Is there a standard part of the turkey that they use to process "turkey bacon"? Is it pressed from different sections of the turkey?

  • Excellent title question, considering it's not turkey, and it's not bacon. Commented May 30, 2012 at 4:08

1 Answer 1


The meat for turkey bacon comes from the thigh of the turkey and can be cured or uncured, smoked, chopped, and reformed into strips that resemble traditional pork bacon.
