Egg McVegans

What you need: 

1 pound extra firm tofu, pressed
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package (8 ounces) veggie Canadian bacon
vegan cheese (one that melts well, like Follow Your Heart Vegan Gourmet, or Tofutti singles)
vegan English muffins, toasted
vegan margarine
vegan mayonnaise (I use Vegenaise), optional
salt and pepper, to taste

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Take a drinking glass which is about the same size around at the top as the English muffins, cut around the cup (or if you want, press the glass into the tofu) so that the tofu comes out round in shape. Take the round piece of tofu and cut it in half horizontally, so you end up with two circular pieces. Take the two halves and cut those into thirds, so that you end up with six round pieces of tofu that are about 1/2 inch thick. If you don't want to make 6 English muffins you can cut the tofu into four pieces if you like, which will yield a thicker egg.
2. On a rimmed baking sheet, pour the apple cider vinegar, olive oil, and salt and mix together. Put the tofu on this mixture and coat both sides. Bake for 10 minutes on one side, then flip and bake for another 10 minutes. (I usually cut up the extra little pieces of tofu and include them in the cooking, they are good to snack on).
3. Place the veggie Canadian bacon on a large frying pan on a medium low to low heat, flip it often and don't allow it to dry up, as it will turn up on the edges. After the tofu pieces are baked, turn off the heat and place a slice of the vegan cheese on top of each of the tofu rounds. I usually make the vegan cheese circular as well, but its your call. Place back in the oven to allow the vegan cheese to melt.
4. Butter English muffins on both sides with the vegan margarine of your choice. If you are using vegan mayonnaise, put it on one side and margarine on the other. Place one of the tofu rounds and Canadian bacon slices between the English muffin halves, salt and pepper to taste, and they are ready to eat.
It sounds like there's not much to them in the way of ingredients, but they come out really well and taste awesome.

These are amazing. I've been using Lightlife Fakini' Bacon slices instead of veg canadian bacon, and hummus instead of veg mayo. I sometimes freeze them and simply heat them up when I need them. They're the perfect running-out-the-door breakfast!

Sooo tasty! I cut back on the oil just a little, but it was excellent. The only problem is I crave these every time I see an egg sandwich in a  fast food commercial. I still haven't found the right cheese to go with this, though.

I made this a while ago but forgot to review...  I thought it was super tasty through my first, but upon eating the second, the vinegar taste became overwhelming.  I'm sure with a little tweaking this could be perfecto but due to the vinegar taste of the tofu my boyfriend (a self-proclaimed tofu slut) actually pulled the tofu out and ate his eggless.  Sad!  I still ate it all cause I'm a vacuum cleaner like that ;)

good but not great

WoW :)>>>
I wish we did not eat them before we thought to take a picture. My daughter and husband made them at 2 o'clock in the morning.

He added turmeric and traditional egg spices-- garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper.

I am grateful for this recipe mostly because it does not require frying and I will definitely use the vinegar trick for other recipes. Thanks!

This breakfast sandwich made me love being vegan even more than normal. I had it with 100% orange juice and homemade hash browns. What does McDonalds have on that?!

Anyway. This recipe rocks!

If anything does, this recipe dispels the myth that you can't have vegan 'comfort food'. Holy cow. Mine was probably a bit greasier, because I fried the tofu instead of baking it, but it was so good. Not something I would want every day, but it gets the job done during my 'man-periods'. ("man-struation?") When I fried it , I fried it also with nutritional yeast, and some cayenne & thyme. Super good.

Great recipe idea!  I forgot to marinate my "eggs" overnight, so they weren't as flavorful as they should be. 

I added tumeric to my eggs for color and replaced "bacon" with a thin slice of smoked tofu.

These were awful. The vinegary tofu tasted almost like vomit, and I had a difficult time salvaging the rest of it into something edible. I think it's better to just use a tofu scramble recipe. Ugh. What a waste of time and ingredients.
