Vegan Bacon Recipe – Mushroom Bacon Recipe

Prep: 5 mins – Cook: 25 mins – Total: 30 mins


  • 8 ounces king oyster mushrooms
  • 3 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon real maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper (optional)


  1. Chop the mushroom caps off and carefully slice the king oyster mushrooms to about 1/6th inch slices. Next, preheat oven to 400F degrees. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, add and combine the canola oil, maple syrup, smoked paprika, salt, and black pepper.
  3. Brush and evenly coat the mushroom pieces with the sauce combination on both sides.
  4. Then, lay each mushroom piece onto the parchment paper, leaving space in between each piece (do not crowd). Bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway. Keep a close eye. Cook time may depend on the thickness of the strips and your oven. Once the edges begin to darken, they are done.
  5. To air fry, cook at 400 degrees F for 6-8 minutes.
  6. Finally, remove mushroom bacon slices from the oven and allow the pieces to sit and crisp up for at least 5 minutes before serving.
