Seitan Bacon

Seitan Bacon created by jweber0205

Nummy nums! This looks like bacon and even smells like it when cooking. I'm having fun making different seitan(or gluten) recipes. This fulfills that craving I have once in a while for the taste of bacon, without the meat, fat and nitrates. In order to make this recipe ”look” like bacon you will need to make two separate seitan doughs, one red and one white. Layering them and then slicing makes it look like bacon!

directions

  • Mix the doughs up and form into balls, each one separately.
  • Break the red dough into 4 pieces and the white dough into 3-4 pieces. Flatten each piece and layer alternating colors on top of each other. This is your time to be creative. Once you have a big block of dough lay it on an oiled cutting board. Place another cutting board/saran wrap on top. Press your dough for at least 30 minutes.
  • After your dough has been pressed bake at 300F for 45 minutes. Your seitan will be a bit undercooked but this is what you want. It makes it easier to slice and it will pan-fry better.
  • Slice into bacon strips and pan fry to the desired crispness you like. Enjoy!

    This recipe looks great but I don't see where it says how to bake the seitan. Is it wrapped in foil in any way, should it be pressed while baking or just put it on a baking sheet without any wrapping? Thank you. I am anxious to try it.

    Actually amazing. I don't normally sign up to random sites to comment but this was absolutely delicious. Agree with the previous comment about upping the liquid smoke slightly. I think I might actually add a little more salt or soy sauce too for that bacon saltyness. As it stands it's more like a sweet cure. Really good though and beats the expensive health food store stuff hands down.

    I made this a few weeks ago & it was really delicious & easy to make. I am definitely going to make this again, but will add more liquid smoke. I also will layer it a bit thicker & bake it for a few less minutes.

    This was so easy to make and tasty. I made the recipe exactly as stated but have to confess that I am not at all artistic so my streaks didn't look as good as the OPs!!??. For anyone who may be interested I cut it into strips when it came out of the oven (before frying) and froze them as there are only two of us in the house now! They fry well from frozen. Thanks for a lovely recipe.
