Add a burger, lettuce and tomato to this week’s products and you can make a different type of bacon cheeseburger.
Vive la différence!
1. DIESTEL UNCURED TURKEY BACON
Diestel Family Ranch sells turkey in every form imaginable, from the whole turkeys and cuts to ground turkey, hot dogs and sausages.
The birds are sustainably raised with care on family farms, with no antibiotics, growth stimulants, hormones or nitrates.
They eat a wholesome vegetarian diet, get plenty of fresh air, and have room to roam.
The latest in the product line is Uncured Turkey Bacon. Sugar-free and fully cooked, you can crisp it in a pan or microwave it quickly, to serve with breakfast or quickly add it to a burger sandwich.
Use Diestel’s sliced turkey breast to make a yummy TBLT (turkey bacon, lettuce and tomato, of course!).
Or, switch the turkey breast for a turkey burger (or other burger of choice) for a bacon cheeseburger.
Diestel’s Uncured Turkey Bacon is is made from whole-muscle cuts of turkey, without the fat (and messy clean-up) of pork bacon (photo #1).
Slow smoked over natural hardwood, the bacon is delicious baked or fried. Spiced to please, you’ll enjoy every bacon-y bite.
And it’s low in fat and only 35 calories a slice.
Every Diestel product we’ve had has provided juicy turkey goodness, but switching to turkey bacon make us feel good about eating a healthy, lean meat alternative to conventional bacon.

2. JARLSBERG SLICES
Many people who are lactose-intolerant have given up dairy cheeses for vegan cheeses—or no cheese at all.
But there are two cow’s milk cheeses that are 100% lactose free: Cheddar and Jarlsberg.
The total freedom from lactose—as opposed to other cheeses that have low lactose—is a function of the ripening process, where the remaining lactose is consumed by lactic acid bacteria.
Both are available in slices, ready for your burger.
People who like American cheese slices will go for Cheddar.
People with a penchant for Swiss cheese will want the Jarlsberg.

3. NANDO’S HOT PERINAISE
Nando’s famous hot Peri-Peri Sauce has been subtly blended with creamy mayonnaise.
The result: fiery mayo for everyone who likes a hit of heat.
As a slightly spicy dip for chips and crudité s.
As a spread for burgers and sandwiches and salads.
As the base for salad dressing.
Nando’s adds the fire and flavor of the peri-peri chile pepper to a range of sauces, marinades, spices, rubs and snacks.
The line is all natural, preservative- and MSG-free.
