Bacon!?! lettuce and tomato sandwiches

Tonight we had one of our favorite sandwich dinners - tofu bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato on toasted sourdough bread. I've served these many times to other kids when they've been over - kids who actually eat bacon - and everyone loves them. Seriously. I mean when you think about it - a slice of plain pig fat probably doesn't have a whole lot of flavor right? It's the salty smoky taste that people like. Well you can add those flavorings to tofu and get a pretty darn good "bacon" out of it.

We had our sandwiches with some organic strawberries and mango (I love those small ataulfo mangoes). The berries weren't bad for being so early in the season. They are nothing like the strawberries yet to come though.

How exactly do you make the tofu bacon? I'll be honest, the fake tempeh bacon doesn't really thrill me a whole lot, plus it's very expensive.

Do you marinate, slice, and fry? Do tell. :)
