TVP BLT   (+4, -2)  [vote for, against]
microwavable cold vegetables made of Textured Vegetable Protein

Use a food additive combination to create the perfect one-step BLT that would go from freezer to between bread in about two minutes. Sizzling spicy bacon with cool juicy tomato slice, topped by crisp green lettuce, mmmmm!

There's pleny of vegetarian bacon out there. Quit worryin'.

Since pigs eat vegetable matter, and convert it into protein, would that classify bacon as TVP? Also huge technical hurdles must be addressed in keeping the 'bacon' sizzling hot while keeping the tomato & lettuce adequately cool. Consider the millions in R&D spent by McDonalds on their failed McArch Deluxe which featured separate insulated compartments for hot ('meat') and cold (veg) sandwhich components. If the chemical engineers in the McDonald's kitchens can't bake it, I doubt anyone can...
