Inspired by a previous tempura offering at a Japanese restaurant, I made these delicious morsels of salty and chewy. It’s bacon, what’s not to like!
I cut up each strip of bacon into 3 parts and wrapped each piece around a bunch of enoki and a few slices of rehydrated shitake mushrooms. You can see it here before they were baked in the oven.
At 400 degF in the oven for about 15-20 mins, they are ready. The bacon is not crisp and the mushrooms not burned. The tempura version is deep-fried [duh!].
These make really good finger food but we had it for dinner with rice and veggies.
