The Vegan Sausage in this recipe is easy to make and ready to eat in less than 30 minutes. 

How to make vegan sausage: 

  1. Make a sausage flavored broth. For this breakfast sausage, I use seasonings like fennel, maple syrup, garlic, salt, and pepper.
  2. Rehydrate the textured vegetable protein in the broth.
  3. In a food processor, combine the rehydrated soy protein, mashed beans, flax, and oat flour.
  4. Form patties and either bake or cook on the stove-top.
  5. Make epic breakfast sandwich!

I hope you love this vegan recipe. Here are a few reasons I think it is so amazing:

  • Meal-prep friendly – prep the sausages and egg patties for a quick and easy breakfast all week!
  • Freezable in an air-tight container
  • Loaded with flavor!
  • High in plant-based protein
  • Easy to make!
The vegan sausage definitely shines in this recipe, but the vegan egg patty takes this breakfast sandwich to a whole new level. The seasoned tofu “egg” adds the spongy texture of egg in this sandwich that makes this vegan recipe resemble a McMuffin. However, this vegan version of the McMuffin is way way healthier and a million times better!

Vegan Sausage & Egg Muffin

  • Prep Time10 min
  • Cook Time20 min
  • Total Time30 min


For the Sausage

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 TBSP maple syrup
  • 2 TBSP low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1/2 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste (I used 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper)
  • Pinch of cayenne (optional)
  • 1 cup textured vegetable protein (TVP, see above for info)
  • 1 cup mashed chickpeas (or any bean or lentil)
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 cup flaxmeal

For the Tofu "Egg"

  • 1 block (14oz) Super Extra Firm Tofu (usually the one that comes in a vacuum-sealed package)
  • 2 tsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp water
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp nutritional yeast
  • Pepper to taste

For the Sandwich

  • English Muffins, toasted
  • Avocado
  • Vegan Cheese
  • Tomato
  • Hot sauce (like Sriracha)


Prepare the Sausage


In a medium-sized bowl, make a broth by combining all the sausage ingredients, except the TVP, chickpeas, oat flour, and flax meal.


Add the TVP to the broth and let sit for 5 minutes, until it absorbs the water. You can start the Tofu “Egg” while you wait.


Once the TVP rehydrates, transfer to a food processor, being careful not to add excess broth. Add the mashed chickpeas, oat flour, and flax meal. Pulse until well combined, but with some texture remaining.


Form the mixture into patties and heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat with a bit of oil. Once the pan is hot, cook the sausage patties 2-4 minutes on each side, until golden. If you prefer to bake the sausages, cook them on a lined baking sheet for 20 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Prepare the Tofu "Egg"


Slice the tofu into 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick pieces that will fit on your English muffins. Heat a pan to medium heat with the tofu slices.


Mix the remaining Tofu “Egg” ingredients in a bowl. Spoon half the mixture onto the tofu and spread it around to coat. Cook for 3-5 minutes, flip, spread on the remaining seasoning, then cook another 3-5 minutes. 

Assemble your Breakfast Sandwich


Toast the English muffins and prepare your toppings. 


Layer on the vegan sausage, tofu egg, and desired toppings. Enjoy immediately!
