Vegan Double Downs

So you may be aware of the KFC Double Down. It's a bacon and cheese sandwich with chicken breasts instead of buns. Tony and I decided the vegan community shouldn't be left out from such a disgusting part of our culture, so we created vegan double downs.

We realized after a little googling that we were not the first to come up with this idea. It's rather like Leibniz and Newton simultaneously inventing calculus.

Below, step-by-step photo instructions for making your own.

The two geniuses

Vegan cheese is pretty unappetizing.  And grey.

We used Vegansaurus's advice for making the sauce.  
You can read it here.

The corn is not part of the recipe.  Unless you can think up
a use for it...  Also, how funny is the fake, white fat on soy bacon?

And now a confession: I didn't actually eat it! I was super-full from eating a bunch of chips and watermelon, and I set it down, wandered away, and much later came back and saw it had been eaten by someone else.  I was relieved.  But Tony and others said it was actually quite good!

  1. That is hilarious, Liz! I wish you had tried it, though. Not sure I would go through the trouble to make one. Especially with the grey cheese. But I've always thought the white fake fat on the fake bacon is funny too!
