Re: Needs recalculation, TimR.
Streaky bacon IS real bacon! And it must be properly dry cured. It should never produce any water in the pan even if the pan is started from cold with the bacon in it.
The stuff you get in the supermarkets in the UK is mostly complete rubbish.
BTW, the fat is good for you. The protein you need a lot less off. So streaky makes sense.
