Louisville Vegan Paulette's Maple Bacon Maple Bacon Description
Keep it Fake
Hand-Bagged Vegan Jerky
Made in USA
Louisville Vegan Jerky Company was started in my home kitchen back in 2012. Having spent some time in Oahu as a child, I was craving manapua. Using my mom's old recipe, I substituted baked soy for the pork and popped my seasoned protein in the oven. I was busy preparing the dough and chatting with friends when the smell of chargrilled meat hit my nose. "Toe-y!" I screamed at my three-legged dog, Tofu "I forgot to set a timer!" The barbecued soy protein was overdone, super chewy, and absolutely delicious. Tofu agreed. I headed straight to the local bar where I passed around bags of my newly discovered jerky to a full patio of hip Louisville beer drinkers. Within minutes, everyone was as excited as I was. They devoured the fortuitous first batch and asked for more. Where could they buy it? What was it called? And the best part...none of them even knew it was vegan. Today, Louisville Vegan Jerky is sold in stores all over America, but we still make each bag the same old way - in small batches, by hand, and with freshly sourced Kentucky ingredients. It's a difference you can taste and a cruelty-free, American-made product that we're proud to call our own. One bite and you'll agree, fake has never tasted so real. So grab a beer and join us, there's plenty to go around.

“Cheesy” Scalloped Potato Casserole with Broccoli
You like potato and he likes potahto, but before you call the whole thing off, consider a dish that appeals to all kinds of potato lovers. Served as a meatless main course or as a hearty side dish, this “cheesy” scalloped potato casserole will end squabbles – you’ll be too busy devouring the creamy-cheese-covered broccoli and potato to do much of anything else. Once you’ve cleared your plate and filled your belly, you can move on to the tomato or tomahto discussion. Creamy tomato basil soup will help settle the score.
