Tempeh bacon is something I have been making for years. While it is very good and perfect in several situations, it lacks some of the bacon cache. While I do not remember the taste or texture of bacon, it seems to be that the tempeh is too dense and really lacks the texture and doesn't quite compare to the saltiness.
I wanted to try it another way. Ashley recommended I try to make a seitan based bacon. I gave it a whirl. The taste was not perfect but the texture was more like bacon (I think). We used it in some B.A.D. (breakfast and dinner) which we had not had in a long time. Breakfast and dinner is a term Kaleigh and I coined and one of her favorite meals.
We also used the bacon on a pizza the following night. It was pretty good then too! I still think I might prefer the tempeh version but I will continue to work on this recipe and see if I can get it a little better.
