Thank you for joining us in the kitchen! Share what you think of our new feature, Expand the Table, suggesting substitutions to allow more folks to enjoy the recipe.

Our new Foodie Lit review is of S. L. Dwyer’s Depression/Dust Bowl novel, Dirt, a story of grit and determination. “It was a time where the true strength and grit of Americans was tested.”

ELT'S: Eggplant "Bacon," Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich

BLT’s just make our mouths drool.


What happens if you don’t eat bacon?  Perhaps you’re vegan, vegetarian or kosher.  Or want to avoid the high fat.


Here is a great, delicious plant based substitute.  The smoked paprika and liquid smoke are the key ingredients here, which mimic the smoky flavor and crisp texture of bacon.

Use as an ELT or with morning eggs or in a salad. Yummy and healthy.
