Double Bacon Blast Potato Skinzz

Double Bacon Blast Potato Skinzz

Coconut Bacon.  I can tell you know that there will be a lot of Elvis-inspired sandwiches in my life now.  This is the closest thing I've tasted to bacon and it was super easy to make. I can't keep my hands off of it!  It's smoky, sweet and salty, and it's going to add a bit of umami to sandwiches, pasta and salads.

Check out this post on Vegan Good Things, it's where I discovered the recipe.  Next time I'll cook it a little longer, hers looks more brown and crispy.

Does anyone else totally miss T.G.I. Friday's, or is it just me?  It was such a funny place. My husband and I always got potato skins and big, hilarious cocktails. I also had a mild addiction to coconut shrimp.  I'll have to work on veganizing that! 

Anyway, potato skins sound good lately, so I tweaked this recipe.  I added green olives stuffed with garlic, cheddar and mozzarella Daiya cheese to potato skins and sprinkled them with bacos. (microwave the potatoes first, and then scoop out their guts with a melon baller and drizzle with olive oil) After cooking in a 400 degree pre-heated oven, I topped them with avocado, more bacon bits, a dollop of vegan sour cream or cream cheese, coconut bacon and salt and pepper.

They were so delicious!  I'm looking forward to making these again for an easy weeknight dinner.
