First, this isn’t a healthy breakfast, but it’s definitely delicious. And this post is less of a recipe and more a list of assembly instructions. The key is not cooking but procurement. Once you have the ingredients, you can store them in the freezer and have a delicious breakfast sandwich in mere minutes!
Here we go!
- Bagels – I know you can get bagels anywhere (or make them yourself), but I am obsessed with the bagels from this vegan bakery in Gary, Indiana. They bake your order the morning they ship it to you. I keep them frozen, then defrost one in the microwave and toast it for this sandwich.
- Sausage – Lots of vegan sausage options exist, but the best is the Impossible sausage. The only place I’ve found to buy it is GTFO It’s Vegan. Shipping isn’t cheap, but I justify it since I’d spent about the same on grocery delivery fees + tip. It comes bulk in a big bag (packaged for commercial, not consumer use), so I repackage it into packs of two and four using my vacuum sealer then store it in the freezer.
- Eggs – The best vegan eggs for this sandwich are the Just folded eggs. They store in the freezer and are super simple to cook (even in the toaster!) You can get these in many grocery stores now, but if you’re ordering the impossible sausage anyway, you can just add the eggs to your order.
- Cheese – Miyokos makes a sliced cheddar now, which is delish, but use your favorite. I heat the egg and sausage in a skillet, then add the cheese to the top of the egg and put the sausage on top so that it melts a bit.
And that’s it! I butter the bagel and add a bit of ketchup. I add some avocado if I’ve got it and maybe some tomato and fresh basil. (This sandwich is also great with a biscuit instead of a bagel, if you happen to have any of those on hand.)
The only work involved is getting all of the ingredients in the freezer!
