Carrot Bacon

plate of carrot bacon

I make a larger batch than the recipe calls for or I eat it all and have to start over. This way I can eat it and still have some for the recipe. Yes, it really is that good. You’ll see.

Carrot Strips

Preheat oven to °350, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Wash 2 large, thick carrots. Peel them and cut off the ends. If they are pretty long, cut them in half. Now using a vegetable peeler (Make sure it’s sharp) hold the carrot tight in one hand and peeling with the other. Try to get as many as you can and as wide as you can. *Note This takes a wee bit of practice, but don’t worry, will still be delicious! Place carrot strips in medium bowl. Next, in a small bowl mix together 2 tbls oil, 2 tbls maple syrup, 1 tsp liquid smoke, freshly ground pepper and 1/4 tsp garlic powder. Whisk it good and dump it over the carrot strips. Toss till all carrot strips are evenly coated. *NOTE(Don’t put salt in the mix, it pull the liquid out of the carrots and dilutes the brine.) Place carrot strips so they are not touching on baking sheet and sprinkle very lightly with smoked sea salt. Bake at °350 for roughly 10 minutes, Less or more depending. You will have to cook your bacon in batches, but I’m fairly certain you won’t have any left from the first batch when the second one is done :p yum!
