I’m going to show you how to meal prep twelve of these bad boys. They are freezer friendly, and easy to heat up and take with you out the door.
It’s a tiny bit of time up front, but then you have breakfast all prepped and ready to go every morning. These breakfast sandwiches are also ridiculously easy to make
Tips for making this breakfast sandwich
It’s really easy to find Split yellow mung beans online. You can also find them at Indian grocery stores if you have one near you. Mung beans are high in fiber and have zero cholesterol so they make a super healthy vegan egg replacement.
- It’s important to stock your pantry with black salt, if you’re craving those eggy, savory breakfasts. Black salt is also easy to buy online and is really affordable. It will give vegan breakfasts that eggy, sulfur flavor.
- Gardein and Beyond Meat have my favorite vegan sausage breakfast patties so if you can find them, I recommend using one of those brands
- If you don’t want to use vegan meat alternatives, you can use button mushrooms instead. Just slice them up and saute them with some olive oil and soy sauce. Mushrooms are an amazing meat alternative.
- You can also skip the vegan breakfast sausage all together and just have a vegan egg and cheese sandwich, but the sausage patty is what really brings this all together.
- Make sure that you soak your mung beans overnight. You’re not going to cook them and then blend them, only soak them. I made the mistake of cooking the beans and then trying to blend them. You don’t want to cook the beans until after you blend them with all the other ingredients and then you bake them.
Can I store these in the freezer
Absolutely. This is a breakfast meal prep recipe so you will be making enough for 2 weeks of breakfasts. These breakfast sandwiches freeze really well. Just make sure to wrap them up well in tin foil and then put them in a freezer friendly bag
To be more environmentally friendly, store these in a reusable freezer friendly bag like this one.

Vegan breakfast sandwich
Vegan egg ingredients
- 1 cup dry yellow split mung beans (Also called moong dal- soaked over night)
- 1 cup aquafaba (the water from a can of chickpeas – separate the water from the chickpeas and save your chickpeas to use in a chickpea salad sandwich or some other recipe later on.)
- ½ cup water (in addition to the 1 cup of aquafaba or water)
- 2 tbsp vegan butter or neutral oil
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- ¼ tsp turmeric – optional (this just adds color)
- 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
- ½ tsp black salt (optional but will give this an eggy flavor)
- 12 vegan breakfast sausage patties (Gardein and Beyond Meat have great ones)
- 12 whole wheat English muffins (- make sure they're not made with eggs)
- 12 Vegan cheese slices (Violife, Miyokos and Chao are my favorite)
- Make the eggs first
- Soak your mung beans in water over night. Drain and rinse the next day
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
- Place all of the ingredients in the “Vegan Egg Ingredients” section in a blender.
- Blend for at least 1-2 minutes to give the aquafaba time to thicken
- Oil your 12 cup muffin tin (or large lipped baking sheet
- Pour the egg mixture from the blender into the muffin tin (or large, lipped baking sheet)
- Bake for 25 minutes (or until the middle is cooked all the way through) Take out of oven and let sit for 5 minutes before removing from the tin.
- Put a pan on medium heat and melt some vegan butter or oil
- Sprinkle tops with a tiny bit more of the black salt if you want a more pronounced eggy flavor. These taste best when they’ve sat for 5-10 minutes after taking them out of the muffin tin
- Assemble the sandwich
- Sauté the vegan breakfast patties until lightly browned. Set aside
- You can either assemble the breakfast sandwich each morning by toasting the english muffin, heating up the sausage and quiche cups and putting it all together.
- Or you can assemble it all in advance, placing the quiche cups, sausage and cheese inside the english muffins, wrapping them in tin foil (or reusable sandwich bags) and keeping them in the fridge or freezer. Just place them in the microwave without the tinfoil or in the oven (400 degrees, 10-20 minutes) to warm them up each morning.
- Add some hot sauce, vegan mayo or avocado to the insides to add some more moisture to the sandwiches
