fat from my sandwiches. I’m done! I’ll have no more of this.
