About this recipe

For the heat seekers out there, this breakfast sandwich delivers triple the spice, packing a punch with pepper jack cheese, jalapeños and smoky chipotle mayo. The star of the show is our savory, plant-based egg nestled between two thick slices of buttery Texas toast. Then the real magic happens when you surround that plant-based goodness with all the spicy toppings. It’s the perfect way to start your day with a bang, or to satisfy your cravings at any time.

Need to dial down the heat? Swap out the jalapeños with bell peppers or your favorite veggie and use our plain vegan mayo instead of chipotle. Now, if anyone tries to tell you that plant-based food is bland, serve them up this epic vegan breakfast sandwich and blow their mind with all that flavor. Plus, you get to brag about it being healthier and more sustainable. If you just love a good breakfast sandwich, we’ve got plenty more on our cookbook page, along with even more JUST Egg and JUST Mayo recipe ideas.

    Small skillet

01 / 04

Sauté the jalapeños


Heat a medium skillet over high heat. Add a bit of oil, then add the sliced jalapeños and a pinch of salt. Sauté until softened and starting to brown and blister in spots.

02 / 04

Cook the JUST Egg


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

If using pourable JUST Egg, scramble like an egg in nonstick 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.

03 / 04

Pan-fry the bread


Heat the skillet over medium heat. Lightly butter both sides of the bread slices. Fry the bread slices until browned and crispy on both sides, using a spatula to press it down lightly and help fry evenly.

04 / 04

Assemble the sandwich


Spread each piece of bread generously on one side with JUST Chipotle Mayo. Layer the bottom pieces of bread with two slices of cheese each. Top the cheese with JUST Egg Folded, followed by sautéed jalapeños. Close the sandwich and enjoy immediately – or take it to-go.
