I've tried to make fake bacon out of so many products and eggplant seems to mimic the texture of bacon the best. Here is how to make your own eggplant "bacon" at home!
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Yield: 12 slices
I am in the UK and have never heard of "liquid smoke" (and I presume eggplants are what we call aubergines). We do however have smoked paprika which smells like bacon so I will give this a go
Liquid smoke is a traditional American product. It is a liquid available in most grocery stores state-side. It is used to approximate the smoke flavoring of an outdoor grill. The most common brand is Wrights, which is available through Amazon in 3.5 oz (@103 ml), and comes in a variety of "wood" smoke flavorings (e.g., apple, hickory).
Paprika is a suitable alternative or you can use Lapsang Souchong or Russian Caravan black tea. Just steep the leaves in boiling water for five to seven minutes and use.
I love eggplant! This seems like a fun way to change the flavor and I can hardly wait to try it.
Thanks for posting and your instructions (like Judy's) are always very good.
Mmmmm...sounds good! I too try to replicate bacon. I wonder if zucchini would also work since it's texture is similar to eggplant? Ever try it?
Aubergines, yes :)
I have not tried it but I will try it for you the next time I go shopping and let you know!!!
Aww thank you, Betty! Appreciate it! Enjoy the "bacon"!! :)
Will be making this! It is making me so hungry and I don't have a big appetite! Thank you!
This sounds good; however, if you are vegetarian (like I am) or vegan, omit the Worcestershire sauce as it has anchovies in it.
