Granulated Pork Seasonings

Bacon Salt

Bacon Salt

We are trying to lower our fat intake and someone suggested I season my veggies like squash and beans with this powdered ham flavoring. Well.....I have no idea how much to use. Everytime I try it, I ruin it.

So do you have any idea how to use that stuff?

Or do you have any OTHER ideas on ways to season veggies without using a streak of lean or ham hock. Basically, I want my squash and onions to taste like I cooked them in bacon grease, without the bacon grease. Those crazy doctors think bacon grease is bad for you.

Thank you very much. I am enjoying your site and sharing it with my friends.

Have a blessed day


Hey there Lori!

I've never tried Granulated Pork've got my curiosity up so next time I'm at the grocery store, I'll have to look for it. I don't know that you're ever gonna find a substitute for good 'ol bacon grease.

I have found a seasoning that is pretty good. It's called Bacon Salt. I think they have a few different flavors. I've never used it much. You can sprinkle it right on your food at the table.

If it's just pork fat that you are concerned about, smoked turkey is really the only somewhat acceptable alternative I've found. Smoked turkey wings make a great substitute for ham hocks. Turkey bacon would work well with as a substitute for pork bacon in almost any recipe.

I hope this helps.

Warm Dishes,
