Behold! a BLT! er, a TLT! ...with avocado... ok, so a TLAT! (tee-laa-tee). i like that:
i cannot remember the last BLT i had, but i fondly recall the perfect combination of salty and crunchy and sweet. for some reason, i found myself thinking of BLTs... and i knew i had to make myself some bacon. i have already learned to use lapsang souchong in lieu of liquid smoke, so i felt as though this was an accomplishable mission. indeed it was.
tofu was sliced and pressed and soaked in:
brewed lapsang souchong (how much? er, a cup-ish? i think?)
splash of worcestershire sauce
i left the tofu soaking for the majority of the day.
next, it was gingerly placed on a baking sheet, peppered, and baked at 200 for roughly 40 minutes.
BACON! no, it doesnt taste like bacon. but it has the irresistible sweet/salty/crunchy taste.
after toasting my (XL!*) bread, i spread on some avocado, and piled on lettuce, and tomato, and a few slices of tofu bacon.
*XL = team USA regular sized sandwich bread. ha ha ha.
