Picture of Faux bacon fail?
an experiment to make faux bacon failed as bacon but was a success as a smokey crunchy snack

Step 1: WHY?

Picture of WHY?
Why attempt to make faux bacon? Several reasons actually, my sister who is an accomplised cook and pastry chef was discussing a meal that had bacon but one of her guests was allergic to bacon (how horrible is THAT?) and she wanted something to replace the smokey taste and the crunch. For my own purposes, I need to cut back on my sodium intact to help keep my blood pressure down, it's more difficult than it sounds because salt like fat is FLAVOR or at least enhances flavors
 
I think egg roll wrappers fried up might be a closer texture.

I love the "Hail Bacon" photo.

In Portland, my friends and family have a tradition for the last three years that every July 5th we have a "States of Bacon" day. I airbrush temporary tattoos that are bacon inspired, and we cook so much bacon that none of us can finish it all. And that's a LOT!

Oh, and we take naps.

LOL Most of my family has high cholesterol so bacon is usually a nono, But it has be fun to eat anything that tasty until you pass out. Eggroll wrappers aren't a usual item in my pantry so I didn't consider them, but they sound like a good possibility. Thank you for the comment
