We have found a way to save heaps on bacon. The Amish market sells bacon ends for $2.99 per pound as opposed to full slices for $6.99 per pound. Most of the time, the bacon ends are very lean and do well for BLTs.
My brat wife throws a fit if I bring ends and pieces home. She must have only Oscar Meyer thin sliced center cut. I buy what ever I feel like anyway.
