About this recipe

Layered with diner-style home fries and caramelized onions, eating this sandwich is like sitting down for breakfast at your favorite diner. If you’ve never tried putting fries in your breakfast sandwich, prepare to float straight up to carb-heaven. Hash brown patties will also do the trick, if you have those on hand instead.

Taking the time to caramelize the onion and roast the potatoes until crispy is more than worth your while. But you can save time by using our convenient JUST Egg Folded, which you can pop right in the toaster or air fryer. Then spread this sandwich with our smoky JUST Chipotle Mayo (plant-based, egg-free, soy-free and seriously delicious) to bring it all together. Once you’re done savoring this indulgent plant-based breakfast experience, head to our cookbook page for more great recipes.

Makes 2 sandwiches



  • Pan

01 / 04

Caramelize the onion


Slowly cook the sliced onion in a sauté pan along with 1 tablespoon of oil and a pinch of salt over medium-low heat, until softened and caramelized. Stir only occasionally.

02 / 04

Roast the steak fries


Roast a generous handful of steak fries according to the package directions, if store-bought. If making from scratch, roast ¼-inch-thick wedges of russet or gold potatoes in a 425°F (220°C) oven until tender and golden-brown.

03 / 04

Cook the JUST Egg


If using JUST Egg Folded, heat up in a toaster, skillet, microwave or air fryer according to the directions on the box.

If using JUST Egg, scramble (like an egg) in non-stick skillet over medium heat with a bit of oil. Stir occasionally, letting it set into large curds that will hold together nicely in a breakfast sandwich. Once the liquid is cooked through, remove from the heat.

04 / 04

Assemble the sandwiches


Lightly toast the brioche buns, then spread both halves with JUST Chipotle Mayo. Start the sandwich with a big pinch of caramelized onions. Layer on the JUST Egg and a slice of cheddar cheese. Arrange steak fries on top of the cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Close the sandwich and enjoy immediately – or take it to-go.
