The Challenge: Vegan Bacon
Yesterday, I posted an upcoming recipe in my cookbook for a Vegan BLT made with POTATO BACON. This shit is groundbreaking folks. It is the best vegan type of bacon I’ve ever had homemade, and it will absolutely crush your taste buds and fill up your hearts (or something else sappy). I wanted to give you all that potato bacon recipe, since its just so AWESOME.
We start with russet potatoes that we slice thin. Then, we parboil those slices for just 4 minutes to break down the potato just a tad. From there, we slather them with a delicious marinade that is smoky maple-y yummy mmm mmm good. We bake them for 15 minutes then douse them again and then bake another 15.
What are we left with? A crossover of like a hash-brown + chip with all that salty, maple, buttery, fatty, smoky deliciousness. Its perfect for a salad, a sandwich, tacos, breakfast plates, brunch time, and well … anytime! Its just downright gooooood.
Without further ado, here it is!
