Using the Liquid Hickory Smoke from Mex-Al
is the best way to make anything taste extra "meaty" I find!
You can make "bacon"-bits by frying some potato-bits in a frying pan,
using a generous amount of vegan butter,
and adding in a few splotches of the Liquid Hickory Smoke.
I prefer to peel the potatoes and boil them first, before frying them;
this way they're soft on the inside and crispy on the outside!
It also works great in tacos to make the mince extra "meaty" flavoured.
Don't use more than a few splotches in each dish tho, it's very powerful stuff!
