Box of Hormel Microwavable Bacon
Cooked Hormel Microwave Ready Bacon

After microwaving a "pouch" of four Hormel bacon strips following the instructions on the box, the bacon strips shrank down to almost half their original size, and they didn't turn out to be crispy at all. They kind of felt more like a thick cut bacon and were pretty chewy. So, they were super easy to make and tasted fine (just like bacon), but I would have preferred a crispier and less chewy texture. I would have also liked it if you didn't have to cook 4 bacon slices at a time.

El Charro Chicken Elegante Cheesecrisp

I tried a Chicken Elegante Cheesecrisp from El Charro Cafe.

The chicken on the cheesecrisps tasted like the usual chicken that comes on pizza. I thought that the avocado tasted pretty good, and the bacon on the cheese crisps went well with the chicken.

It definitely tasted better than a quesadilla to me. I usually get a headache from eating quesadillas, so I was pretty happy that when I tried this quesadilla-like food, I didn't get a headache. I really liked that it was very crispy, and even after warming it up in the microwave and eating it later, the crispiness was still there.

Box of Trader Joe's Beef Tenderloin Wrapped in Bacon
Trader Joe's Beef Tenderloin Wrapped in Bacon

I tried some of Trader Joe's bacon wrapped beef tenderloin, and it was delicious.

I cooked it up in a toaster oven, rather than a conventional oven. I still followed the directions on the box, cooking it for approx 15 minutes on 475 degrees. This did result in the sticks getting a little burnt, but the steak was fine.

The bacon on the outside was a little chewy and stringy (which I didn't mind), and the bacon taste mixed with the peppery, salty seasoning on the steak was very nice, especially when you're in the mood for eating something salty.

Update (2013): Unfortunately, I don't see these any more.. I think they were discontinued. :(
