Look, it isn't a secret that the cost of living is skyrocketing... 

Luckily for us, TikTok could be here to save us a few dollars.

The latest trend going around on the platform is a hack to turn your banana peels into bacon, and if that helps us take a little off the grocery bill, we're willing to give it a crack.

How to make the viral banana peel bacon recipe

Here’s what you’ll need to make the recipe:

  • 3-4 bananas, peeled into 4 strips each
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp garlic powder

To start, mix the soy sauce, syrup, paprika and garlic powder to make a marinade. Then, toss your banana peels in a bowl to coat them in the sauce. Let them sit for 10 minutes.

Next, heat oil in a pan and fry the peels at medium heat, until they’re gold and crispy on the outside. Set the peels aside on a paper towel to dry for a few minutes before trying them.

Legit though, if you catch us doing this don't say anything. Those petrol prices ain't no joke!
