Veg Eats: Bacon, Egg & Cheese

I waited to share this recipe until I achieved the taste and consistency I’ve always looked for in vegetarian bacon, “egg”, and cheese breakfast sandwiches. Back in the day, I loved to pick up a classic breakfast bagel sandwich at a street cart on my way to work. But since giving meat up 2.5 years ago, I’ve had a hard time finding a vegetarian version that is just as tasty and satisfying. But now, I think I’ve found it. And the best thing is, you can make this one at home.

The most important step in making this sandwich is to freeze a block of tofu (I always cut my blocks into three sections long ways since they are pretty thick blocks). The night before you plan to make your sandwich, put the tofu in the fridge to thaw overnight. Freezing tofu helps thicken up the consistency and it holds up better when being cooked.

These are all the ingredients and I use. The only non-vegan item in this bunch is the cheese, which you can easily swap out for vegan cheese. Pictured here is an everything bagel, spinach, mushrooms, smart bacon (it’s vegan!), extra firm tofu, turmeric, smoked paprika, garlic salt, and Sargento swiss cheese.

Here’s how to make it:

  1. I first start by cutting my tofu into a round by using the top edge of a glass. You don’t have to do this step, but I find that the tofu fits better on the bagel this way.
  2. Add some Earth Balance butter to your pan, and once it’s melted add in the tofu. On each side, I sprinkle garlic salt, turmeric, and smoked paprika. I’ve never measured out how much I put on because you can do this step to taste. Cook each side for a minute or so, until there’s a little browning on each side (my preference).
  3. Start toasting the bagel.
  4. Add some more butter, two strips of smart bacon, and mushrooms and cook until finished then turn off the heat. Add a slice of cheese to the tofu and let it melt.
  5. Butter each side of the bagel (another important step to make it tasty) then start building your sandwich! I lay down spinach first, then the tofu with cheese, mushrooms, and bacon.

And that’s it! A super simple vegetarian version of the bacon, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich. If you end up making this, do let me know! I’d love to know what your tastebuds thought.

  • Day two of a fever and bad cold. I’m not a fan of being down and out. Makes me feel unproductive and like I’m getting behind. The only thing I’m catching up on is more episodes of Call the Midwife. 🤷🏼‍♀️

  • Ideal Friday afternoon.

It’s funny...the more flexibility I’ve had with my schedule since working from home, the more productive I am and the happier I am. Since I work in a creative field, I think it’s pretty much essential to have a flexible schedule rather than be chained to a desk 10 hours a day. Helps me produce better work. Would you ever want to #workfromhome?
  • Today I'm stopping work early to go see my nephews! AH can't wait to hug them, be silly with them, and spend some time out on the water tomorrow for an early Father's Day celebration. Kids are the best, especially when they're not your own and you get the easy fun  parts. Ammiright?? PS - This is Sunny, aka SunBun. And yes, I'm constantly singing "you are my sunshine" to him on repeat. all day. every day.

  • I started traveling with Jax after having a panic attack in the Philadelphia airport. I was that person crying in the corner with a bag of McDonald's nuggets, desperately trying to calm down. Not my best look lol. So this dude has become my travel companion and is just the sweetest snuggler there ever was. Do you travel with your dog?
