Mushroom Bacon

Smoky Mushroom Bacon

You know how all those burgers in restaurants seem to have bacon as an extra for the meaties and there is never something for us veggies?  Well, I discovered the wonders of mushroom bacon and am now a convert!  Not only is it super easy to make, it really lifts a burger to the next level with its smoky yet sweet flavour and chewy-ish texture.

Mushroom Bacon

Ingredients:

2 Portobello mushrooms sliced into 7 mm slices (this is enough for 4 burger toppings by the way)

2 tbsp maple syrup

200 ml liquid smoke

2 tbsp coconut oil

Mushroom Bacon

Method:

Slice the mushrooms and measure out the marinade into a dish which is big enough to old the mushrooms and stir to combine

Add the mushrooms and leave to marinate for at least 15 minutes, turning to make sure that every part of the mushroom gets coated and filled with flavour

Heat the coconut oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat

Add the mushroom slices and cook until they are starting to get crispy around the edges (this will be around 5-8 minutes each side)

Serve in sandwiches as a mushroom bacon butty, with lettuce and tomato or top a burger for that added extra lift

As I say, smoky mushroom bacon goes incredibly well paired with burgers ad guacamole – you can find some bean burger recipes here and here (this one has the mushroom bacon AND guacamole for that taste sensation!)

I know you’re going to love this too – especially with how quick it is! Oh and did I mention the delicious smell while it marinates?  That is worth it just for the little wait that you have wile it soaks up the goodies! Mmmmm, I am so glad I have some on my left overs for lunch today!

Enjoy!
