Ingredients
  • 2 Large Eggplants
  • 1 pound thick-cut, hickory smoked bacon
  • 1 TSP Salt (to wick moisture out of eggplant)
  • Salt & fresh ground pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Wash and pat eggplant dry. Slice into ½ inch round slices.
  2. Arrange the slices on a baking sheet lined with a paper towel. Sprinkle the 1 tsp. salt over the tops of the eggplant slices. Cover with another paper towel, and let sit for 30 minutes. Wipe the moisture off the slices, and discard the paper towels.
  3. Wrap each slice of eggplant with a piece of bacon. Place on the baking sheet, and sprinkle with a dash of salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F, for 30 minutes (depending on thickness of bacon) until bacon is sizzling and both bacon and eggplant are slightly browned.
  5. (Optional) Crisp under broiler for 1-2 minutes.
  6. Cut each slice into quarters and serve.
