With these rolls does anyone buy the bacon already chopped up or the rindless bacon?

I always just buy a kilo of budget bacon, picking over it to get the best packet available then I use it for everything, soup, rolls, bacon and eggs.

I've tried both and the bacon rashers are much nicer  :)

I've noticed some bacon pieces you can buy are actually labelled "bacon style pieces". I'm not sure what the are made out of, but it's probably not bacon.

I always buy bacon & chop it myself.

Same here Robyn.  By the time I cut off the rind and fat from the full rashers it is easier and cheaper to buy the shortback bacon.

Is that stuff processed meat?
Had it once, and didn't like it.
I use rindless, and buy lots of it when on special, and freeze it in 200g portions.

I have a question, is it normal for these to begin to go dry and crumbly and stale after a day? I'm not sure if I'm being unrealistic considering they are homemade and not full with preservatives. I've tried bread improver in them. My kids will eat them fresh but not after about 24hrs. Which isn't helpful for school, I'm not baking them fresh of a school morning!!

I find them so much better hot from the oven and leftovers are frozen immediately they cool down. They don't reheat too badly in the microwave but not quite as good as hot from the oven.
