The easiest mushroom bacon. Vegan. Gluten free.

Apparently today is both national sweet potato AND chili day.  Figures, I go ahead and share a mushroom bacon recipe.  My luck… a day late and a dollar short.  (insert smirk)

Now onto this recipe.  I’ve vacillated on this pic.  I love it, I hate it.  Regardless, these babies were gone within minutes.  Let me begin by telling you that I hate mushrooms.  The texture.  The flavor.  No. Just no!  Well, that is until we are out eating vegan and mushroom bacon keeps popping up & I realize how much I love it.  So here is my super easy, crazy tasty and no weird texture mushroom bacon recipe.  I hope you leave your fear of the fungi at the door and give this recipe a whirl.  Okay, let’s go!
