Vegan MoFo 2013 Day 1: Vegan "Egg" McMuffins

The month of Vegan Food is upon us.  Yay, Vegan MoFo!  All this month, vegans from all over the world will be blogging about all things vegan food related.  I'm going to be focusing on being a chaotic, busy, yet lazy mom.  Do what you know.

This month I'll just be blogging about our daily life.  What do we eat for dinner, pack for the kids snack & lunch, how do we handle birthday parties, meal planning, etc.

 Let's start off the Vegan Month of Food with the most important meal of the day, Breakfast!  I'll be honest,  my usual breakfast is an Almond Milk Latte with Agave and a banana as I'm running out the door.  Silas likes a bagel with Tofutti Cream Cheese and Shae usually opts for grits or pancakes (homemade, but made ahead and frozen).  We're lazy, creatures of habit.

But sometimes on weekends, we actually are awake enough to care what we eat first thing.  Not too long ago, one of our local Publix's started carrying Gardein Breakfast Patties and that just meant one thing to us, Faux Egg McMuffins!  We haven't been able to buy any premade vegan sausage patties here locally in years.  We still dream of the days when Publix Greenwise Sausages were vegan.  Those were the days!

These were simple and just amazing.  English Muffins (check labels, some are vegan but lots aren't!), Gardein Breakfast Patty, Tofutti American Cheese Slice (old school, and just right), and sauteed tofu flavored with turmeric, onion powder, garlic powder, black salt & pepper.  Soooooo satisfying.

I'm planning on making these again in a big batch to have in the fridge for quick breakfasts.

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. How about you come on over tomorrow morning and make me one of these? :) xo

I like your idea of making the sandwiches to freeze for quick breakfasts later. I need to get rolling on stocking the freezer with muffins for school-morning breakfasts!
