Every year, my family gathers at my Granny's for Christmas breakfast (in lieu of the traditional Xmas dinner). There's always tofu scramble for me and Gimme Lean. I usually bring vegan biscuits and gravy with me as well. Everybody else eats omni breakfast foods, including my Granny's beloved breakfast casserole. I don't know what's it in since I can't even remember the last time I was able to eat it, but I know it contains scrambled egg, cheese, and some kind of breakfast meat.
In honor of that baked assemblage of morning foods, I threw together this Vegan Breakfast Casserole to eat for brekkie throughout the week:
Sorry for the poor picture quality but I was working with some crappy lighting last night. Here's a better shot of the individual slice I ate this morning:
Vegan Breakfast Casserole
4 slices of whole grain or sprouted grain bread, torn into pieces
1 lb. tofu, scrambled (I use garlic powder, nooch, onion powder, turmeric, etc.)
1 package Gimme Lean, fried in slices and then cut into chunks
1 serving of noochy sauce (you know, the nooch, flour, water, Dijon, margarine deal) or use your favorite cheezy sauce recipe
1 large tomato, sliced
Preheat oven to 350 while you prepare tofu, sausage, and sauce. Place torn bread in bottom of a casserole dish. Top with a layer of scrambled tofu. Then add a layer of cooked vegan sausage. Pour cheezy sauce over the top and spread evenly. Top with tomato slices and bake for 15 minutes.
