FAQs About Turkey Bacon

Unopened turkey bacon can stay in the fridge for up to two weeks. If you need it to last longer, put it in the freezer, where it will last for up to eight months. The original packaging should be good enough to keep the turkey bacon from getting freezer burn, but you could also wrap it up again to make sure. 

Opened and uncooked turkey bacon should stay in the coldest part of your fridge. Make sure to eat it within a week, or wrap it up and put it in the freezer for up to six months. 

Most classic bacon brands have an option for turkey bacon. You can usually choose between thin or thick-cut bacon, and either one will work; it just depends on your preference. If you choose a thicker cut, just remember it will take longer to cook, especially if you like it crispy, and sometimes a thicker cut won't get crispy at all.

Turkey bacon comes cured and uncured. The uncured versions have not been cured in sodium nitrates and are healthier than the cured options.
