Sunny's Eggplant Bacon

Sunny's Eggplant Bacon

Introduction

Adapted from Isa Chandra Moskowitz's Appetite for Reduction recipe for eggplant bacon, but my sauce is very different. I didn't have soy sauce and thought Bragg's would swap in nicely. Wrong! I hated the flavor, poured it out and tried again. 6 slices covers a sandwich very well.

Ingredients

    3 TBS Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki sauce
    1-1/2 TBS pure maple syrup
    1 TSP Liquid Smoke
    .33 pound eggplant, sliced but not peeled (I used a sort of elongated one, organic)

Directions

Following the A4R recipe, I covered a large cookie sheet with parchment and set the oven to 425-degrees F. I sliced the eggplant in half lengthwise, then cut each half in 1/8" slices, little half moons. I arranged them on my cookie sheet (it took 2 sheets to get them all in one layer) and lightly sprayed with cooking spray. I put them in the oven for about 10 minutes before they had begun to brown and were ready to flip over. I flipped them and baked them for another 5 minutes or so. I took them all out and transferred to a plate to cool while mixing the sauce.

I lowered the oven heat to 350. I dipped the slices into the sauce and placed them back on the parchment covered pans. This time all slices fit onto my largest cookie sheet in a single layer.

I baked them for longer than the suggested 3 minutes, because they were still pretty limp. I gave them 8 minutes, then turned off the heat and let them sit there while I wrote this recipe up, about 10 more minutes. They were nicely crispy then, so I put them on a Fiesta plate for their closeup.

6 crispy slices in a sandwich were perfect! They were flavorful and a perfect addition to a sandwich. They do tend to stick a bit to your teeth, though!
