Let's rewind. What in the world is eggplant bacon? It's thinly sliced eggplant that's flavored with soy sauce, maple syrup, paprika and liquid smoke and roasted until crispy. The flavor combination mimics that same savory umami punch that you get with real pork bacon. And thanks to the liquid smoke (which is readily available at most grocery stores), it tastes just as smoky too!
