Fauxtato Skin Recipe

The next obvious question after I’ve let the cat out of the bag about Paleo, is what do I eat and more importantly what do I do when I get a craving for a snack?  My response is I JERF (Just, Eat, Real, Food)! Jerf is basically making sure that even if you aren’t going to be 100% paleo (i.e. eating dairy, which is debatable on if it’s paleo or not) that you are eating the best food possible.  This eggplant dish is one of my favorite snacks/meals that cut out some of the cravings for my favorite foods like potato chips, french fries and salty fatty treats.

  • 1 Medium Sized Eggplant
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • Grassfed Cheese
  • 4 Green Onions
  • Bacon ( I use duck bacon)
  • 2-3 tablespoons Avocado Oil (or Olive Oil, or non-corn /soy based oil of your choice)

Tools Needed:
  • Grater
  • Knife
  • Baking/Cookie Sheet

  • Preheat your oven at 350°C
  • Slice eggplant into rounds (the thinner the slice the more crispy and the shorter cooking time)
  • Rub both sides of the eggplant with oil, and place on to baking sheet
  • Sprinkle a small amount of Garlic powder onto top of each eggplant round
  • Bake for 15 minutes (may do more or less depending on how thin your rounds are)
  • While eggplant is baking, cook bacon until almost crispy and crumble
  • Remove eggplant from oven and grate cheese on top of each round
  • Sprinkle top of each eggplant with crumbled bacon
  • Bake for another 5 minutes, then ENJOY!
