A Mushroom That Tastes Like Bacon?

  People don’t like mushrooms. OK, not all people, but a lot of people. If you’re one of those mushroom haters, I’d imagine your distaste for this fungi has mostly do with texture. Yeah, mushrooms can turn into slimy sponge cakes pretty fast. And if you’re not really into squishy, squeak, squirmy foods, mushrooms might not have a future as a cuisine staple for you. But I’m hoping what you’re about to see will change your mind. Because I have a recipe that’ll take mushrooms (well, one certain kind) and transforms it into bacon.

Breakfast isn’t unhealthy...but it’s also not the keystone to a...
