Eggplant Bacon

Eggplant bacon on sandwich

eggplantbaconI recently receive several eggplants in our CSA box. I decided to use them to make a live food bacon. This is a quick and easy recipe.

Having this bacon on hand is a great way to add some variety to your meals. I like to crumble it on salads, or add it to sandwiches. In this sandwich I used kamut bread, lettuce, tomato, and avocado, along with the eggplant bacon.

It keeps well in an airtight container, stored in your pantry. If you store it in the fridge it tends to get soggy.
