Something that we ate a lot before going vegan was the English Muffin sandwich from McDonald’s. It has sausage, cheddar cheese and an egg on top. They were fast easy and filling. Thankfully we have stopped eating these fast-food meals and have started to create our own vegan meals. That is one thing that I love about being vegan, we don’t shy away from food, we just find new and adventurous ways to recreate something so it’s better.

Our English Muffins are generally not the same each time, we love variety. As a staple, we generally follow these simple rules to keep them not only basic but toaster oven ready straight from the freezer too. Yes, we make our own frozen breakfast meals.

1. English Muffins can either be purchased or you can go ahead and make your own. Isa Chandra made a wonderful English Muffin recipe that can not be beat! You can find this recipe in her Vegan Brunch Cookbook.  We have made these little tasty treats about a million times and they are never disappointing. Note: Try browning them in coconut oil instead of olive oil, it gives them much more taste. Yum!!!

2. Vegan Cheddar Cheese: Sometimes we do leave this out but generally speaking we do tend to have it around the house so it goes in to the mixture. I love Love Your Heart Vegan Cheddar Cheese. If you are looking for a cheese in your area, try to make sure that there is no Casein added to the cheese. Simply slice the vegan cheese and you have a wonderful vegan cheese slice.

3. Vegan Sausage Patties: We have tried many different types of sausage here in the morning. We are not specific which type is best but the two that we generally have around the household is the Gimme Lean Vegan Ground Sausage that comes in something like a tube. It can be purchased just about anywhere. Just take a serrated knife and slice right through the plastic. Take the plastic off and place the patty in the frying pan. Cutting it without the plastic on is rather sticky and can make a mess of your hands if you try to make a patty in your palm. I them just press it down with the back of a wooden spoon.

Or: Lately I have been making my own Homemade Vegan Sausage Patties. I love the smoked smell that they give off when you eat them up in the sandwich.

4. Tofu Omelet: My own recipe Tofu Omelet works great! This is really easy to make and can be frozen for a few months without worrying about the flavor or texture changing. Note: When making sandwich worthy omelets, pour about ¼ cup on the frying pan at a time. It should look like a pancake. If you do it this way, you will have the omelet fit on top of the English muffin perfectly.

I personally love to make everything on the weekend and then freeze leftovers. We tend to not purchase processed products in our household, especially for breakfast. This keeps down the sodium level and processed ingredients in our foods we consume.

1. Simple place a sausage patty, vegan cheddar slice and tofu omelet on a homemade English Muffin.
2. Wrap in parchment paper and tape closed. Wrap with plastic wrap.
3. Place in the freezer with a label and date.
