I look forward to Sunday brunch all week long. (I can’t help it. I love the savory-sweet offerings of a late morning meal.) Usually it’s some variation of the classic pancake theme, but this week I was craving something different. I wanted a savory, decadent, somewhat healthy vegan breakfast muffin… and this spur-of-the-moment creation turned out to be just that.
Vegan “McMuffin” Recipe – A Cruelty-Free Brunch
- 2 gluten-free English muffins (A lot of them are *not* vegan, so make sure to check for eggs/dairy.)
- 1 avocado, sliced
- Cherry or Roma tomatoes, sliced
- Fresh cilantro, for garnish + flavor
- Hilary’s breakfast sausages (I bought both flavors: Apple Maple and Spicy) or any other veggie burger brand
- 2 slices of Follow Your Heart cheese (I used Gouda, but any flavor would work.)
- 1/2 baked sweet potato*
*Bake sweet potato for 1 hour at 450 F in skin in the center of your oven. Slice an “X” shape on either side of your potato before cooking.
- Toast the gluten-free English muffins in your oven at 350 F for about 5 minutes.
- Once the muffin is toasted, cut in half and place a slice of vegan cheese on each muffin. Place back in oven to toast for another 5 minutes.
- Once the cheese is melted to your liking, take the muffin out and place each on a plate.
- Assemble the sweet potato, avocado, veggie sausage, tomato, and cilantro between your two slices of English muffin.
