3 slices of bacon ( Wendy's ) has just 4.5 grams of fat. So does 1 tsp. of olive oil.
I am not sure if I could cook 3 slices of bacon in 1 tsp. of olive oil, since it is about the size of a quarter. So in all probability, you have at least as much fat as regular bacon, and probably more.
Of course, you don't like the taste of bacon cooked with it's own fat, so that has to be considered. However, choosing something else that seems to be the right amount of fat, usually leads to underestimating. You think that eating it the way you do, is less fat, so you just counted it the way you thought.
Bacon itself isn't that high in fat. Unless you are eating more than 3 slices a day, 4.5 g of fat is hardly noteworthy. Barring taste preference, there is no reason to not just eat the regular bacon. Even if you prefer the ends and pieces with olive oil, you should probably count it as at the least equal in fat to regular bacon. Cooking it in olive oil is an easy way to add lots of fat.People think of it as healthy, but it is actually most likely more fat than just eating the bacon.. not that extra fat is a a bad thing, but if your goal is to cut fat, adding olive oil is hardly the way to do so. There is still fat in what is left, plus the fat of the oil.
Just be careful not to underestimate.
