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!

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.
