Vegan Breakfast Sandwich Recipe

Who doesn’t like sandwiches? For a long time I didn’t, but all it takes it getting the right ingredients together. 😉 For this breakfast-sandwich-inspired dish, the bacon flavor comes from the whole grain bread, Vegemite, and onion, while the egg is substituted for avocado. Every ingredient plays a part to make this a tasty and healthy morning start. Eat it with a glass of almond milk and piece of fruit (I recommend a grapefruit or orange). Enjoy!

Ingredients (Makes 2 Sandwiches)

  • 4 pieces vegan whole grain bread (Franz Organic offers a lot of vegan options)
  • 2 leaves of romaine lettuce
  • 1 avocado (or half of a giant avocado)
  • 2 pearl tomatoes
  • 1/2 small yellow onion
  • 1/6 slice of lemon
  • Vegemite
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Rinse the lettuce leaves and vertically break them in half; set aside. Cut the avocado in half and peel the skin off. Thinly slice and set aside. Rinse the tomatoes and chop the tops off. I chose pearl tomatoes, because the seeds and center can be squeezed out. After the seeds are removed, slice the tomato in thirds. If they’re not pretty slices, that’s okay. Mine aren’t either. Set aside. Lastly, slice the onion so that it forms long, thin pieces.

Drizzle some water into a small pot or skillet and begin cooking the onion. Season with the lemon slice, salt, and pepper. Now start toasting the toast to desired toastiness. ʕ·ᴥ·ʔ

Sautee until onion is translucent, and then remove from pot or skillet.

For the brave, spread Vegemite on the toast, but do remember this is an important step for the bacon taste. I had no idea how much to put on (Lindsey said it’s powerful), and it was difficult to spread.

Looks like burnt spots, haha.

 

Next, assemble the sandwiches! Evenly divide the lettuce, avocado, tomato, and onion onto the two sandwiches.

Season the avocado with salt and pepper to makes its flavor pop. Now squish it together and enjoy your vegan breakfast sandwich!

Behind the Scenes (AKA How Unprofessional is MJ?)

I wasn’t holding the avocado correctly when slicing it and cut my finger (nothing bloody, just a mini stab wound). The only time I’ve ever cut myself was with a butter knife, and I was in elementary or middle school. Lesson to be learned: even the cute and harmless ones can cut deep. Or is it “be careful knives”?

Cookie is now the only other American I know that likes Vegemite. She really likes it.

This was my sandwich, I promise I didn’t give it to anyone else. I banned her from the kitchen a thousand times before she finally left me alone to work.

Until the sandwich was done.

    1. Does he love Vegemite? 😂 And it’s a really interesting flavor. Thank you for reading. You should try this sometime! The only thing is that avocados can be on the pricey side…

      1. Yeah seriously!! I don’t buy avocados cause they’re a little weird shaped ball of gold basically. Also sometimes the pit is like 90% of the avocado so it feels like it’s just a big f you. You gotta go live in california and grow a tiny avocado tree farm in your backyard. I’ll come visit sometimes 😉

  1. so cute! actually making me crave avocados right now, which is crazy since I’ve just recently developed a liking for them this past year (I know, insane right, coming from a CA kid!) Vegemite and cats! Who woulda’ thunk it?! Bacon-y flavor, you say? Interesting! But what is it, exactly? A veggie? A protein (like a soy-based something-or-other)? Chickpeas? Oh, wait, that’s hummus…. never mind…

    1. Oh my goodness, me too! I’d heard wonders about avocados, yet only revently gave them a chance to wow last month… and I’m hooked. 😍 I’ve read that Vegemite is fermented yeast, though what “fermented” means is escaping me. Doesn’t sound too delicious, but I like it! Vegemite is full of B vitamins too.

  2. fermentation is what makes sourdough bread “sour” and the fermentation process is used in the making of certain (if not all) alcoholic beverages… like when apple cider ferments, that’s when it becomes “hard” cider… I’m not an expert, but that’s my ‘simple’ understanding.
    I went to Costco last night (hee) – my son and I had Costco hot dogs for dinner! – and I picked up some avocados. I literally just had half of one 20 minutes ago for “lunch” along with some salad and fresh moz cheese. It was delish, if not a little under ripe…
    Now every time I have avo’s I’ll think of MJ and Lindsey (and my uncle Sonny, who had a grove of avo trees when I was a kid…)!
