Thank you, Dana! By the way, there they were brushed, but I decided to dip. Because my slices may own got been wetter, they did accept agency longer to cook.

Personal gustation existence what it is, you’ll own got to experiment amongst non exclusively your sweet-salty-smoky cistron ratios, but likewise amongst how thick you lot cutting your eggplant, equally good equally how long you lot laid it. I went for sparse as well as crispy, but it was closer to a bbq spud chip inwards taste/texture than bacon. I may spell it thicker side yesteryear side time, as well as encounter if I tin sack larn around chewy bits, woven through the crispy bits.

These would brand for around tasty vegetable chips, but were peculiarly enjoyable inwards a BLT, which I inexplicably didn’t photo. I blame depression blood sugar. Regardless of how you lot bask them, I actually practise promise you lot order this eggplant “bacon” a endeavour soon. Enjoy!
