Okay, so this isn't really bacon, but it tastes like bacon and you can crumble it over twice-baked potatoes or sprinkle it over bean soup.
This comes from a tip from a reader, who heard about it from Jacques Pepin.
Just take leftover skin from your Thanksgiving turkey, place it fat-side down on a baking sheet, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and bake until crispy. Oo la la, this is good!
Crispy Turkey Skin Bacon
Turkey skins (either already cooked, or raw)
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 375°F:
(or 350° convection).
Place turkey skins in a single layer fat-side down on a rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake at 375°F until well browned and crispy (5-10 minutes if already cooked, longer if starting out raw).
Remove from oven, let cool to touch. Crumble and serve:
over salads, on soup, on twice baked potatoes, etc.
