The Edgy Veg


Sausage Egg McMuffinThe sausage egg McMuffin–breakfast of champions for so many North Americans.
Personally, the Golden Arches just don’t cry out to me first thing in the morning, especially when something so simple can be made at home. The parts of this sandwich can be made ahead and kept in the fridge or freezer for a quick breakfast sandwich at home. Bonus points if you include a hashbrown on the side.

This vegan egg is made of mung beans, with some clever spices to give it a real “eggy flavour”.  Since that’s what JUST Egg is made of, I thought “why can’t it be done at home?” Spoiler alert: IT CAN! And it’s much more affordable and accessible too. But you could also use Just Egg foldable.

The homemade sausage recipe can be found here or you can use your favourite store-bought version. Just defrost the vegan sausage and form it into a perfectly round shape. Build this bad boy and see how easy it is to replicate these fast-food icons breakfast best seller! I’ll take this over McDonald’s any day.

  • Well, I tried it and it’s a no for me. Tastes like mung beans, nothing even remotely eggy about it. Love to try new things but this one didn’t cut it for me. Sorry!

  • Anthony says:

    my new go to breakfast for sure. I miss this from when I worked at mcds

  • Can you bake them instead? I’m hoping to make multiple at a time. Maybe by using cupcake pan?

    • EdgyVeg says:

      I haven’t tried that, but let me know how it turns out!

    • Heather says:

      I made this today and baked it in a parchment lined 9×13 at 350 for 20 mins. Now I can cut them into squares for our sandwiches.

    • Tanya says:

      Did you ever try this? Would be wonderful for meal prep!

  • Serena says:

    My partner made the egg part for dinner. To be honest, it’s pretty gross. I will eat most things (even out of politeness) but not this.

  • This rules

    • Nadia says:

      love this so much. I made a bunch and just kept them in a container in the fridge and heated them up in the morning with a freshly toasted english muffin. so perfect and easy.

  • Melinda Campanella says:

    Could I freeze the egg part of this recipe? Would it be better to cook it then freeze it, or freeze the batter?

  • Olivia says:

    What is “Vegg powder”?

    • It is an egg replacer!

      • Could you leave it out? I don’t have it in my area. I have a different egg replaceer could I use that?

        • The Vegg can be bought from their website just google “the Vegg” but it is basically black salt and nutritional yeast so if you up those ingredients that should do it. This is a grate recipe BTW. I use Gimme Lean sausages and Chao cheese and wrap the whole thing up in Ezekiel
          English muffins. Delish. Thanks!

  • This looks soo yummy! I used to work at McD’s over ten years ago…and looks like you’ve got some great technique there. lol
