We've made (and eaten) a lot of breakfast sandwiches, and this is our all-time favorite.

2-3 teaspoons oil or butter
3-4 oz tempeh bacon or bacon
2 brioche  buns (see note)
2 tablespoons of plant-based mayo
2 tablespoons green onions or chives, sliced thin
2 slices white cheddar (or similar sharp white "cheese")
Hot sauce (optional)

Serves 2

Cook the bacon or tempeh

Preheat a small, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add a teaspoon or two of butter or oil if using tempeh bacon. Fry the tempeh bacon or bacon until nicely browned and to your desired level of crispiness. Remove from the pan and set aside on a plate lined with paper towels to drain. Give the skillet a quick wipe down with a paper towel or clean kitchen towel, then return to the stove over medium heat.

Pan-fry the bread

Slather each piece of brioche with a layer of mayo. Place the bread mayo-side down in the same skillet over medium heat and fry until the bread is browned and crispy, using a spatula to press it down lightly and help it fry evenly. Set aside while you scramble the JUST Egg.

Cook the JUST Egg

Wipe out the skillet one more time, lower the heat to medium-low and add a teaspoon of butter or oil. Shake the bottle of JUST Egg well and pour your desired serving size into the warm skillet. Scramble like an egg, making sure you let the JUST Egg set into large curds that will hold together nicely in a breakfast sandwich. Use a small, stiff rubber spatula to stir occasionally, while still letting the JUST Egg heat evenly and set. With circular motions, push the cooked bits from the edge of the pan into the center.

If using JUST Egg Folded heat according to package directions.

Add the green onions

Once the JUST Egg starts to set, add in the green onions (if you prefer the green onions a bit snappier, hold off on adding them until you build the sandwich.) Scramble everything together until the JUST Egg is set, but not too dry.

Assemble the sandwich

Load the bottom piece of bread with hot scramble. If you haven’t added the green onions yet, sprinkle them on now. Add a dash of hot sauce, if that's your style! Top the JUST Egg with a slice of cheese, followed by a slice or two of bacon. Spread a little extra mayo on the top piece of bread, if desired, and close the sandwich. Enjoy immediately, or wrap it up and take it to-go!

Note: If you don’t have brioche buns or can’t find them, use your favorite bread or whatever you have on hand, like English muffins, croissants, or biscuits.
