    Molly53's Note:

    These original "bacon" bits are delicious served sprinkled on baked potatoes or your favorite fish dish. From the New England chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947. The recipe is easily multiplied and cooking time is approximate. Save the rendered fat for other cooking uses. Since most of the fat is rendered out, I believe that the calorie count is skewed to the high side.
