The 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.

For the Sandwich:
KITCHEN EQUIPMENT I USED:
- ½ cup yellow lentils / mung beans (soaked overnight, drained and rinsed)
- 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
- ½ tsp turmeric
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp fine black salt
- ½ of a 14 oz package soft tofu, drained
- 1 tsp cornstarch
- Using your food processor or blender, blend mungbeans or lentils, nutritional yeast, turmeric, garlic powder, black salt, soft tofu, and cornstarch. Scraping down the sides as needed. Add water if it needs help blending.
- Preheat a large, skillet over medium-high heat, with a small amount of oil or vegan butter, and grease a round egg ring, pastry ring, or the ring of a mason jar.
- Place the ring onto the skillet, and scoop the egg batter into it.
- Cover the ring / skillet pan for about 5 minutes, or until the top of the batter look slightly dry.
- Meanwhile, heat your sausage, and toast your English muffins.
- When the underside of the egg develops light brown marks, flip it, top with cheese and cook for a couple more minutes.
- Top one-half of the English muffin with sausage, and top with the cheese-covered egg.
- Add ketchup or hot sauce if you want, then top with the second half of the muffin.
