Waffle Breakfast Sandwich

If breakfast makes you yawn, consider this waffle breakfast sandwich your wake-up call. Savory breakfast sausage patties are topped with a classic tofu scramble and plenty of cheese, all sandwiched between your favorite vegan waffles and drizzled generously with maple syrup. This is a sandwich worth waking up for.

2 servings

what you’ll need:

8 ounces firm tofu, drained
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
½ teaspoon turmeric
¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons preferred vegetable oil, divided
8 ounces Tofurky DIY Breakfast Sausage, formed into 2 patties
4 green onions, finely chopped
½ red bell pepper, diced
4 prepared vegan waffles
1 cup preferred shredded vegan cheese (4 ounces)
Maple syrup, for serving

how to make:

  1. Preheat oven to 400℉.
  2. In a medium bowl, coarsely crumble tofu and toss with nutritional yeast, turmeric, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add sausage and cook, flipping once, until browned on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Set aside.
  4. In same skillet, heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add green onion and pepper and saute until barely tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in tofu mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 5 minutes.
  5. Place 2 waffles on a work surface and sausage, tofu, and cheese between them. Top with remaining waffles. Place on a baking sheet and place in oven until well-toasted, about 10 minutes. Serve with maple syrup.

Good food is kind to people, animals, the environment, and especially tastebuds. That’s exactly the kind of food we’ve been making at Tofurky for more than 35 years.

  1. For a truly “eggy” taste to the scramble, add just a pinch of kala namak (aka “black salt” – available at many specialty grocers or indian/middle-eastern market places, or order online) – just a pinch, though. Trust me, a little goes a LONG way!
