Breakfast Muffin Sandwich

  By Kris Giovanini  

October 26, 2015

We have it on good authority that this tastes like the breakfast sandwich offered at a fast food chain. We're just loving the compassion!


1 package extra-firm tofu, drained (anywhere from a 10 oz. to a 16 oz. package is fine. If you use a 14 to 16 oz. block of tofu, you can make 6 breakfast sandwiches)

2 T apple cider vinegar, preferably raw and unfiltered

2 T extra virgin olive oil

½ tsp. salt

¼ tsp. turmeric

fresh ground pepper

English muffins, 1 per person (we use Rudi’s brand)

Tofutti brand or other vegan cheese slices, 1 slice per muffin (we use American)

2 slices vegan bacon strips or 1 slice vegan Canadian bacon

coconut oil


In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, vinegar, salt and turmeric together and set it aside.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Cut the pressed tofu lengthwise in half. Using a large mason jar lid or cup, cut two large circles out of the tofu. Slice each tofu circle in half again lengthwise so you have four tofu circles. (Or, if you don't care if the tofu is round, slice the tofu in half lengthwise and then in half so you'll have four equal size pieces).

Place the tofu (and the extra tofu scraps if you make circles) on a baking sheet.

Pour the olive oil and vinegar mixture on top of the tofu. Top with freshly grated pepper.

Cook the tofu at 425 degrees for 10 minutes, then turn the tofu over and cook another 10 minutes.

For each breakfast sandwich, cut an English muffin in half and brush both sides of the muffin with softened coconut oil. You can substitute vegan butter for the coconut oil if desired.

Cook the vegan bacon according to package directions.

Using the same pan, lightly brown the muffin halves, oiled side down.

To assemble the breakfast sandwich, place a slice of vegan cheese on top of a toasted English muffin half. Place a piece of tofu on top of the cheese, followed by the the vegan bacon.

If desired, add a slice of tomato, top with the remaining muffin half and enjoy.

Once cooked, the tofu will make 4 english muffin sandwiches. If you just want to make one sandwich, refrigerate the remaining cooked tofu and use it to make breakfast sandwiches throughout the week. Or, enjoy it on whole grain bread with vegan mayo and mustard. .If mornings are too rushed, make the breakfast sandwiches the night before. Once assembled, wrap each sandwich in parchment paper and put in the refrigerator. The next morning (or whenever you want to eat), heat each sandwich (in the paper) in the microwave for 30 to 40 seconds or until warm. You can also warm them in the oven if you have more time.

    Where can I get vegan Canadian bacon

    • Hi Doreen, You can usually find vegan Canadian bacon in many natural grocery stores such as Whole Foods and Vitamin Cottage, or stores like Nooch Vegan Market in Denver. You can also buy the product online from a number of sites including Vegan Essentials.
